Discussion surrounding the App Store approval process is always ongoing,

with many developers frustrated at the lack of clarity Apple provides over

why certain applications make the cut, while others do not.

The best way to ensure that your application makes it through this process

is to ensure you stick by every guideline given in Apple’s documentation.

This will no doubt require plenty of reading (and likely restrict or modify a

few of the grand ideas you had for your app), but will avoid frustration when

you come to submit it.

Reviewers look for a variety of different things when assessing your

application, with the main factors being bugs or regular crashes, use

of unauthorized APIs, inappropriate content, privacy infringement, and

“avoiding applications that degrade the core experience of the iPhone”9
.

This is where a good understanding and application of the Human Interface

Guidelines will serve you well. Aiming to uphold and improve the core

experience of the iPhone certainly puts you in Apple’s “good books”, and is

a solid step towards having your application approved.

Ultimately, it’s best to accept that the approval process is a necessary

frustration. Make sure that you submit the absolute best standard of

application you can, and take on board any advice received from Apple’s

team of reviewers.

How Long Does It Take?

The entire process of application review seems to be shrouded in secrecy.

A few things Apple has released are that (a) at least two different reviewers

study each application so that the review process is applied uniformly, and

(b) an App Store executive review board exists that determines procedures

and sets policy for the review process, as well as reviewing applications that

are escalated to a higher level.

In theory, Apple is fairly effcient at approving applications. At the time of

writing this, 85% of new apps and 95% of app updates are approved (or

rejected) within 7 days.10

Be prepared to wait a little while, and use the time

wisely to start working on different promotion methods.
