Apple Asks Developers to Submit iOS 13 Compatible Apps with April 2020 Deadline
Apple has today encouraged iOS developers in a news post to submit their updated apps to the App Store and take advantage of iOS 13’s new features like Dark Mode and Sign in with Apple, as well as the latest advances in ARKit 3, Core ML 3, and Siri.
The company has instructed the developers to build their apps using Xcode 11 GM seed, test them on iOS devices running the latest GM seeds, and submit them for review as soon as possible.
At the same time, however, Apple has also set an April 2020 deadline after which all new apps and app updates will be required to be built with the iOS 13 SDK. Additionally, all apps will also be required to support the full-screen display on iPhone XS Max and newer devices:
“With iOS 13, your app can take advantage of Dark Mode, a dramatic new look for iPhone, Sign in with Apple, the fast, easy way to sign in to apps, and the latest advances in ARKit 3, Core ML 3, and Siri.
Starting April 2020, all new apps and app updates will need to be built with the iOS 13 SDK and support the all-screen design of iPhone XS Max or later.”
