Apple Tells Developers to Start Submitting Apps for iOS 7


The iOS 7 golden master was released to developers today along with the Xcode 5 golden master. Developers can now finalize and submit their iOS 7 apps and updates to Apple for review.

An email which was sent to developers earlier today says:

iOS 7 will soon be in the hands of hundreds of millions of customers. Reimagine your app’s interface with the clarity, translucency and depth of iOS 7. Integrate APIs for AirDrop, multitasking, games, and camera, as well as new APIs that take advantage of the powerful new capabilities of iPhone 5s.

“To prepare your apps for the App Store, download the GM seed of iOS 7 and Xcode 5, test, and optimize for iOS 7. Submit your apps today.”

A screenshot of the email is provided below.


iOS 7 will be available to the public for free on September 18 and will be packing a lot of new features and design changes.
