This article answers the query: Which apps types are not supported by Apple?
There is no review process for Android or PWA Web Apps, which means you have free rein for those platforms! However, Apple's approval guidelines are stringent.
Following types of apps are a NO-GO for Apple. They're extremely hard to create without violating Apple's review guidelines. For this reason, we won't spend time uploading them, just as you shouldn't spend time creating them.
- App Company Apps:
For example, your new app company's name is Mobile App Masters, and you want to create the "Mobile App Masters App." There's no way Apple will approve it since it's purely marketing in nature. As a result, we will not upload it.
- Wedding or Personal Event Apps:
Apple will never approve an app that's for a wedding or any other personal event. It holds no long-term value in the marketplace, and after the event is over, it will most likely never be used again. Apple doesn't want unused apps floating around the App Store.
- Adult Content Apps:
An app with overt adult themes, nudity, or questionable content will never be accepted. This includes apps for gentlemen's clubs, escort services, adult entertainers, etc.
- Apple apps cannot be solely marketing in nature, meaning the app cannot simply list your services or products. There must be a useful function to the app that compels users to revisit it often.
- Apps must contain dynamic content and integrate with iOS's native features.
- Even if you believe your app doesn't violate these rules and has a distinct purpose, we will not upload it to the Apple App Store.
