Many of you have been receiving upload error notices from Apple over the last few weeks [Updates (1/19 - 1/23] like the one below. The email refers to February 1st changes to their upload requirements, as well as a June 1st update requirement change. There is no need to worry about these notices.
'We have discovered one or more issues with your recent delivery for "__". Your delivery was successful, but you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery...'
Q: What do these requirement changes mean?
A:64-bit optimization is an advanced architecture that the iPhone 5S and all later iPhones now feature. Apple has begun phasing out its older generation devices, which do not include the 64-bit chip. Our apps already include the iOS 8 SDK, which essentially means they are compatible with iOS 8 and perform well on devices running this version.
Q: Do I have to do anything when I receive these emails?
A: Nope! Apple is informing you that your app upload was successful, but warning about future changes.
Q: Is Bizness Apps prepared for those future changes?
A: We sure are! Our next source code release will include the mentioned 64-bit optimization, and our apps already include the iOS 8 SDK. This means that when our next source code is released, all apps published/uploaded with that source code will meet the above requirements. Apps already published/live are unaffected by this change, but as Apple mentioned, app updates will face the same requirements. This will not be a problem since apps published after our next source code release will be loaded with our most up-to-date source code.
Q: When will this new source code be available?
A: We plan to begin uploading apps with the new source code no later than February 1st in order to meet Apple's deadline. We will send out affirmative updates and post on our blog when the release date is finalized.
