Certain 'publish step' app changes or problems you face may require you to republish your iOS or Android app. This article describes how you can republish your app to get it updated and reinstated.
You have to republish your iOS or Android app because
- you implemented specific 'publish step' changes on an existing app that require republishing
- you faced app issues related to push notifications, app features not working properly or an app that appears to be deactivated/cancelled or even an app removed from GooglePlay or Apple Store. This is often because your app is not updated (ie on an old release) and is not exploiting all the latest rolled-out fixes that come with the most recent releases. Republishing forces the app to get reactivated and thus published on the latest source code ensuring that all available fixes are applied to your app.
You can have a read at the When Do I need to Republish an App KB article for further information on when you need to get them reinstated.
