Apple has informed developers through a new post on its developer News & Updates page that from July 2018 all app submissions to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina display of iPhone X.
The change in policy means Apple will automatically reject App Store submissions that don’t comply with the new guidelines first shared back in February.
Ironically, although Apple is pushing developers to update their apps to support the iPhone X display, Apple themselves still have a handful of applications such as iTunes Connect, iTunes Remote, Beats Pill+, Music Memos, and AirPort Utility that haven’t yet been built for the new Super Retina display.
iOS 11 delivers innovative features and the redesigned App Store to hundreds of millions of customers around the world. Your apps can deliver more intelligent, unified, and immersive experiences with Core ML, ARKit, new camera APIs, new SiriKit domains, Apple Music integration, drag and drop for iPad, and more. Starting July 2018, all iOS app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina display of iPhone X.
