iOS App Store Deprecated API

New warning from apple, I"m using WKwebview but I guess one of my corodva pluguns may use UIwebview.

Does anyone know how to find the culprit besides removing one plugin at a time?

Dear Developer,

We identified one or more issues with a recent delivery for your app, your delivery was successful, but you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery:

ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage - Apple will stop accepting submissions of apps that use UIWebView APIs . See https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/uiwebview for more information.

After you’ve corrected the issues, you can use Xcode or Application Loader to upload a new binary to App Store Connect.

Best regards,

The App Store Team

So it’s cordova-ios https://github.com/apache/cordova-ios/issues/661
I hope we can get a quick patch that will remove the UIWebView

Same here, hoping for a quick patch. Even today I continue to recommend Meteor for mobile app development.

As of 4 days ago I received this warning but was still able to successfully publish an app to the app store.

I’ve :+1: your bug:

Agreed, as long as apple doesn’t start denying app submissions we should be ok but there is no date on when the will stop us.

Yep - the lack of date from Apple is frustrating. Fortunately we will also be able to use Hot Code Push for while, until we need to add/update plugins or submit a brand new app…
