        Hi there,

         

        Our dev team is continually getting these strong warning messages whenever we submit an app to the Appstore.

         

        ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage - Apple will no longer accept submissions of new apps that use UIWebView as of April 30, 2020 and app updates that use UIWebView as of December 2020. Instead, use WKWebView for improved security and reliability. Learn more (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/uiwebview).

         

        This concerns me as we are almost at the end of the April.  I'd like to know the extent of this.

         

        What is the difference between 'new apps' and 'app updates'.  My understanding is that NEW APPS means new apps that are submitted to the ap store with a new bundle idm ew SKU, and new Apple ID.  This flow will not accept submissions of new apps that use UIWebView as of April 30, 2020.

         

        "App updates" assume that an app already exists in the app store (with a Bundle ID, SKU, Apple ID), and so updates (new builds to this app) wil be allowed up the December 2020.

         

        Please clarify.
