App Store: Publishing Delays

Hi everyone,

Has anyone experienced difficulties publishing an app in Apple Store? The Android version of my app has been published over a week ago now, and Apple keep coming back asking for more info and delaying the whole process and I can’t launch my app. It’s so frustrating, as I want to launch the app in my hospital this week…

Any suggestions? Help…


Hi @AnnaMedic

The sooner you provide the required info to Apple, the sooner they publish it.

There’s no way around it, and every app is different.


Yes, I provided them with the info last week, think it was on Thursday. Do they review apps on the weekend, or just Mon-Fri?

Trying to estimate when they’ll get back to me.



Sometimes it can take a few days. I’ve been there myself. Nothing to do but wait until they review the information.

Just be patient and follow all instructions. It will be published. Apple is easier to publish than Android if instructions are adhered.

I disagree @endieumunna , in my experience, Google has been the easier one with less restrictions. Apple always rejects my apps on the first submission. I can’t even think of a single time that Apple has approved an app on the first submission. Google, on the other hand, has been super easy to get approved.

Overall, I have only had a couple of rejections from Google but a TON from apple.

@AnnaMedic it sucks but you gotta follow Apple’s rules and guidelines, even if that means tweaking the app a few times in order to get it approved. And yeah, it does sometimes take them a week to review. Most of the time, they review within 48 hours though.
