If I add this solution so, My app will be rejected or approved?


johnny77221 commented Jan 9, 2017

I used this solution on 3 apps, which are all passed the app store review, so I think it's safe to use it right now

iDevo commented Jan 16, 2017

This might be a bit to specific but does anyone know the url to the "SIM Applications" in iOS 10?
In iOS 9 it was able with: prefs:root=Phone&path=SIMToolkit

You should use a capitalized Prefs instead of prefs on iOS 10

mikengyn commented Feb 1, 2017

App-Prefs should be used for IOS10.

@mikengyn Thanks, it works! Swift users will thank you

Apple rejected this code (6, April 2017)

Guideline 2.5.1 - Performance

Your app uses or references the following non-public APIs:


The use of non-public APIs is not permitted on the App Store because it can lead to a poor user experience should these APIs change.

@hongseok so sad to hear this, did mikengyn 's solution worked and pass the review?

shaibow commented May 16, 2017

how can use this code for listing installed apps in ios 10 ?


johnny77221 commented Jun 25, 2017

@shaibow No ideas now, the method -canOpenURL has been restricted since iOS9, there's no way to do this right now I think

I am facing the same issue as @hongseok as well.

Guideline 2.5.1 - Performance - Software Requirements
Your app uses or references the following non-public APIs:

  • LSApplicationWorkspace

Is there any other options beside using LSApplicationWorkspace?

I'm also getting this rejection from the app store.
