iOS App Store Asset Requirements

Here are the following things we will need to submit our app in the iOS App Store.

Text Requirements:

  • Name: ( The name of your app as it will appear on the App Store. This can't be longer than 255 characters. )
  • Version: ( The version number is shown on the App Store and should match the one you used in Xcode. )
  • SKU: ( A unique ID for your app that is not visible on the App Store. This is really for internal use only, but you cannot change it once you've made it )
  • Description: ( A description of your app, detailing features and functionality. This need to be in plain text, no HTML supported. I typically research how competitors list their products and make sure I cover the same topics they do and more )
  • Keywords: ( One or more keywords that describe your app. Keywords make App Store search results more accurate. Separate keywords with a comma. I try to use words that will help people find my app that might not otherwise be in the description, but also important ones from the title and description. )

  • Marketing URL: ( OPTIONAL: A URL with marketing information about your app. This URL will be visible on the App Store. )

Privacy policies are required for apps that are Made for Kids or offer auto-renewable In-App Purchases or free subscriptions. They are also required for apps with account registration, apps that access a user’s existing account, or as otherwise required by law. Privacy policies are recommended for apps that collect user- or device-related data. )
  • Copyright: ( The name of the person or entity that owns the exclusive rights to your app, preceded by the year the rights were obtained (for example, "2008 Acme Inc."). Do not provide a URL. )

If anyone runs into the iTunes Connect wrong size error, even that you know that the video has the proper size, I've managed to solve this by changing the "Anamorphic" value in the "Picture Settings" configuration.

Prior to making the video the proper size, at the bottom of this dialog, the "Anamorphic" values were 751 x 1334, even that the original ones were 750 x 1334.

By setting the Anamorphic dropdown to "Custom" and cropping 1px from the extra side, I've managed to change the values to 750 x 1334.
After this I was able to upload the video to iTunes connect without issues.

NOTE 1: I think there's a bug in HandBrake with the cropping change. When setting the cropping to 1px, the video originally changed from 751 to 749. If you play with the cropping values long enough, you should be able to get to the right size.

NOTE 2: I hadn't any trouble uploading the videos and they are at review process right now. I'll update this post if the review fails for any reason related to the video format/size.
