After a battle with app developer Basecamp, Apple has now decided to make a few changes to the app review and feedback system. This system is used by various developers when it comes to developing apps for IOS and other Apple operating systems. In a message that was posted by Apple, the company’s review team will not hinder important bug-fixes and updates to already-published apps while the app is disputing guidelines that have nothing to do with the bug fixes. 

Basecamp has claimed that Apple held back important and relevant updates to bug-fixes while the two companies battles it out in court. It seems like a petty move on Apple’s part but who knows what goes on in the backrooms of Apple. Apple has also created an option where developers can ‘suggest changes’ to the new guidelines. In a statement to the press, Apple said, “The App Store is dedicated to providing a great experience for everyone. To continue offering a safe place for users to download apps and helping you successfully develop apps that are secure, high-quality, reliable, and respectful of user privacy, we’ve updated the app review process as announced at WWDC20. For apps that are already on the App Store, bug fixes will no longer be delayed over guideline violations except for those related to legal issues. You’ll instead be able to address guideline violations in your next submission. And now, in addition to appealing decisions about whether an app violates guidelines, you can suggest changes to the guidelines. We also encourage you to submit your App Store and Apple development platform suggestions, so we can continue to improve experiences for the developer community.”

Apple has been beefing with Fortnite creators Epic Games as well. It’s been an ugly battle and if you do want to read more about that, you can head here. Apple could also launch its own online store as soon as September 2020. You can read more about that here
