Xcode and iOS Distribution

#1 Post by TomDowd » Fri May 14, 2021 6:40 pm

Hello!

There is a notice on the Apple developer site that reads:
"Starting April 26, 2021, all iOS and iPadOS apps submitted to the App Store must be built with Xcode 12 and the iOS 14 SDK."
(https://developer.apple.com/ios/submit/)

Does that mean that RenPy projects are no longer distributable for iOS and iPadOS via the Apple App Store?

Thanks!

We've been building against iOS 14, and the version of Xcode you use is up to you.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if that was referring to the underlying code base or not.
