Not a small number of applications that will disappear from the AppStore in just a few weeks and, for similar reasons, may not work on your iPhone.
According to the rules imposed by the Cupertino giant, which all applications available on iPhone, iPad or Mac must follow, many programs will disappear from the company’s virtual store on the penultimate day of next month. To escape, the condition is simple, in case it forces you or strongly recommends you to create an in-app account, you must facilitate a friendly way to delete that account, if that’s what you want.
The Apple change that all developers need to know about
At the 2021 WWDC conference at Apple, the company detailed several rules that developers must follow in the future. At their head is the obligation of an account deletion function. Those who do not align with the claims of the American giant will be left without applications.
But the actual account is just the beginning. It is important that a developer, if you wish, help you to delete all the data that you have generated in the application during the period in which you used it.
Apple reminded this week that the deadline to align with the new rules is June 30, 2022. Basically, developers have been given a full year to embrace and implement the changes. If they haven’t been able to do it so far, they have a month to line up.
The announcement from Apple comes at a time when the American company led by Tim Cook is preparing for the latest edition of the annual World Wide Developers Conference or WWDC. It is scheduled for June 6 this year, just a few days away. Usually, future versions of iOS and macOS are detailed at this event. Some new hardware gadgets may also be revealed, but nothing is certain from this point of view.
