Newsstand issue with AppStore build;

Posted on Updated on

Last evening, I was trying to submit my applicaiton over app store and got following error regarding Newsstand; I’m using  Mac OS X 10.6.8 with Xcode Version 4.2 (Build 4C199) having iOS 5.0;

To include newsstand features, the info.plist must include the uinewsstandapp=true

Although I don’t use newsstand and i don’t want to use. So where was my mistake?

For some background knowledge of Newsstand, with the release of iOS 5, iOS organizes your magazine and newspaper app subscriptions in Newsstand: a folder that lets you access your favorite publications quickly and easily. There’s also a new place on the App Store just for newspaper and magazine subscriptions. (source: Apple iOS features)

After some search over search engins, i found that iOS adds an attribute in your projects’ info.plist for newsstand, requiring you to add icons for this feature; You can find this entry under Icons files and/or Icons files (iOS5) group;

If you don’t want to use this feature, simply delete this group via (-) infront of this entry;
Clean your project and reArchive to validate again; Hopefully this issue will be resolved;

If I’m missing anything regarding the issue, kindly share;

    In new xcode, there is a newstand entry in CFBundleIcon so just remove it and enjoy submitting your app to itunes 🙂
