Sending your app to App Store review

Role requirement

To send your app to App Store review, you need to have an Admin or a Developer role in your app's team.

After you’ve uploaded your release candidate to TestFlight and the build processing is finished, you can submit it for App Store review, where Apple will review your release:

  1. Open your release.

  2. Select App Store review on the left navigation bar.

  3. Scroll down and click on Edit settings to specify how Apple should release your version after the approval process.

  4. Choose if you want to phase your release under Phased release for automatic updates.

    If you opt for a phased release, at first, only some of your users will have access to the contents of your release. Gradually, over a 7-day period, all of your users will get access.

  5. Click Save changes.

  6. Check the box next to I have revised the metadata for this version in App Store Connect.

  7. Click Submit to App Review.

    Canceling App Store review

    You can cancel the App Store review before it finishes by clicking on the Cancel App Store review button.

If you selected Automatically release this version, your app will be released as soon as Apple finishes the app review process. Your app will only be released after the date you specified under Your local date and time if you selected Automatically release this version after the App Review, no earlier than .

You can monitor the release status on the Release page.

You can proceed to Releasing your app on the App Store for manual releases.
