Apple Extends Deadline for Apps Using UIWebView

Apple Extends Deadline for Apps Using UIWebView

Posted October 9, 2020 at 5:01am by iClarified
Apple has extended the deadline for developers to discontinue the use of UIWebView in their apps.

WKWebView was introduced in 2014 and the company notes that it is the recommended way to integrate web content into your app, rather than using UIWebView or WebView.

New apps containing these frameworks are no longer accepted by the App Store. And last year, we announced that the App Store will no longer accept app updates containing UIWebView as of December 2020. However, to provide additional time for you to adopt WKWebView and to ensure that it supports the features most often requested by developers, this deadline for app updates has been extended beyond the end of 2020. We’ll let you know when a new deadline is confirmed.
