Apple Reminds Developers That Account Deletion Requirement Begins June 30

Apple is reminding developers that apps with account creation support must account deletion by June 30.

As a reminder, apps that support account creation must let users initiate deletion of their account within the app starting June 30, 2022, as described in App Store Review Guideline 5.1.1(v). This deadline was extended to provide additional time for implementation of this requirement.

Please keep these requirements in mind when updating your app:


● The account deletion option should be easy to find in your app.
● If your app offers Sign in with Apple, you’ll need to use the Sign in with Apple REST API to revoke user tokens when deleting an account.
● It’s insufficient to only provide the ability to temporarily disable or deactivate an account. People should be able to delete the account along with their personal data.
● Apps in highly-regulated industries may provide additional customer service flows to confirm and facilitate the account deletion process.
● Follow applicable legal requirements for storing and retaining user account information, and for handling account deletion. This includes complying with local laws in different countries or regions. ● As always, check with your legal counsel.
