The most common issues that cause apps to get rejected by Apple
For developers wondering why their application was rejected from the Apple App Store, the company has published the most common reason apps get rejected.

“Before you develop your app, it’s important to become familiar with the technical, content and design criteria that we use to review all apps,” the company wrote on its website.

The most common app rejections include:
• Crashes and bugs
• Broken links
• Placeholder content
• Incomplete information
• Inaccurate descriptions
• Misleading users
• Substandard user interface
• Advertisements
• Web clippings, content aggregators or a collection of links
• Repeated submission of similar apps
• Not enough lasting value

Apple tracked applications that were rejected during a seven-day period ending August 28 and found that the most common reasons for rejection were for developers not providing enough information and for submitting applications with bugs.
