Today, Apple made changes to its app review process to save face with devs | Ars Technica

Apple can remove apps that violate App Store guidelines or stop delivering updates. In 2020, paid email apps such as HEY and Epic Games' Fortnite will remove apps for violating App Store guidelines. In addition, Apple has blocked updates to the WordPress app for iOS for violating the guidelines. As a result, the iOS version of the WordPress app is temporarily unable to fix bugs.

To flexibly address these issues, Apple has updated the App Store app review process. Bug fix updates will no longer be blocked if you violate the guidelines.

In addition, Apple also announced that developers can now 'suggest changes to the guidelines.' Specifically, from the form below ...

Select 'Suggest changes to guidelines' ...

Suggest which items in the guidelines you would like to change.

With this update of the review process, not only will you be able to update your app without problems, even if you're in talks with Apple like HEY, but you'll also be able to challenge problematic guidelines. However, foreign media Ars Technica reports, 'While this change may reduce the number of bad reports about Apple, it doesn't address the major issues facing app developers.'
