The Cupertino Company has informed the developers that from May 1 applications will have free access to the UDID and those that will not support the 4” iPhone 5 display will be automatically rejected on the App Store.
If you are in possession of an iPhone 5, you will certainly know that the black bars at the top and bottom in every application are really annoying this is because the apps does not properly support the Retina display.
Apple has informed developers through an announcement on its website that it will begin to automatically reject all applications that do not support 4” resolution, in addition to those who have access to the unique identification code of each iPhone. To overcome this lack, the Cupertino Company invites developers to use Apple’s proprietary service, set up recently to identify the devices for marketing purposes.
“Starting May 1, the App Store will no longer accept new apps or app updates that access UDIDs. Please update your apps and servers to associate users with the Vendor or Advertising identifiers introduced in iOS 6. You can find more details in the UIDevice Class Reference.”
We know that Apple has already turned down few applications in the past for the above reason, with the announcement published, however, has defined a rule not to circumvent, that will be applied in all cases of “offense”.
