Hey! In desperate need of your help!! Got this from apple, And the thing is I don't know why in the world the purchase is empty and also do I really need to have a In app purchase? Don't know if it's need to for my magazine to have subscribtion.

We found that your app did not achieve the core functionality described in your marketing materials or release notes, as required by the  App Store Review Guidelines.

Specifically, the storefront does not contain any downloadable issues. Please see the attached screenshot for details.

It would be appropriate to revise your app to ensure this feature is fully implemented or to revise your Application Description, Release Notes, and/or screenshots to remove this content.

If your iTunes Connect Application State is Metadata Rejected, we do NOT require a new binary. In iTunes Connect > Manage Your Applications, select your app and click View Details. 

  • Click Edit in the Metadata section
  • Revise the desired metadata values
  • Click "Save" at the bottom of the screen
  • Once you click Save, you will see the "Submit New Metadata" button in the top right. Click "Submit New Metadata"

If your iTunes Connect Application State is Rejected, a new binary will be required. Make the desired metadata changes when you upload the new binary.

NOTE: Please be sure to make any metadata changes to all App Localizations by clicking the Edit button next to each localization.

For discrete code-level questions, you may wish to consult with  Apple Developer Technical Support. Please be sure to:

  • include the complete details of your rejection issues
  • prepare any symbolicated crash logs, screenshots, and steps to reproduce the issues for when the DTS engineer follows up. 

For information on how to symbolicate and read a crash log, please see  Tech Note TN2151 Understanding and Analyzing iPhone OS Application Crash Reports.

If you have difficulty reproducing this issue, please try testing the workflow as described in <>Testing Workflow with Xcode's Archive feature".
