To make it easier for customers to find great apps that fit their needs, we want to ensure that apps available on the App Store are functional and up-to-date. We are implementing an ongoing process of evaluating apps, removing apps that no longer function as intended, don’t follow current review guidelines, or are outdated.
So happy that this is happening. As someone who makes videos of amazing apps in the app store this will make it easier and better for finding those amazing apps. There are so many apps in the app store that have not been updated. I always check the last update, before I click download.
The best part the cleaning starts on Sept 7, 2016. For developers that need more information can go here.
