iOS SDK - App Submission

When preparing to send your binary to Apple, you will set up an application target in the iTunes Connect portal ( for details). During this process, you will be presented with the question, "Does this app use the Advertising Identifier (IDFA)?"

Your application may or may not be using this value for your own purposes, but the Connect SDK does access it (described below). So, it is required that you answer, "Yes" to the aforementioned question.

If your application is utilizing Connect's analytics, geofencing or push notification features, be sure to check the last use case option - that the application uses the IDFA to "Attribute an action taken within this app to a previously served advertisement" as advertisments that you might have served can be related to users actions within your app.

If your application is also using Connect's Engage (display advertisements) feature, be sure to select the option: "Serve advertisements within the app". Naturally, if your application is only using the Engage functionality, leave all other options unchecked (as related to Connect's use of the IDFA)

You will also need to confirm that your app honors a user's "Limit Ad Tracking" setting in iOS. The Connect SDK does honor this flag and will not access or otherwise utilize the IDFA value if the user has selected the "Limit Ad Tracking" feature. Ensure that this confirmation and the previously mentioned IDFA use options are checked to facilitate a smooth application review process.
