Earlier this year, Apple revealed it would be rejecting App Store submissions that included the price in the name.
Now, all submissions that include pricing information in their metadata will be blocked by Apple.
If an app with this information is submitted, you will receive the following error message: “Your app’s name, icons, screenshots, or previews to be displayed on the App Store include references to your app’s price, which is not considered a part of these metadata items.
“Please remove any references to your app’s price from your app’s name, including any references to your app being free or discounted. If you would like to advertise changes to your app’s price, it would be appropriate to include this information in the app description. Changes to your app’s price can be made in the Pricing and Availability section of iTunes Connect.”
The news, which surfaced last month, comes alongside other recent changes to the App Store, with the release of iOS 10.3.
This includes the ability for app makers to respond to reviews on the App Store, and the fact that developers can now only ask for reviews from users three times a year.
