ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage - Apple will stop accepting submissions UIWebView - WebView not deployable to apple AppStore iOS

  • Hi,
    i just got my app rejected by apple because i use WebView.

    Any news about this? Can not deploy WebView app to iOS AppStore.

    .pro file:

    QT += ... webview


    import QtWebView 1.12
    Item {
        WebView {
            id: webView
            anchors.fill: parent

    Apple rejected iOS deployment:

    ITMS-90809: Deprecated API UsageĀ - Apple will stop accepting submissions of apps that use UIWebView APIs . See for more information.

    Is there a way to display web content on iOS without getting rejected from AppStore?

    That's a question you should rather bring to the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.

    @Nando As far as I know, Apple recently marked a couple of API's as private. and Qt's WebView is using some of those.
    A rather random move from Apple, but it happens. AFAIK no workaround as of jet, but as @SGaist said, bring this the the mailing list, there people should be able to help/inform you more
