A newsletter from Apple: Changes to Newsstand in iOS 9

Hi Alive Software,

We’re making some important changes to Newsstand in iOS 9 that will impact your Newsstand apps. You may need to take some of the steps outlined below to ensure your app appears correctly on the App Store and across devices.

Newsstand App
With iOS 9, which will be available for customers later this fall, the Newsstand app will no longer be available. Instead, all existing Newsstand apps will be in a newly created folder, Newsstand, which will appear on the Home screen. You’ll still be able to offer In-App Purchase subscriptions for your magazine and newspaper apps on the App Store. Background downloads will also continue to work and existing subscriptions won’t be affected.

Category Name
With the release of iOS 9, apps in the Newsstand category will automatically move to a new category called Magazines & Newspapers. Your primary category won’t change. If you prefer a different category for your app, you’ll be able to change categories when you submit a new app version after iOS 9 becomes available.

App Icons
Magazine and newspaper apps will no longer display custom Newsstand cover art or per-issue art. Instead, they’ll just display their standard app icon. Make sure your app icon scales well to all sizes and is easy to read. For more details, see the iOS Human Interface Guidelines.

Atom Feeds and Metadata
After the iOS 9 release, you’ll no longer have access to the Newsstand Atom feeds to update your metadata cover art. We recommend that you add generic cover art to your Atom feed and update your app’s description regularly. You’ll still be able to update your app screenshots and metadata without submitting a new app version. Learn more on our App Store product page.

If you have any questions, contact us.
