In this guide we'll go over every step needed to upload a new version of your app to the App Store.

Open App Store Connect

Select your app.

Click the plus button in the left menu.

Click the plus button in the left menu.

Enter a new version number higher than the last one and then click 'Create'.

Example: If your last one was 1.0 you can enter 1.1 now. You can see your last version number below the plus button you clicked in the previous step.

Enter a new version number higher than the last one. For example, if your last one was 1.0, you can enter 1.1 now.

Fill out the following fields:

  • Version Information: Describe what's new in this app update.

    Example: Fixed bugs and improved performance. Updated our app icon to our new logo.

  • Optionally change fields like 'Promotional Text', 'Keywords', 'Support URL', 'Marketing URL' and 'Description'.

  • Update the app review information if it changed since the initial publishing of your app.

  • Optionally change the options under 'Version Release', 'Phased Release for Automatic Updates' and 'Reset iOS Summary Rating'. The default configuration is usually fine though.

Click 'Select a build before you submit your app'

Click 'Select a build before you submit your app'

Pick the newest build (highest build number).

Afterwards, an export compliance dialog might come up. If it does, you can find the answers to the questions in the dialog and more information on export compliance here.

That's it! You can click 'Submit for Review' now if you're ready.

This website is operated by me, Jan, and my team. I have previously developed a bunch of apps for clients and my own projects. Back in 2019 I noticed that none of the existing website to app converters provide the kind of service I'd expect as a customer. That inspired me to develop a better solution - webtoapp.design. By now, the apps I've created with my team have already been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times from the app stores.
