If you receive a notice that Apple has rejected your submission, you'll likely see an email like this:

You will need to reply to Apple's rejection in their Resolution Center. You can either click the link in the email, or login to your App Store Connect account and click the number bubble on your app icon:

Once you're in the Resolution Center, you'll see the rejection notice and explanation from Apple regarding their rejection. Almost invariably these rejections concern Guideline 4.2.6 and are now Apple's standard practice for all template-based apps. 

When replying to Apple's Review Team, here are somethings to keep in mind:

  • Let them know you are the station owner/content owner and provide any supporting documentation concerning your ownership of the station. You can attach your documents using the "Attach File" link below the reply box.
  • Your app is submitted under the correct account, because this developer account belongs to you, the station owner.
