Why reject the first accepted build?
Two weeks ago on a Sunday evening, I had submitted my first build for review and I managed to get a response in 7 days and that build was approved to be released to the app store. So why didn’t I? well after I submitted the build for review, I managed to find 2 very small bugs, to do with the initial state of the app, so those bugs could only be spotted when you do a fresh install and perform certain specific actions. The bug fixes were really small, but the fact that I saw the bugs, I simple couldn’t release it without fixing them. In either case the review process did help me with one thing i.e. I wanted to see if there is anything obviously wrong with my build to prevent it from being released on the app store. So turns out there isn’t, so on getting the feedback from Apple, I just had the build “developer rejected” and submitted a new build for review.
