Apple designed WKWebView in 2014 to ensure that you can integrate web content into your app quickly, securely and consistently across iOS and macOS. Since then, we have recommended that you use WKWebView instead of UIWebView and WebView – both of which were formally discontinued. New apps that contain this framework are no longer accepted by the App Store. And last year, we announced that the App Store will no longer accept app updates that include UIWebView as of December 2020.
To give you extra time to adopt WKWebView and to ensure that it supports the features often requested by developers, this app update deadline has been extended beyond the end of 2020. We will notify you when a new deadline is confirmed.
