App store stopped accepting UIWebView APIs

Tried to upload our app today, got this response:

Dear Developer,

We identified one or more issues with a recent delivery for your app, “XXX”. Your delivery was successful, but you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery:

ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage - Apple will stop accepting submissions of apps that use UIWebView APIs . See https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/uiwebview for more information.

After you’ve corrected the issues, you can upload a new binary to App Store Connect.

Best regards,

The App Store Team

I’m not actually using it, so I’m gonna try and get rid of it. If I remember correctly, it’s just a flag in Projucer. But nonetheless noteable.

Yes, we’re aware of it. You can disable the web view functionality if you aren’t using it by setting the JUCE_WEB_BROWSER flag in juce_gui_extra to false.
