iOS10: Privacy issues app rejection email (Solution)

in General Posts: 152

Hi all,

Not sure if anyone has seen this yet but am pushing my app up to iTunes Connect and am getting a rejection from Apple based on:

This app attempts to access privacy-sensitive data without a usage description. The app's Info.plist must contain an NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription key with a string value explaining to the user how the app uses this data.

You may get this for Camera and Photo...

Even though I added the offending keys to Info.plist as advised, this did NOT solve the problem for me...

I Googled around with no results then managed to find the solution myself...

What I had to do was go into the APP-Info.plist, e.g in the graphical view by clicking on my Target at the top of the project layout hierarchy, where you have options along the top for General, Capabilities, Resource Tags etc. and go to 'Info'...

Under Custom iOS Target Properties add the keys in here, e.g.:

Privacy - Camera Usage Description
Privacy - Photo Library Usage Description

with any text you like (if you don't use the above), e.g.:

This app uses a 3rd party library that can use this service, but this app does not

Took me some time to figure this out, hope it may help someone!
