    Hi

    Just tried submitting an AppBuilder App (it is already in app store - third version) and my binary app.ipa upload failed. iTunes complained about CFBundleShortVersionString missing from the plist.

    It is not in the plist so I added it like below - rebuilt the app.ipa and resubmitted without a problem.

    Think App Store may be a little more fussy now and Telerik should include this in the default builds

    <key>CFBundleVersion</key>
    <string>$BundleVersion$</string>
    <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key>
    <string>$BundleVersion$</string>

    Should it be reported as a bug???

    Thanks
    Darren

    Hi Darren,

    Thank you for contacting us. Apple have indeed introduced a new requirement in the bundle approval process when uploading your app to iTunes Connect. Info.plist must now contain the following key: CFBundleShortVersionString.

    Currently, AppBuilder does not automatically set this key and you need to set it manually as you have already done. We are aware of the issue and we have outlined the steps for manually adding the key in 
    this forum post. We will also make sure to include a fix (to automatically set this key based on the value for Version that you have set in the Project Properties dialog) with our next release.

    Regards,

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
