Apple Still Sitting on Entitlement Requests

Timo Hetzel:

Let me check my CarPlay entitlement request… ∞ days and counting.


The fact that developers think about separating an app and degrading the user experience because of app review times should sound your alarm bells. Same for HomeKit. Please fix review times for apps with special entitlements.

Anders Borum:

Apple engineers at WWDC: Can’t wait to see what you build.

Apple App Review: We can wait and you will wait.

Wayne Dixon:

I submitted an entitlement request 3 weeks ago and still haven’t heard anything.


Update (2022-09-09): Oskar Groth:

Finally got approved for a DriverKit entitlement after just checks calendar 445 days 💀

Update (2023-02-03): Aaron Pearce:

Been trying to get an advanced HomeKit entitlement since July last year. Last update I heard was in December when I asked for an update and got back that it was escalated. Nothing since.

Update (2023-07-14): Greg de J:

160 days since my request to for @quichebrowser. Takes ~5 weeks to get a reply, where they ask information I already provided, or give wrong instructions contradicting Apple docs.
