Apple has today announced it will soon require the use of Xcode 14.1 for App Store submissions.

From April 25, submissions to the App Store will need to be built using Xcode 14. This applies to both updates for existing applications and submissions of new applications.

“When building your app, we highly recommend taking advantage of the latest advances in iOS 16iPadOS 16 and watchOS 9,” Apple says.

The announcement follows Google’s recent announcement that it will require apps to target Android API 33 by August 31 this year for submissions to the Play Store.
