Gambling apps not updating in app store

We are hearing that gambling app developers are struggling to get their app updates successfully through Apple’s verification process.

Apple has had a problem now for some time with developers applying for an enterprise certificate to access the relevant app design tools. Instead of then submitting the app internally for company use as intended, the developer can simply choose to distribute the app to a third party App Store or website.

This bypasses all of Apples stringent verification processes. This method also ensures that the app will function as designed, without the need of a jailbreak.

Very little has seemingly been done about this until now. Some changes have been made to the approval process. These changes look like they have had a knock-on effect, affecting legitimate gambling companies and beyond.

This predominantly is why you haven’t seen any gambling app updates on your iPhones and iPads since the beginning of March.

There are updates currently being put on the back burner until this new verification process by Apple has had its creases ironed out. Hopefully this will only halt progress to betting apps in the short term. We are confident that normal service will be resumed quite quickly and the backlog of updates should become available as soon as these issues have been resolved.

These issues won’t affect your current betting experience, it just delays you from receiving an enhanced or a more fine tuned experience. There may be a little downtime experienced if legitimate gambling apps are still trying to push updates through at the present.

However these downtimes should be quickly resolved as all it would take is for the developer to roll back to the original version once the update has been rejected or unsuccessful.

We have reached out to the big name gambling companies for a reaction to the issues they are currently facing. We will update this page with any new information we are able to ascertain.
