In our last article we reviewed top app store rejection causes. Article received many good comments and was useful for many people, so we decided to continue our series of articles about App Store. And today we talk about such important and indispensable thing like - “Expedited Review”.

From time to time there are situations when you urgently need to reload your application in App Store or upload it as soon as possible.

Reasons for such actions may be different, for example, you released your application, it appeared in the appstore and suddenly you discover critical bug that blocks the work of your application, or your application is timed to some event and you need upload it before event start.

For such situations in the appstore is a function called “Expedited Review”. It allows you to pass app review in the shortest possible time from several hours to a couple of days.

Our personal record is 2.5 hours.
