Starting February 1, 2015, AppStore submissions must be built with Xcode 6, arm64 and iOS 8

Apple Developer news posted this:

Starting February 1, 2015, new iOS apps uploaded to the App Store must include 64-bit support and be built with the iOS 8 SDK, included in Xcode 6 or later. To enable 64-bit in your project, we recommend using the default Xcode build setting of “Standard architectures” to build a single binary with both 32-bit and 64-bit code.

So specifically requires arm64, iOS 8 SDK and built with Xcode 6

Note this is perfectly in time for oF 0.9.0 :smile: (Which has arm64, armv7, armv7s pre-compiled external dependancies as well as compiling the oF static library in those architectures XD)

I currently have a workable arm64 branch of master for those wanting to help test and debug for 0.9.0.

Hi @danoli3 do you know if I can submit a new app using iOS 7.1 ?

@cleliodpaula - If we restate it as the following, does it help?

All NEW applications submitted on and after 01 Feb 2015 must be arm64/iOS8+

Existing applications would be exempt.
