No app can enter the App Store without a real person checking it. This may seem like a serious waste of time, but Apple doesn’t have enough time to test more than 2 million apps in the App Store, approving or blocking a normal app in 5 to 10 minutes.
Hundreds of apps are installed every day in the App Store, Apple’s app market. Every app installed must be checked by an Apple employee. According to CNBC, Apple has the potential to add 50 to 100 apps to the App Store every day.
Apps uploaded to the App Store automatically go through a computer filter first. At this stage, 40% of applications are blocked. Most obstacles are caused by serious security gaps. Apple sees vulnerabilities as fraud attempts and automatically blocks applications. If developers solve and re-install errors in the app, the App Store releases the app.
Apple establishes a California-based department and operates 300 App Store controllers in this department. The department has recently opened offices in countries such as Ireland and China. App Store controllers are tasked with reviewing applications produced for software such as iOS, watchOS, tvOS and macOS.
