Deprecated API Usage - Apple no longer accepts submissions of apps that use QuickTime or QTKit APIs.

Hi there,

I'm trying to upload my macOS app to AppStore today but after successfully uploaded .pkg file using Application Loader to AppStore i've got below error message via email from Apple Support:

"Deprecated API Usage - Apple no longer accepts submissions of apps that use QuickTime or QTKit APIs."

I've tried to find out any possible thing by which i can find some reference of the mentioned APIs but had no luck. I have no clue why i'm getting this failure.

Project target framework: Xamarin.Mac Full.

I've tried few mmp arguments as well but no luck such as: "--registrar:dynamic" or "--linkplatform".

I'm now using mmp argument "--optimize=-trim-architectures" with Lipo solution to remove 32-bit architecture error from the project.

Searched for the same topic and found few of them but they didn't work for my app.

Please suggest me how may i remove this warning from my project. Please let me know if any further input is required from my side.

Thank you.

    So using --linkplatform should work with Release builds.

    Please post your version of Xcode \ XM and preferably a full build log as well.

    I'm also attaching full build log of release mode after setting mmp arguments as "--linkplatform" and it's clearly showing 1 error like:

    MMP : error MM2002: Failed to resolve assembly: 'Org.Mentalis.Security.Cryptography, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=2780ccd10d57b246'

    Thanks for your help.

    I'm having some difficulty tracking your issue, you said you tried --linkplatform but your log shows that build is a failure. That build shows a Org.Mentalis.Security.Cryptography library that some dependency of yours is depending upon that is not being included.

    For any form of linking to work, even the limited platform linking, you need to have all dependencies available for scanning. You need to fix your dependency graph to either include that assembly or fix the consumer to no longer link against it. This part is not a bug in Xamarin.Mac.

    Enabling the dynamic registrar at one point was also a valid work around for mac store submissions, I'm not sure why that didn't work for you.
