Beginning 1st January 2017; Apple is requiring all apps to communicate via secure SSL connections and HTTPS transport layer. These new requirements are called App Transport Security, or ATS. For more information, see TechCrunch.
All new and revised apps submitted to Apple for approval beyond this date will need to be ATS-compliant. To be ATS-Complaint, a site must use an SSL Certificate and communicate via HTTPS.
If you don’t want to deal with the process of installing SSL for your app compliance, let our team of dedicated developers do the hard work for you! AppStoreUpload preferred partner is GeoTrust

It’s simple, the Alexa Top 1 Million Domains list continues to illustrate that GeoTrust SSL Certificates secure more of the most-visited web sites on the Internet than any other Certificate Authority (CA). The Alexa 1 Million is a well-known site traffic measurement service that lists the million most visited sites, ranked by order of popularity. In preparing the Alexa Netcraft Index, Catapult Data Services cross-references these industry data sets to obtain an accurate picture of SSL certificate usage on web sites that matter most. This illustrates GeoTrust as the most widely recognised leader in the premium SSL certificate and online trust categories!
How does True BusinessID + EV work?
EV SSL guards, via encryption, the information on its way between the browser and its final destination – the server. What is more – the EV SSL is the only certificate ensuring that the final destination itself is secure too. We trust the green bar not only because of its reassuring color, but also because it contains Official Company information verified by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA). In seconds, it indicates that a domain is owned and a website is operated by a legitimate organisation. It gets even more reassuring – credentials are rigorously scrutinised personally, to the highest standards, by an authorised independent GeoTrust professional.
