Creating And Managing App Bundles

What is an app bundle?

App bundles make it easy for you to group up to 10 of your iOS or macOS apps together in a single download. Apps in a bundle must be either all paid or all free. A paid app bundle can only include paid apps and must be offered at a reduced price. Each app in a free app bundle must be free and offer an auto-renewable subscription that allows the user to subscribe to and access content or services in all apps of the bundle. 

To learn how to create and submit app bundles to the App Store, see App Store Connect Help.

How many app bundles can I create?

You can create as many app bundles as you want, but you can only have up to 10 app bundles available on the App Store at any given time.

How many bundles can an app belong to?

An app can be in up to three app bundles available on the App Store at any given time.

Can I include apps from another developer in an app bundle?

No, you can only include apps associated with your own developer account.

Why is my app bundle not available on the App Store?

After you have submitted an app bundle for App Review and it has been approved, it will automatically become available for sale when all of the apps it contains are available and all other requirements are met.

In order to be available, app bundles must meet the following requirements:

  • Apps in the bundle must be either all paid or all free. A paid app bundle can only include paid apps and must be offered at a reduced price. Each app in a free app bundle must be free and offer at least one auto-renewable subscription.
  • Paid app bundles must be sold at a reduced price, which is a price tier less than the sum total of the individual app prices in the bundle.
  • A paid app bundle’s price must not be lower than the highest app price in the bundle. If an app in the bundle goes to a price that is higher than the price of the bundle, the bundle will automatically be removed from the store.
  • There are no bundle-specific territory settings. An app bundle will be live only where all member apps have common territories.
  • Only ten bundles can be marked as cleared for sale at any time per developer account. If you have ten bundles marked cleared for sale, you can create additional bundles, but you can’t check Cleared for Sale for an additional bundle unless you first uncheck it from another bundle.
  • A single app can be in no more than three cleared-for-sale bundles at one time.

How do I edit the app bundle information?

You can change the name, description, and marketing URL of an app bundle on App Store Connect. These changes must be approved by App Review. Learn more about how to edit app bundle information in App Store Connect Help.
Most other types of app bundle information, including screenshots, localizations, and so on, are automatically pulled from the information of individual apps in the bundle and cannot be edited.

Can I delete an app bundle?

No, app bundles can't be deleted.

Can I add or remove apps from an app bundle?

You can only add or remove apps from an app bundle before it has been approved by App Review. If your app bundle has already been approved, you must create a new app bundle.

Can I transfer an app that is in an app bundle?

Yes, you can transfer apps that are included in an app bundle. When you transfer an app included in an app bundle currently available on the App Store, the app bundle will be removed from the App Store.

You can then create a new app bundle that doesn’t include the transferred app.
