ios must - iPad Multitasking support requires these orientations

4 Answers

iPad Multitasking support requires all the orientations but your app does not, so you need to opt out of it, just add the UIRequiresFullScreen key to your Xcode project’s Info.plist file and apply the Boolean value YES.

info off

I'm trying to submit my universal iOS 9 app to Apple (built with Xcode 7 GM) but I receive this error message for the bundle in iTunes Connect, just when I select Submit for Review:

Invalid Bundle. iPad Multitasking support requires these orientations: 'UIInterfaceOrientationPortrait,UIInterfaceOrientationPortraitUpsideDown,UIInterfaceOrientationLandscapeLeft,UIInterfaceOrientationLandscapeRight'. Found 'UIInterfaceOrientationPortrait,UIInterfaceOrientationPortraitUpsideDown' in bundle 'com.bitscoffee.PhotoMarks.iOS'.

My app has support for Portrait and PortraitUpsideDown orientations but not for the other two.

So is there a work around this imposed requirement, or all iOS 9 iPad apps have to have all four orientations?

I am using Xamarin and there is no available option in the UI to specify "Requires full screen". I, therefore, had to follow @Michael Wang's answer with a slight modification. Here goes:

Open the info.plist file in a text editor and add the lines:


I tried setting the value to "YES" but it didn't work, which was kind of expected.

In case you are wondering, I placed the above lines below the UISupportedInterfaceOrientations section


Hope this helps someone. Credit to Michael.

Unchecked all Device orientation and checked only "Requires full screen". Its working properly

As Michael said check the "Requires Full Screen" checkbox under General > Targets

and also delete the 'CFBundleIcons-ipad' from the info.plst

This worked for me
