Just noticed that with Apple's latest update to iTunes Connect, there is a new section under "Pricing and Availability" called Bitcode Auto-Recompilation containing this message:

Occasionally, we may automatically recompile apps that include bitcode to improve hardware support or to optimize our software. The checkbox below allows you to disable auto-recompilation for your app.

What happens if you disable bitcode auto-recompilation?

  • Your app or a thinned version of your app may be unavailable for some devices.
  • Your app, and any app bundle that includes this app, may become unavailable whenever apps must be recompiled.
  • If your app is unavailable on the App Store, Universal Purchase, redownloads, and Family Sharing won't work unless all platform versions have been approved.

To maintain your app's availability on the App Store:

  • Upload a new build of your app that contains bitcode.
  • Test the new build with TestFlight (optional).
  • Submit that build with a new app version to App Review.

Reading further in their documentation about this, it says that bitcode is optional for iOS apps but required for Watch and TV apps.

Does anyone know if AIR includes bitcode in our apps?
