Apple Now Allows Unlisted Apps

Which Helps AHT Atsap


Apple has begun allowing unlisted software to be available on the App Store.


This is big news for us here at Atsap.


In short, this means that our clients who want to use their software for in-house purposes and not list their application publicly can now do so.





This is a substantial change and reflects positively on Apple and their executives.


"Unlisted apps don’t appear in any App Store categories, recommendations, charts, search results, or other listings," Apple says in a page on its developer website spotted by MacRumors. "They can also be accessed through Apple Business Manager and Apple School Manager."


Now, it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Apple does make clear that developers who have interest in listing private apps must go through an application process. How rigorous is this? We don’t quite know just yet.





While unlisted apps aren’t discoverable by the public through search results, App Store categories, charts, or recommendations, they’re available to administrators via the Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager.


This addition from Apple opens a world of possibilities for software geeks who cater to creating applications for a niche company or specific event (Like we do here at Atsap). Whereas before it was not possible on the app store, it now is.





Perhaps soon, granted a perspective client’s permission, we will show you the steps that Atsap takes to deliver a pristine app to one of the companies we help out… now with the aid from the fine people @ Apple.


Atsap's CEO told me he wanted me to focus on writing slightly longer blog posts from now on. But I can’t think of much more to write on this topic.


It is exciting, though.
