Apple Now Lets Developers Set Age Ranges For Kids Apps

Richard Harris Richard Harris in iOS Friday, August 16, 2013

At WWDC this year Apple introduced a new category "Kids" in it's app store. Now developers can also narrow down what the target age of their app is for.

The following age ranges are available:

Ages 5 & under
Ages 6–8
Ages 9–11

You can only choose one age range for each app. Apps approved for the Kids category will still have a primary and secondary category, but will also appear in a new, separate area of the App Store. To assign the Kids category to an already existing app, submit a new version of your app for review.
