Rejected due to CallKit functionality

Is CometChat using CallKit? I just submitted the app to the App Store and was rejected by the reviewer stating the following below.

Can you give us any advice on how we can disable CallKit if it is being used.

Guideline 5.0 - Legal

Recently, the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) requested that CallKit functionality be deactivated in all apps available on the China App Store.

During our review, we found that your app currently includes CallKit functionality and has China listed as an available territory in App Store Connect.

Next Steps

This app cannot be approved with CallKit functionality active in China. Please make the appropriate changes and resubmit this app for review.

If you have already ensured that CallKit functionality is not active in China, you may reply to this message in Resolution Center to confirm.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) call functionality continues to be allowed but can no longer take advantage of CallKit’s intuitive look and feel. CallKit can continue to be used in apps outside of China.


Yes, CometChat does have callKit in its dependencies. Please make appropriate changes by disabling china. Please do let us know if you still have any queries we would love to help you out


Thanks @nishant.tiwari. We made it unavailable to China Mainland and was approved.
