Apple today sent an email to registered developers asking them to choose a new age range for apps directed at children as part of a new Kids category that the company plans to introduce to the App Store with iOS 7. Available age ranges are 5 and under, 6-8, and 9-11, with each app only able to be assigned to a single category at a time.
- 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. Starting this fall, the currently existing Kids subcategory for game apps will no longer be displayed on the App Store.
iOS 7, with the new Kids Category, is expected to be released in the fall with an announcement coming as early as September 10.
