    If I submit an application that only contains graphics for non-retina displays, will Apple reject it?

    I found a couple media reports that say the answer is "Yes", but I read the HIG and the use of the word "should" is confusing. Here's what it says (emphasis mine):

    Apple's use here of the word "should" seems to imply that use of retina graphics isn't necessarily required (though it is, at the very least, certainly encouraged)

    You must provide graphics that are for the model you intend to support.

    Now if you mean things like buttons and images the answer is no, but the screen shots and start-up screens must be appropriate for the iOS version and device you intend for the app to run on.
