All apps uploaded to App Store must be built with the iOS 12.1 SDK or later. The earliest version of Xcode that supports the 12.1 SDK is 10.1.

Thanks a lot for you guys, Thats true i figureout that any app from march,2019 must be built in sdk 12.1 or later and ofcurse using xcode 10.1 or later , But guys, that means the #MinVersion should be 12.1 is it true or not.

I don't use B4i but in B4A #Minversion is the earliest version of Android the app supports, so I assume it's the same in B4i. If you set it to 12.1 your app will only run on devices running iOS 12.1 & later. I generally support iOS 8.x & up, but it depends on what features are in your app & what is the earliest SDK they are supported in.

Note that the Xcode version & #Minversion aren't related. You can build an app using the 12.1 SDK, but it can still run on devices running earlier versions of iOS, depending on what you set #Minversion to.

Thanks a lot Colin for the information it's really helpful for me, I want to mention that I tested my app on xcode simulator running ios 9.3 and my app did not work, It's crashes when I try to open it, Thats what made me think I should put #MinVersion to 12.1 .

If you put #Minversion 12.1 then it definitely won't run on an iOS 9.3 device. Try creating a new thread with details of the crash & the error message(s) you're seeing & somebody might be able to help you solve it.

Yeah - I figured that. Just saying that if you do change #Minversion to 12.1, it won't run. You're probably OK with setting the #Minversion to 9.0 because there are very few devices still running anything older than that -> https://david-smith.org/iosversionstats/
