Apple Will Not Accept App Submissions From December 23 to 27

The end of each year sees Apple stop reviewing app and update submissions for around a week in late December. However, as How-To Geek reminds us, that doesn't mean either of Apple's app stores aren't filled with garbage.

The BBB says hundreds of fake retail and product apps have begun appearing over the past few weeks.

Entering credit card information in a fake app opens consumers to potential financial fraud.

"Cyber-thieves have also found ways to make their counterfeit apps convenient; they encourage users to log in using their Facebook credentials", Horton said.

Because numerous apps look authentic, the BBB is advising shoppers to take cautionary steps when purchasing goods through smartphone apps.

"If there is just one review for a major retailer, it's a fake app", Bernas said.

-Never click on a link in any email to download a new app.

The Better Business Bureau has reported hundreds of incidents of fraudulent smartphone apps created to look like official versions for popular retail outlets such as Foot Locker, Dollar Tree, Dior and Nordstrom.

-Check ask.bbb.org for additional scam information and also safe online shopping. App Store revenues rose 43%, while Apple Music revenues rose 22% in the last quarter on a YoY basis.
