sorry to trouble with a question that might be trivial but I do not know which way to head.
I created an app with ionic and sent to the Apple Store as I have done many times, but for 3 times was rejected.
The reason is that it breaks the rule PLA 3.3.12 or the presence of an identifier for advertising purposes without the use of this feature.
The exact message of the store:
> Hello, > Thank you for your resubmission. We noticed that your app is still not in compliance with our guideline. > We are unable to proceed with the review of you app until this issue has been addressed. > PLA 3.3.12 > We > found that your app uses the iOS Advertising Identifier but does not > include ad functionality.

Obviously I have tried many times in the code but I have found no trace of anything and this app has no plugin advertising!
This is the plugin list:
> cordova-plugin-geolocation 1.0.1 "Geolocation" > cordova-plugin-inappbrowser 1.0.1 "InAppBrowser" > cordova-plugin-statusbar 1.0.1 "StatusBar" > nl.x-services.plugins.socialsharing 4.3.19-dev "SocialSharing" > org.apache.cordova.console 0.2.13 "Console" > org.apache.cordova.device 0.3.0 "Device"
this is version of platform
> Cordova CLI: 5.1.1 > Gulp version: CLI version 3.9.0 > Gulp local: Local version 3.8.11 > Ionic Version: 1.0.0-rc.0 > Ionic CLI Version: 1.6.4 > Ionic App Lib Version: 0.3.8 > ios-deploy version: 1.7.0 > ios-sim version: 3.1.1 > OS: Mac OS X Yosemite > Node Version: v0.12.7 > Xcode version: Xcode 6.4 Build version 6E35b
thanks so much for everything
