Apple starts rejecting some apps early

The Apple iPhone and iPad each have a unique UDID number that is specific to that single device. There are a number of apps on the market that access that alphanumeric UDID number allowing developers to identify each individual iPhone or iPad. Apple had previously warned that it was going to depreciate the UDID and the developers needed to start looking for workarounds.

Apparently the recent furor over privacy in Washington and in the press has pushed Apple to start before developers expect. Reports are coming in that Apple has been rejecting any app submitted for approval to the App Store that accesses the UDID information.
