App Store Promo Codes - What happens if one is used after a new version is released?

For example, if I give out promo codes for app version 1.4. And then I release 1.41. Would the version codes for v 1.4 still be usable?

  • I believe promo codes can only be redeemed for specific version. I don't have anything specific from Apple to point to as the official policy but I remember when I offered codes last year that this was correct (that's why I'm not adding this as an answer yet).

Once you release an app update, all previous promo codes become invalid and promo codes cannot be used. They also expire four weeks from the day they’re generated.

  • wow that's terribly inconvenient. what if you release an app update for bug reasons or something after giving promo codes out?
