We recently noticed, through our App Store Connect Sales and Trends page, that our iOS app has some confusing statistics. Our app shows that we have Desktop devices in our metrics.
Although iOS apps can now be made to run on macOS, we have explicitly declined/disabled that feature (at least we think we did...) for now both in the Xcode build and in the App Store Connect availability.
The phrasing is a little confusing to me. The checkbox mentions Silicon/M1 devices explicitly, but I thought Desktop compatibility applied to (potentially) any macOS device on Big Sur. Either way, it's unchecked!
Further, none of the App Store Connect analytics seem to show that we have Desktop device entries for our users/units. Only the "Sales and Trends" page shows any Desktop data.
This is befuddling. How could a Desktop analytic event have gotten in there? I'm willing to accept it's some weird fluke, but also want to make sure we're not missing something and a certain subset of macOS users are somehow able to run our iOS app.
