After a tiring days and sleepless nights, busy weekends and thoughtful breaks, getting rejection from AppStore is worst; No one wants to see a red label, against his/her app over itunes, saying rejected; There could be many reasons, really they are MANY, 100 plus, and any single of them can ruined your efforts and excitement within a second;

No doubt we all take care of some common points that may lead to app rejection, like purchase transaction out side the Apple’s platform, icon/splash image with proper dimensions etc, but again there are many others too that can be surly neglected without going through the list of possible rejection reasons; Before approaching to AppStore, one responsible authority from development squad (your QA guy, technical lead) should carefully revise each aspect that can stop your app to reach millons of iOS users;
