    Hi,

    In my app I want to add a logic such that each time when the app starts, I want to check whether whether a new version of app is available or not and if yes, I want to prompt the user, an alert view or something with a download button. How can I do it?

    I don't think Apple would like this. The App Store does this for you.

    Once you've gotten confirmation that your application is ready for sale, update a file on your server, have your app connect to it, compare the integer in the file with the version number in the Info.plist, and if it's different, show the alert.
