Juli Clover, reporting for Mac Rumors:
Apple today announced on its Developer Portal that screenshots
added to app descriptions will be locked in place once an app has
been approved. […] This small but important update shuts down a
widely used scam tactic, where developers would upload game
screenshots to get an app approved by Apple and then switch them
out with screenshots from another popular app.
Panic detailed one of these scam apps a few weeks ago. Worth noting, though, that this change is a pain in the ass for legitimate developers — any change to your app’s screenshots now requires a full submission/review process.
