[iOS] Apple throws Deprecated API Usage warning for using UIWebView when submitting Builds to the App Store Connect



After submitting Unity-iOS builds to the App Store Connect Apple is showing Warning for using UIWebView:

Dear Developer,
We identified one or more issues with a recent delivery for your app, "XXXXX". Your delivery was successful, but you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery:
ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage - Apple will stop accepting submissions of apps that use UIWebView APIs . See for more information.
After you’ve corrected the issues, you can use Xcode or Application Loader to upload a new binary to App Store Connect.

This case doesn't need a reproduction project, the problem is that we're creating an instance of UIWebView at PlatformDependent/iPhonePlayer/ to handle in-game links, but the UIWebView will be no longer supported by Apple and will be a cause for apps rejection in the App Store Connect

Reproduced on Unity 2017.4.32f1, 2018.4.8f1, 2019.2.4f1, 2019.3.0b2 and 2020.1.0a2

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2020.1):

    Please note that you will get the error if you are using a Unity Ads package older or equal to 3.2. This was fixed with Ads 3.3.0.

    Where can I download the fixed versions? On the download page, the latest 2018 version is 2018.4.9f1 (which doesn't have the UIWebView fix). Is there another place I can download it?
