[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

    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.

    So, which version should I use? (I use currently 2019.2.x)

    I think any tickets should be resolved after the fix was released.

    This was being tested during 2018.4.9f1 (LTS), so normally it should be delivered in 2019.4.10f1 (which is not launched yet, according to Unity Hub).

    Status: Fixed in 2018.4, 2019.2, 2019.3
    I assume, the Fix will be in 2018.4.10f1, can you tell us when this version/these versions will be released?

    The 2018.4.9f1 still have this issue...
    The "Fixed in 2018.4" is referring to which subversion?
    We urgently need to fix this issue on our submissions to the App Store.
    Thank you

    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?
