[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.

    2020.1 is too far away for this fix to be implemented, this needs to be addressed in LTS and preferably 2019.2
