Oh yes!! Even while I (or cocos2d for that matter) made a small mistake on the UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities Info.plist variable, known issue: 769
http://code.google.com/p/cocos2d-iphone/issues/detail?id=769 in cocos2d  0.99
I had the same issue/made the same mistake and also got rejected by Apple because of this: “Only specify the required hardware functions don’t mention the ones that aren’t required by your app.”



The UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities variable is interpreted by Apple and prevents people from purchasing/downloading software on their device, which their hardware does not support.

For instance a navigation app for the iphone 2g (which doesn’t sport a GPS system) would be impossible to install if the gps key was set to true.

My info.plist key looked like this:

<key>UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities</key>
<dict>
<key>accelerometer</key>
<true/>
<key>armv6</key>
<false/>
<key>armv7</key>
<false/>
<key>auto-focus-camera</key>
<false/>
<key>gps</key>
<false/>
<key>location-services</key>
<false/>
<key>magnetometer</key>
<false/>
<key>microphone</key>
<false/>
<key>opengles-1</key>
<true/>
<key>opengles-2</key>
<false/>
<key>peer-peer</key>
<false/>
<key>sms</key>
<false/>
<key>still-camera</key>
<false/>
<key>telephony</key>
<false/>
<key>video-camera</key>
<false/>
<key>wifi</key>
<false/>
</dict>

After fixing it it looked like this (for my app):

<key>UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities</key>
<dict>
<key>accelerometer</key>
<true/>
<key>opengles-1</key>
<true/>
</dict>

Apple told me that my BeetleBeat app required hardware specs that were not met in a single device, so my app was basically uninstallable. So all the false valued keys were removed,  a new binary was submitted and I must say that Apple gave me a royal treatment by approving my fixed app real quick after I uploaded the new binary.
