Tried to publish a social networking app via App Store Connect. It was rejected for the reasons given below. The first issue is moot. The system has a blocking function. The other issues are beyond my scope of abilities. Any thoughts or suggestions?
- 2 Safety: User Generated Content

We noticed that your app requests the user’s consent to access the camera, but doesn’t sufficiently explain the use of the camera in the purpose string.
To help users make informed decisions about how their data is used, permission request alerts need to explain and include an example of how your app will use the requested information.
Please revise the purpose string in your app’s Info.plist file for the camera to explain why your app needs access and include an example of how the user’s data will be used.
You can modify your app’s Info.plist file using the property list editor in Xcode.

Please revise your app to offer Sign in with Apple as an equivalent option for account authentication.
Any help is appreciated!
