  • Hi,

    It it always good and I personally recommend to test on device as well as some issues can be found only on device but not on emulator. But Store approval team test them on devices and reject in case any that fails guidelines.

    Frankly speaking, I have submitted few apps without even testing on device and manged with emulator testing and they were approved as there was no functionality to test particularly on device.
