Quick question about submission and download codes.

Hello all, I am close to submitting my game to apple as this is my final month of time before I loose my game name on the app store (I already had my 1 time extension) but I have a quick question.

When I submit my game the release date will not be planned until the end of summer, but would I be able to give people a download code even though the game is held back from going live to everyone on the store?

The game needs one big update before I feel that it's ready to roll which is why I want to delay it's launch date.

Once approved by Apple your app will be waiting for your approval to launch, should you set the date to some after the date it gets approved.

When in this state users can still redeem promo codes which you can generate and distribute. You get 50 promo codes per version of your app.
