iOS Apple June 30th Deadline for iOS 13 SDK?

I have three questions for this:

1) Does this mean you are required to update all your apps to be iOS 13 SDK compliant or they will remove off them off app store?

2) Is the latest GMS 2.x compliant for this?

3) If so, does GMS 2.x use this... Xcode storyboard to provide the apps launch screen?

Apple had originally set a deadline of April 30 for requiring apps for iPhone and iPad be built with the iOS 13 SDK. In a new developer blog post today, however, Apple has extended that deadline and many others.

In order to “accommodate developers who may need additional time to update their existing apps on the App Store,” Apple has extended the April 30 deadline until June 30. What this means is that developers now have until June 30, 2020 to meet the following requirements for app updates:

Apps for iPhone or iPad must be built with the iOS 13 SDK or later and use an Xcode storyboard to provide the app’s launch screen.
iPhone apps must support all iPhone screens and all iPad apps must support all iPad screens.

I have had reports of people using the newest iPad Pro 11 2020 saying that the app will not go fullscreen, the status bar is always visible. I am guesisng it is related to game make not using ios 13 yet?
