Solution – Requests to /.well-known/apple-app-site-association

As I’ve been monitoring my incoming requests, I’ve noticed that there has been a huge number of requests to my website related to the page /.well-known/apple-app-site-association.

Doing some research, I found that this has to do with the way Apple devices handles a concept they call “Universal Links“. The file itself acts as a configuration for how to handle a user when visiting your website from Safari or any other UIWebView. It can be used to associate opening up your application rather than having the user visit a web page.
