Correction needed to the lesson?

Apparaître follows the same pattern as connaître for the passé composé, (aître -> u), so not an exception. See -  https://conjugator.reverso.net/conjugation-rules-model-french/model-conna%C3%AEtre.html


EXCEPTIONS : 

- apparaître (to appear, come to be) and derivatives

Bonne Continuation!

Bonjour David !

Indeed, here the "exception" with apparaître is that it's using être as an auxiliary verb in compound tenses (not avoir), but I understand your (and clearly others') confusion here, so I've rephrased the lesson to clarify this point.

Merci à tous et bonne journée !
