Build app using free provisioning [iOS]

Is it possible to launch a build created using free provisioning profile on other device ?

Answer

Yes it is, the limitations are the following:

Apple has imposed a number of limitations on when and how you can use free provisioning to run your application on an iOS device, ensuring that you can only deploy to your device. These are listed in this section.

Access to iTunes Connect is also limited and therefore services such as publishing to the App Store and TestFlight are unavailable to developers provisioning their applications freely. An Apple Developer Account (Enterprise or Personal) is required to distribute via Ad Hoc and In-House means.

Provisioning Profiles created in this way will expire after one week, Signing Identities after one year. Furthermore, provisioning profiles will only be created with explicit App IDs and so you will need to follow the instructions above for every app that you wish to install.

Provisioning for most application services is also not possible with free provisioning. This includes:

  • List item
  • Apple Pay
  • Game Center
  • iCloud
  • In-App Purchasing
  • Push Notifications
  • Wallet (Was Passbook)
