Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a mobile provisioning profile, part of Creating an iPad App with HTML5 and PhoneGap Build.
Now we need to create a Provisioning Profile.…What we're going to do first inside of the Apple…Developer Center is let's come down and click on Devices.…We need to add our device to our account.…Now under Devices, if you don't already have your iPad registered, let's…come over here and click on the Plus sign to add a device.…Let's scroll down.…First under Name you want to name your device.…I'm going to name mine Chris' iPad 2.…Next under the UDID, you can get this by plugging your iPad into iTunes.…In the iTunes sidebar make sure you select your iPad.…
Now next to the iPad icon, you'll see some information about the iPad.…You'll also see a serial number.…To get the UDID that identifies your…particular device, you can hold the Command…key, click on the serial number, and this will change to become the UDID.…When the UDID is showing, you can go to the Edit menu and…choose Copy. That'll copy your UDID to the clipboard.…Then we come back to the Apple Developer website.…Paste in the UDID. Then scroll down.…Click Continue.…
