In order to get your app into the hands of others, you'll first need to upload it to Apple's servers, so your builds are accessible in iTunes Connect. See how to do that in this training video.
- [Instructor] So now that we have an application,…we have a launch screen, we have an icon,…we've set up the provisioning profile,…we set up the app in iTunes Connect,…we've matched the ID of our app in Xcode…to the app that we've set up both…in the developer portal and in iTunes Connect…and we've connected our provisioning profile…to our application, we are now ready…to upload the application to Apple's servers.…Before we can do that, make sure you click on…where it says the simulator that you're using,…so I had iPhone SE before,…you want to change this to Generic iOS Device,…and that's important because if we don't change that…and we have it on the simulator,…then we can't send the app to Apple for testing.…
So we have it as Generic iOS Device,…and then go to Product, and then Archive.…What this does is it creates an archive of your application.…This usually takes a while.…On my machine it takes a couple of minutes.…Once that's done, you need to walk through the process…to upload your app to Apple's servers.…
