        Dear all,

         

        I have just purchased my Apple Developer Membership for the first time (as I need CloudKit) and, suddenly, I cannot build my apps on my real devices anymore.

         

        I hit Cmd-R and I get the usual message "Go to Settings > General > Device management" to trust my device but, sadly, now there is no such option anymore on my iPhone as I used to have with the FREE membership...

        What has happened?

        How do I get out of this?

         

        I didnt really expect paying the "Pro" membership meant that I was locked out of my devices for development ...

         

        Thank you for your help.

                Ouch.

                 

                Did you follow that link for an explanation of the situation you now find yourself in?

                    I now read it and I actually had a developer free account before so I guess I was not developing under "free provisioning".

                    Anyway, I performed something that may have "temporarily" solved it: I went into Xcode > Preferences > Accounts > Manage Certificates and requested a new iOS Development certificate.

                    After doing that my app built regularly on my iPhone.

                    Was that the procedure? Am I now fine to go?

                    I didnt receive any instruction that I should have done so thus I followed my instinct.

                     

                    Thank you for your help.

                        Actually, you were....those are the same thing.

                        My recommendation is to -not- use the same Apple ID for free vs. paid.

                         

                        Good luck.

                            Thank you!

                            When I first started to practice programming I simply registered a developer account with my AppleID and kept it free while I was learning the very basics.

                             

                            Today I went there and followed the instructions to upgrade my account.

                            There was no suggestion on Apple's developer portal to do anything different, how could I have known?

                             

                            Now the deed is done and I have paid one year of membership upgrading my free account to paid one and that caused that issue.

                            Should I contact Apple about this?

                            Anything else?

                            Thank you for your help!

                                Which is why I documented the process some time ago - you're not the first to step in it. Now you know.  Remember, Apple tends to document what you can do, not what you can't.

                                If you have issues, yes - they are the only ones that can undo any knots that may arise from tangled accounts.

                                 

                                Sorry I couldn't help more.
