Free provisioning/testing on your device:• From within Xcode 7.x or higher (Mac only), navigate to “Xcode—->Preferences—->Accounts.” Hit the '+' icon below left to add your Apple ID*. After you add your account, it will show within the main account window on the right.
• Select your account, hit the “View Details” button and wait for them to load.
• Now create the 'signing identity' used to create a provisioning profile used for device testing - Hit the “Create” button next to the 'iOS development' label. When completed, hit ‘Done’.
• Connect your device and select it as build destination via the 'active scheme' dropdown to the right of the play and stop icons.
• In target's 'General' tab/settings:• a. Set app identifier you want for your free profile
• b. Set team id as your apple id
• c. Hit 'Fix Issue' button below the provisioning profile warning
- You may have to ‘Fix Issue' more than once - keep at it so Xcode can step thru them as needed.
• Run your app with your device selected.**
Free provisioning notes/secrets/things you’ll want to know:- The profile will be valid for 1 week, after which time you will need to recreate a new one (repeat the same process).
- There is a limit to how many apps you can build and test to your device.
- Maximum number of devices limit is reported as 3.
- What you can/can't do w/free provisioning is listed here:
- If this is about creating an .ipa to manually hand off, select Build For Archiving under the project menu, not ‘Run’.
- *If you have, or plan to have, a paid developer account, be sure to use a unique/different apple ID for each account.
- **Free accounts may experience issues launching apps on the watch for the first time.
Workaround: Launch the app manually on the device and click “Trust” when the security sheet appears. You should then be able to launch the app from Xcode.
Hi. I am developing on Windows using Phonegap Build (which won't compile an Apple version without the certificate), so I can't follow those directions you gave. Do you know how to get the free certificate under those circumstances? I tried to follow these directions... https://www.iandevlin.com/blog/2012/11/phonegap/building-an-ios-signing-key-for-phonegap-i n-windows however when it says "Now you need to go to your Apple Developer iOS Provisioning Portal in order to generate an iOS Development Certificate,.....Click on “Certificates” in the left hand side, and then “Request"...”, there ISN'T a "Certificates" on the left hand side of my screen to click on (several other options on the left side of the screen, but not "Certificates". Thought it might be buried in "Documention", but couldn't find it there), so I'm confused as to how to get the certificate using Windows as that link appears to be out of date now.
I am trying to obtain a free developer enrollment for a class project I am late for. My current paid enrollment is expired and prompts me to renew, which I don't want to do right now. I am saving for when I really will need it. Now I have heard a solution is to make a new developer account, but I really don't want to do this, because of email, credit card, iTunes, etc. connections. Anybody know how to switch? Side note: will this cause problems to the paid enrollment?
>will this cause problems to the paid enrollment?
It will if you try to use the same apple id - see the notes above.
If you have further questions, pls. start you own thread rather than tagging onto someone else's, thanks.
"- The profile will be valid for 1 week, after which time you will need to recreate a new one."
How do you recreate a new one after the profile expires?
>How do you recreate a new one after the profile expires?
Simply repeat the same process as the first time. See above for details.
Is it possible to extend this 1 week certificate or an other possibility to instal definitively my app on my iphone (free)?
If I pay de 99$ , I need to pay each year to hold my app aviable?
> other possibility to instal definitively my app on my iphone (free)?
No. You have to repeat the process and create a new profile.
> I need to pay each year to hold my app aviable?
Is there a way to get a Developer ID Application certificate with this method?
Quoting the dev id page: https://developer.apple.com/support/developer-id/
Preparing Developer ID Apps
To distribute your Mac apps with Developer ID, you will need to be a member of the Apple Developer Program or Apple Developer Enterprise Program, obtain a Developer ID certificate, and create a Developer ID provisioning profile for apps using advanced capabilities such as CloudKit.

I'm not a computer scientist I considered myself , average I make my free development pogrom almost by a mistake I found out I was free developer because I cut install all the apps I want too using impactor . I have used my 100 apps. And I hope I can get a year more. Hope that you all will manage. Its great too bee a free developer I can use Xcode swift. I have played a little with swift.

Test application need to use the iOS test certificate, if the development of iOS APP with phonegap no Mac computer, you can use the Appuploader tool, you can directly apply to the Windows system iOS certificate and upload IPA to the App Store
