As we all know, when developing Apple applications, you need to use a signature (certificate) to package and install Apple
IPA, as a student who has just come into contact with ios development, is only learning the internal test of ios app development, and it is not on the shelves.
Appstore needs, it is really a great waste to pay 688 for Apple developer account authentication.
With appuploader, you only need to register an ordinary Apple account, without 688 authentication, you can package your own
I have developed an ios application and tested it on my own real machine. The following is a detailed tutorial:
Step 1: Register an Apple developer account Visit the following website and follow the prompts to register, because no support is required
Pay 688 to authenticate Apple developers, so there is nothing to say.
Registered address: Apple Developerhttps://developer.apple.com/cn/
Step 2: Download APP UploaderDownload address: Appuploader official website–IOS ipa upload and release
Tool, certificate creation tool cross-platform version, windows, linux, mac systems are available

Description file: This file mainly contains certificates, public keys, device information, etc., and is bound to the app.
Test equipment: mainly enter the ios mobile phone to be tested, mainly udid, udid can be understood as the device
A unique identification code, the acquisition of the udid of the iphone, you can install the driver through the appuploader
The tool automatically obtains other functional modules, which I have not used. For details, please refer to the help documentation of the tool software.
