This guide looks very long at first glance, but that's just because every step is explained in detail with an image. It shouldn't take too long to complete!

Now that you've created your app with webtoapp.design you need a developer account for the Google PlayStore and/or Apple App Store to publish it. In this guide, I'll show you how to easily get the Apple developer account and grant our team access to it, so we can upload your app.

Apple Developer Program - For Publishing iOS Apps in the App Store

Creating the Account

To get started, simply visit the signup page here:

https://developer.apple.com/programs/enroll/

Start the process by clicking 'Start Your Enrollment' at the bottom of the page. After that you'll be asked to log into your Apple ID unless you've already done so. If you don't have one yet, create one now.

It's important that you enable 2 factor authentication for your Apple ID, otherwise you won't be able to enroll in the developer program. Usually you can enable it right away when creating your Apple ID. For further information on 2 factor authentication for your Apple ID, check out Apple's guide on it here. If you're having trouble setting up 2 factor authentication, the Apple support team can also help you with it.

Once you're done with that, make sure you enroll into the developer program as an organization, because later on you will have to add our team as developers, which can only be done in organization accounts!

After that, the process to creating your account should be pretty straight forward. If you need help, just reach out to us or the Apple support team and we will be glad to help.

Hi, I'm Jan. I have previously developed multiple apps for clients and my own projects, which have been downloaded thousands of times in the app stores. However, I decided I'd rather help out people with smaller budgets. That's why I created webtoapp.design, an affordable way to get an app if you already have a website.
