If you've registered an Apple developer account as an individual (and not an organization with a DUNS number), you will need to complete some extra steps to allow us to publish your app on your developer account.

Creating an App Identifier

Open the Apple developer page for identifiers.

Click the plus button to add a new app identifier.

Enter your package name as bundle id.

Scroll down and tick the 'Push Notifications' checkbox.

Click the 'Continue' button at the top right.

Click the 'Register' button at the top right.

Push Notification Certificate

Even if your app doesn't have push notifications enabled at the moment, we need a push notification certificate. This also allows us to enable push notifications for you later on if you want to do so.

Open the Apple developer page for keys.

Click the plus button.

Click the plus button.

Enter 'Push Notifications *Your App Name*' as the key's name.

Click the 'Apple Push Notifications service (APNs)' checkbox.

Click the 'Continue' button at the top right.

Click the 'Register' button at the top right.

Download the key file and send it to me via email: janImagine Scr@ping@webtoapp.design

Click the 'Done' button.
