HowTo upload APP to APP Store ?


  • Qt Champions 2016

    So I have finished development of QtCon Conference App :)
    Now want to upload to iTunes Connect.
    Have created a Record for the APP and want to start beta Testing.
    (On Google Play all works well and Beta testing started)

    But now I'm confused HowTo upload the iOS APP.
    Release is successfully build and I can deploy to iPhone.

    Please can someone give me some hints what to do now.
    I also dobleclicked the generated Xcode project, but have no idea HowTo upload from there

    thx

    got a hint in stackoverflow

    I had to goto Product --> Archive
    Then the build will be archived and then I can select
    upload to iTunes Connect

    now some errors ... have to explore

    aaah

    I had to add the Team in XCode
    then I had to change the Devices from Universal to iPhone

    then again Product -> Archive
    now I could upload :)

    Hi,

    Out of curiosity, why did you need to limit the devices to iPhone only ?


  • Qt Champions 2016

    for iPad I have to redesign some screens
    QtQuickControls are perfect to HighDPI on smartphones, but you must tune UI for iPads
    Hopefully for QtWorldSummit APP I'll have this done

    Ok

    In any case, you can also limit the device type in your .pro file using QMAKE_IOS_TARGETED_DEVICE_FAMILY so you don't need to fiddle that part with Xcode.

    using QMAKE_IOS_TARGETED_DEVICE_FAMILY solves it all. Now I only had to do 'Product - Archive' :)

    Nice ! :)



  • Did you need to register with Apple and pay the developer fee? Do you have to send you application to Apple before it can be uploaded?

    Where can I find this kind of thing out as I want to develop Qt applications for iPad.

    Hi, @SPlatten

    Yes, you have to register as a developer with Apple however only when you want to publish your application. Currently, there's no need to be part of the developer program anymore to test your application on a real device.

    The simple way to upload applications for publishing is done using Xcode.

    For more information, you should consult Apple's documentation.

    With the caveat AFAIK that the app runs only for a limited lifetime on the device.

    @raven-worx What do you mean by "run with limited lifetime" ?

    @SGaist
    hmm..i was pretty sure i've read this in an article.
    When i'll find it again i will post it here, until then you can discard this false information.



  • Thank you, I will look into this further,
