Sumbit iOS App to iTunes or Testfilght

  • Whats the trick? I have everything set up in the Apple Dev account and in iTunes Connect, etc

    The compiled app bundle is in the /Release-iphoneos folder

    When I try to upload, I get a dialog that states:

    Select an iOS version to test.

    Internal testers have access to the latest build for the selected version. They’ll also have access to any new builds that you upload for this version.
    Submit your builds using Xcode 6 or later, or Application Loader 3.0 or later.

    So is there a way to upload thru the Qt Creator IDE or do you have to start up XCode to do this.

    I have found nothing on the subject using the "search" function in the forums and cannot find anything in the Qt Documentation.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Well #@$%#$@^%$#.

    Researching to use XCode6 or ApplicationLoader3 and both require OS X version 10.9.3 (or later) or 10.10.

    This is a problem. I have OSX 10.8.5.

    I cannot update to a newer OS level because all the development support tools I currently use would need to be updated too. Some will not run on the newer OSes so I couldn't purchase the updates even if I wanted to.

    At this point I can create, build, and test on an actual iOS device, but cannot upload to TestFlight or for Review unless I totally break my development environment.

    Is there a workaround to the problem?

    AFAIK there's no way around. Apple always requires app developers to use the newest tools.
    You need Xcode 6 or later to upload to app store for Testflight
    Qt Creator creates the Xcode project for you but beacuse of apple's requirements you must use Xcode to upload

    The shenzhen project might be worth a try.

    Hope it helps

    Hi, alternatively use a virtual machine?

    Yep. That's pretty much the reply I got from Apple support.
