Registering an iPhone and Other Apple Testing Devices

The hardest part of developing apps for the iPhone is not the code you develop, but ensuring you have all of your i’s and t’s dotted and crossed per Apple’s rigorous registration process. One small step in the wrong direction and your App will not compile or install correctly. It is worth taking your time to go through the setup process (New!). After you have your P12 Certificates you will need to register your test iPhone with Apple. You can register up to 100 devices per year. The developer account ID, registered device and P12 certificates are needed for all apps your want to sell in the iTunes App Store. You can register iPhone’s, iPod Touches and iPads.
