iOS: App build types

Twixl Support Team Updated: - Created :

    Apple provides different types of app builds, depending on your use case.

    In order to create any type of build, the build settings for your app on the platform must contain the relevant Bundle Identifier.

    1. Development build

    A development build is going to be required only for testing push notifications in your app. This type of app always expects an app in Development Mode on the platform.

    2. Ad Hoc build

    iOS Developers enrolled in the standard iOS Developer program have the opportunity to distribute their application outside of the App Store on up to 100 devices. Use the Ad Hoc Bundle ID in the build setting of your app to create a build of your app to distribute internally. This type of app always requires an app in Production Mode on the platform.

    3. Enterprise build

    iOS Developers enrolled in the iOS Developer Enterprise program have the opportunity to distribute their application outside of the App Store and without the 100 devices limit. Use the Enterprise Bundle ID in the build setting to distribute a build of your app internally. This type of app always requires an app in Production Mode on the platform.

    4. App Store build

    Use the "App Store" Bundle ID in the build setting to create a build that you will be submitting to the App Store. This type of app always requires an app in Production Mode on the platform.
