  • Start reading about Apple’s iOS Dev Center that have a large number of documentation and various samples of how you can initiate with the application. Reading and getting introduced is the best way to start up with as you will get familiar with the things before you start anything with your app.
  • Log into the Apple developer account and then download and run some sample projects given in XCode and enjoy the feel of the projects. Also try some demo applications and read the tutorials from the web resources. Do not hurry. Spend some quality time doing all this.

Step 2:

Setting up your iPhone Application

  • Every application that runs on the iPhone is given with its unique ID and a set of certificates like the Ad-Hoc certificate, development certificate and the distribution certificate that are required to authenticate the passionate developer present in you.
  • If you want to test the application that you have designed on any other device that does not belong to you, you have to create an Ad-Hoc certificate that will contain your friend’s device UDID. When it is the time to spend your application to the App Store, you have to create a distribution certificate.

Step 3:

Coding of your application:

  • Initiate the XCode, then create a new project for your iPhone giving the name of the app and then set up your project info. This step is important to tell XCode what SDK, what architecture and what device type and certificates are required.
  • Make sure that you have selected the Debug configuration drop down and the select the Development certificate for code signing.
  • Select the configuration drop down to release and then choose the Distribution certificate for your code signing.
  • Click on the configurations Tab which is present at the top of the list and inside the list, select your Release, and then click duplicate at the bottom.
  • Go back in XCode, choose the file, New File.
  • Go back to your project window and select the Ad-Hoc from the configurations and then set the particular value for code signing entitlements etc.

Step 4:

Testing of the Application:

  • Select the stimulator and debug it from the dropdown list and then press the build and run icon.
  • Debug the errors
  • Check for the memory usage
  • Review your application

Submit your application:

  • Create your own distribution set up by selecting the device and the release from the drop down.

Step 6:

Promote your Application:

  • If everything goes well, advertise your application via social media and various other means available online.
