6. iOS Provisioning – Create and Import Provisioning

Choose Your Operating System
Windows
Mac OS
You must have a provisioning profile in order to install apps onto your iOS devices. These are created and downloaded through the Apple iOS Developer site. Your provisioning profile includes your signing certificate, devices, and an App ID. There are both development provisioning profiles which are used to build and install your game during the development cycle, and distribution provisioning profiles which are used when submitting your game to the App Store.
If you have previously developed iOS applications on a Mac but want to use Unreal Engine on a Windows PC to develop your iOS game, you can skip this step and download an existing provisioning profile from the Apple iOS Developer site to use with the Unreal iOS Configuration Wizard.
To create your mobile provisioning profile:
  1. Go to the iOS Provisioning Profiles page on the Apple iOS Developer site.
  2. Click the Add button to add a new profile.
  3. Under Development, select iOS App Development and click Continue.
