Setting up Testing Devices


Depending on your Apple developer account, you can test your iOS apps on either a maximum or unlimited number of devices.

  • The $99 Apple developer account allows you to test your iOS apps on a maximum of 100 devices of each type:

    Apple TV     100
    Apple Watch  100
    iPad         100
    iPhone       100
    iPod Touch   100

    You must register the UDID of each device in your Apple developer account.

  • If you have the $299 Enterprise account, then you can install your app on any device without registering it.

Identify and Use UDIDs

The easiest way to find UDIDs is to connect to your iTunes account. Then connect your iOS device to your Mac computer. Your device will appear on the left sidebar in iTunes. Click on this to display your device information. Then click on the serial number, and you will see your UDID.


Return to your account on, go to IOS Apps  Devices  All, and click the plus button on the top right to register a new device. You can make the name anything you want, and the UDID must be the UDID copied from iTunes.


If you have a large number of devices to register, you may enter them in a text file in this format, and then upload the file:

Device ID  Device Name
A123456789012345678901234567890123456789   NAME1
B123456789012345678901234567890123456789   NAME2

When you are finished entering your device IDs, click the Continue button. Verify, and then click Done.
