    Right-click the project and choose archive for publishing option, it opens a wizard and guides you to create iPA file.

    Simply set your build mode to Release, build your app, and then you can retrieve the .ipa file on your mac or on your PC. To make the directory where it is stored in appear on your mac, in visual studio just click the 'Show IPA File on Build Server' icon. Then use Application Loader to upload it to the App Store.
