Release vs. AppStore configuration

anveanve DEMember ✭✭✭

As can be seen here there are different configurations available:


Which bundle signing option do you use for each? These are the ones I currently use:

-Debug: Automatic
-AdHoc: Ad-Hoc (Automatic)
-Release: Automatic
-AppStore: my created distribution profile

Except for debug I always create an ipa file (iOS IPA Options). How do you do that?

What is the difference between Release and AppStore configuration? What is used for what?

    One more question:

    If I make an AppStore build with my current settings, the iTunesArtwork and metadata is included in the IPA file despite the option "Include iTunesArtwork images" is deselected. So the only way for my unified API project is to use the Release build and archive it to get the correct IPA file for Testflight?
