I would like to do beta test before publishing the forms app but stuck for long.
For Android it is quite simple, just archived the xamarin.Android project, which generates an apk file. And then I uploaded it to App Center and distribute to testers via email.
for ios, here are what I tried:
pre: my xamarin.ios project is working well with automatic provisioning, and the simulator is working in visual studio on windows too.
I have an paid apple developer account. There are testers' registered devices in the portal.
Since App Center required an ipa file to distribute, I set the configuration
I found the ipa file under bin folder, just uploaded it to App Center. My tester told me he wasn't able to install that ipa file.
Then I tried to use Testflight, but there is no bundle id to select while creating the app at Apple Storage Connect. I think there should be one matches the info.plist file.
Can I archive the ios project? Yes, but not able to distribute after selecting Ad hoc:
Seems try 2 and try 3 will only works if I use manual provisioning instead of automatic provisioning.
So what's the correct way to do the beta testing? Can I keep everything remained working with automatic provisioning, and distribute this version for beta test?
