Create App Store Distribution Provisioning Profile

In the App Store you can publish only apps created with an App Store distribution provisioning profile. App Store distribution provisioning profiles do not contain provisioned devices. You cannot debug on device apps that are created with this type of provisioning profile.

You can create a provisioning profile in the iOS Dev Center.

Members of the iOS Developer Enterprise Program cannot create provisioning profiles for App Store distribution.

In the extension for Visual Studio, you can use the AppBuilder code signing assistance to create a distribution provisioning profile.
