Register Device for Development and Distribution

To run your app on device during the development process, you need to build and code sign the app with a development provisioning profile or with an Ad Hoc distribution provisioning profile that includes the device. The provisioning profile must include the device that you wish to test on. To include a device in a provisioning profile, you need to register it in the iOS Dev Center.

To distribute in-house applications to selected users, you need to register their devices in your iOS Developer Enterprise Program in the iOS Dev Center.
