I need to submit my binary files over the air without pushing app to app-store. one solution is using enterprise program, Test-Flight App Beta Testing we can send binary files to external users to limit of 1000.
My Questions is :
- will apple take beta review (following apple guidelines) of the app?
- only iOS8 build will be supported?
- Is there any time limitations for the app in beta phase and then apple will revoke the app?because we are not submitting app to app store.
Is there any alternative SDK's through over the air so that we can send binary files to external users?
Any help will be appreciated.
Best How To :
Test-Flight App Beta Testing
Answer 1 : yes, Apps may only use TestFlight to beta test apps intended for public distribution and must comply with the full App Review Guidelines.
Answer 2 : yes, there wan't be any problem if you selected minimum target as IOS 8. If user have iPhone OS less then IOS 8 then he/she wan't be allowed to install the app. this is default nature of apple.
Answer 3 : once your application cleared Beta test phase of apple. then apple will allowed to give that build to external tester for 30 days. after 30 days, you need to submit new apps if you want to give build to external tester. there wan't be any way you can directly publish app to app stored once apps cleared beta test reviewed. you need to submit as new for publish app to app stored.
