    I am just developing my first app. I have an Android phone to test on , but not an iphone. Obviously in the ideal world I would buy an iphone but I need to be sure that this is going to work out before making such a substantial investment.

    The app is pretty straightforward, so am fairly confident it will be fine on IOS, but in the icenium documentation (http://docs.icenium.com/working-with-devices/apple-ios-devices/how-to-create-and-install-your-developer-provisioning-profile-and-certificate), it says  in step 3. "3. Register your test device(s)".

    Is there a way around this?

    Hi John,

    No, you do not need an iOS device in order to publish for the Apple App Store. If you already have
    valid provision and certificate pair, you can publish your application following the steps from the following help article.

    "If you already have
    valid provision and certificate pair,"

    I understand that, but in the article I linked to about creating a provision and cert, it says in step 3 that you need to provide the id of test device.

    As it happens, I have taken the leap and bought an iphone, but an answer might be helpful to others.

    Hello John,

    There seems to be some confusion. The article you've referenced is How to create and install your Developer Provisioning Profile and Certificate where the key word is "Developer". Since you want to publish your app to the app store, the right article to read for this purpose is How to build your app for the AppStore, where there is no step that involves registering your device.

    Kind regards,
