View Full Version : Safely removing device from portal

Aug 24, 2013, 10:42 AM
I have a few friends testing my app on iOS 7 and I've finished testing for the most part. I would like to take them off of my devices list in the Portal. When will I be able to do this safely with out bricking their devices?

Thanks for your help!

FYI: I'm new developer (started back in October), so I have never had experiences with beta releases.

You can't remove a device!

not even when the GM is released? It will still brick the device?

As I understand it, if you remove them from the portal, they no longer are on the developer whitelist, and the next time the phone goes through a new activation (e.g. iOS install), it won't show up as a developer device and will be stuck with public releases. Also, if you remove it, the device shouldn't immediately brick since I think it only runs that check when going through a new install or restore. However, I've never tested this.
