    In the latest version of Xcode, 4.5.2, what do I have to change in order to change the name of an app before submitting it to apple. I've done a bunch of google searches but was only finding results for older versions of Xcode.

    Thanks in advance,

    Where do you want the app name to appear different? It shows up in a few places.

    under the icon on the home screen, and also in the app store.

    This is the "Bundle display name" setting in your target's Info tab (within Xcode).

    This is changed in iTunes Connect.

    But, that is likely set to: ${PRODUCT_NAME}. For that, he need to set Product name in Build Settings tab. Then he may want to change target name - just click slowly twice on target name. Project name can be changed in that right pane (File Inspector?) under Identity. Then he may want to change the Scheme name, that is done under Manage Schemes...

    Sure. But, if he doesn't want to "ripple down" to all those other ones, it's easy enough to override the ${PRODUCT_NAME} setting and just put in his own desired name.

    Thanks, that was exactly what I needed to know.
