    Does Apple have to call you after you get a 1 year developer account for a individual ? Also do you have to provide a website ?

    Thanks.

    Why’d Apple call you?

    To publish, yes, you need to have a domain as a business.

    So to just use it for personal use you don't need a domain as a business ?

    You can use for personal apps only but if you want to publish your apps then you’ll need the domain name.

    Cool. Just asking I doubt you will because it could be a security risk and I understand that. Show me pictures of the Apple Developer account and how it works please? Basically without your information there of course. Trying to figure out how to sign my personal apps for 1 year.

    They did not 10 years ago when I started. I did (do) have a company name listed at Dun & Bradstreet ( D-U-N-S ). That was all the verification I needed back then.

    It depends on what you need it for. If you’re just learning then you don’t actually need to pay for the yearly subscription.

    Just sign up here - https://developer.apple.com/

    You only need to pay to publish your apps.

    Yes but they only last 7 days signing a app without a paid developer account. Where with a paid developer account 1 year.

    At least I think I am right?

    You can deploy your own app to your devices with a development cert which doesn’t expire. You just won’t be able to publish it to the AppStore.

    Actually, coming to think of it, I do think I received a call from Apple to verify the account being legit. it has been many years. I can’t remember actually.

    Yes. If you just want to deploy the apps to your personal devices then you don’t need to pay.

    This is a app that was removed from the app store btw. Not sure if that makes any difference ?

    The method I’m talking about will mostly work with any project if you have the source code and if you’re able to build the project.

    If you don’t then there’s a method of invoking a Dev cert into an ipa but that’s a lot more complicated. And if you’re not an iOS developer or are not aware of the development environment then it might seem like a massive challenge to be honest. And explaining it here will take a lot of time which I might not be able to dedicate. Sorry, just being honest here.

    No problem.

    Is there any easy way ?

    Right now I use Impactor to sign the app every 7 days with a free Apple developer account. Thanks.

    No. It is a app I downloaded off my iPad and iPhone so if Apple ever deleted it from the app store I would still have it as a backup.

    Why ?

    Right, in that case, this is asking for information to illegally be able to use an app / service and it’s against the forum rules.

    Because in this forum piracy / illegal methods are not discussed or entertained. Users get banned for such activities.
