    Hi Guys,
    There used to be a forum header “App Store Legal and Marketing”. I can’t see that anymore.
    My developer program has expired about a week ago. It isn’t the first time I’ve let it lapse,
    and then catch up again later, and the Apps go back in the App Store.

    My Apps on the device still run, presumably because the certificate on the device hasn’t expired,
    but I am unable to sign any Apps to load to the device from Xcode now, so I’d be unable to
    update any Apps on my device even though I could use them.

    What is it that Xcode knows that the device does not know to run my Apps?
    Is it possible, it has been some months since I opened Xcode.. that a certificate in Xcode expired?
    I would have created whatever certificates it needs after paying my dev program fee,
    so whatever is installed on it shouldn’t have been a year old quite yet... like the cert on the device.

    So my question is really what is it that has stopped it working?
    Cheers, Art.

    Less lost in L.A.
    They hosed the programming special interest section and tossed that forum into the archive section;

    What I don't get out of your post is, after letting the developer program lapse, have you renewed it?

    Look into the keychain in the My Certificate section and review Expires column.

    Xcode 7 will allow you to develop and upload your apps to your personal iOS devices.

    No I have not renewed it.
    I understand that I have not paid, and it should not work, but I didn’t expect the timing
    to be so precise to when my dev program expired. More that when certificates expired.
    I’ll check the area you suggested, thanks.

    I suppose if there is some trick to keep it working longer, it would need to be done before the dev program expired.
    Like the iOS device, it appears you can load a profile onto it just before the dev program expired, and keep using a
    personal App for the duration of the profile on the device.

    You can inspect the profiles on the device with the Settings app.
