    Hi all,

    I'm trying to get my app working on my phone (6s+) in the new XCode 8 beta, but I have errors like these when I deploy my app on the phone :

    - Your account does not have sufficient permissions to modify containers.
    - Provisioning profile "iOS Team Provisioning Profile: com.bxxxx" doesn't support the App Groups capabilities.

    I have a free developer account because I don't plan to publish anything on the App Store, but when I go to I have a message :

    Your Developer Program Membership has expired

    And the only option I have is to renew a paied membership. Any idea ?

    Well I think something is definitely wrong with XCode's provisioning profile generator for free developer accounts :

    Did this work before Xcode 8?

    I could be wrong, but based on this chart here, I believe if you want to take advantage of advanced app capabilities on device, such as App Groups, you are required to have a Paid Developer account.

    Yes it worked in XCode 7.x, I could deploy my app on my phone without any issue, with exactly the same functionalities
