    Hi, I have signed up for a developer account but I have not done any changes to it apart from running several apps with the iOS Team Provisioning Profile created by Xcode 5. I'm planning to migrate to a new Mac and I do not wish to take anything to the new Mac that can be downloaded from developer account again.

    What exactly do I need to take (specially from keychain?) to my new Mac ?

    You want to export your developer certificate(s) from your keychain into a .p12 file, then import it onto your new machine. Once you have installed the certificates, quit and relaunch Xcode, then ask it refresh your provisioning profiles. The rest should be automatic.

    Those can actually be downloaded through Xcode's built-in organizer, which can be accessed by clicking on "Organizer" in the "Window" menu.

    I think you might have to select your Mac in the left pane, if it's not already selected, then select "Use for Development" before you can request a certificate using Xcode.

    Downloading any certificates without the private keys is pretty useless. Apple doesn't have them. So he needs to export them from the earlier Mac in .p12's.
