    You need to pay the $99 fee to get certificates to sign the application to install on a device for testing and to upload to the store. Yes, even for a free app.

    You do ad-hoc provisioning to beta test on devices.

    iTunes Connect has no "test mode".

    You need to test your app on actual devices before you submit it to iTunes Connect for approval. As robbieduncan and fishkorp have said, you need to be enrolled in the paid developer program and then you can either deploy to your own device(s) or do ad-hoc builds to allow other beta testers to run your app.

    I have already paid $99. Now I want to test my application on my actual device. For that I have to put my application in i-tune store then n only I can download to my actual device. But if I will do this then it will go for approval but I don't want to send my un-tested application for approval so what to do for that?

    Is there any way?

    How can I test my application on my actual device?

    There is a guide, step by step instructions and help on the developer portal : go read it and follow the steps: I'm not about to copy it all here

    You keep insisting that this is the case and we keep insisting that it isn't. If you refuse to believe us (and not follow the step-by-step instructions on how to deploy the app to your device as outlined in the Program Portal), I'm not sure we can be of any further help.
