    Hi all,

    I got a small question regarding testflight for external.
    I submitted my app to itunesconnect with all proper signatures. I can testflight it instantly on Internal, but for external it states 'waiting for beta app review'

    Do I need to do anything else, like.. sublitting the app for review, as how you do to submit for the appstore? Or do I just wait for days before external can test the app?

    For external testing, the app goes through Apple to review. This generally takes a day or two.

    Hi VolceOntra,

    does that mean I have to submit for approval, or is this taken up automatically when I select the build for external testing?

    Just for clarification, maybe other might find this thread. I did not had time to move the project to the main domain yet, so I also did not submit it for approval yet. However I alreay did enable the External Testing and added the build, it's approved just an hour ago

    After archiving the app to the 'appstore' with xCode.
    If the intension is to Testflight, you do NOT have to submit the app for approval!

    Enable the External Testflight in itunesconnect, add tester(s) and the buid version you want them to test.
    withing 2 weekdays you can expect the approval message

    You do have to submit the external build for approval.

    The steps I mention in previous comment apply as accepted answer, which does not contain anything about seperate submit for approval.
    For strictly external testflight you do not need to submit for approval as you do for the appstore submit.

    I mean you meant for strictly internal testflight you do not need to pass the approval.

    For each version (as defined in appstore) you have to pass the review for external testing once. Subsequent builds are usually approved automatically (as long as you say that you did not do any major changes since the last version).
