    I could really use an assist on this. I was learning IOS development from a textbook. I signed up as a developer (the free one, not the $99 per year) and things were working fine for awhile, then suddenly, when I try to open my Xcode project, I get "The identity 'iPhone Developer' doesn't match any valid, non-expired certificate/private key pair in your keychains"

    I don't see any developer certificates in my keychain. I went to Window > Organizer, and hit Refresh, but then I get error "Too few items in teams"
    I don't have a clue what that means.

    Supposedly there is an IOS provisioning profiles page or section on the IOS developer's site, but I'll be darned if I can find it.

    So I'm basically dead in the water and just wondering if anyone knows how to fix this.

    Thanks much!

    Certificates and provisioning profiles are needed for installing apps on a device. As a non-paid developer, you aren't allowed to do that, so you shouldn't need certs or provisioning profiles. (I've been a member of a paid developer program for many years, so I don't remember what Xcode looks like if you're not.)

    Is Xcode set to build for "iOS Device", by any chance? If so, switch it back to build for a simulator.

    Thanks so much for the reply. I thought I would try a clean uninstall, then reinstall of Xcode, and that seems to have fixed it. I don't see anything different in my list of certificates, though, so it sounds like you are correct that a certificate isn't needed.
