    So I deployed an app to my device and it installs and runs fine. However, I'm trying to deploy a separate app that isn't the same from the first app, but whenever I do, the first app I deployed gets overwritten. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    What type of device is your device? You posted in the Mac Programming section, not the iOS Programming section...

    Anyways, I would guess that both of your apps have the same bundle identifier. That's the thing that normally looks something like com.company-name.name-of-my-app

    Make sure your bundle identifiers are different or the OS, whichever OS it is, will think they're the same and overwrite one with the other when you try deploying both on the same device.

    Sorry, forgot to mention I'm trying to deploy to my iPad.

    How do I manually change the identifier in Xcode?
