Obtaining developer files from Apple

As in developing any application for the iPhone, you must first obtain iPhone developer files from Apple. You need to obtain an iPhone developer certificate and a mobile provisioning profile. You also need to obtain other provisioning profiles. See the Glossary for definitions of these files.

Note: Obtaining these files is an important part of the application development process. Be sure to complete this process before developing your application. Obtaining developer files is not a simple process. Read these instructions and the instructions at theApple iPhone Dev Center site carefully.
