iPhone and iPad solutions: AppStore submission, UDIDs handling and more
Despite the fact that most iOS apps can be completed in as little as two months, a few specifics must be kept in mind when creating applications for either iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
The UDID, Apple’s unique device identifier, is used across the board to allow apps distribution over the company’s sophisticated cloud platform. Apps are installed either on the devices themselves or on a Mac’s iTunes, and all UDIDs records are kept on the system. But what if your application is not on the AppStore yet and you still need to test it?
Joining the Apple iPhone Developer Program allows members to install any of their applications on any device, even in an early development stage. At just $99 per year, the Apple iPhone Developer Program is the equivalent of purchasing a domain name when building a website. Once you become a member, your app can run and be tested on:
- All of our Apple devices (HireRussians can provide a number of different iPhone, iPads, and iPods for development and testing)
- Your personal iPhone, iPad, or iPod
- Any device owned by your friends, family, or customers
After you’ve become a member of the program, all you need to do is to send us your login information and we’ll take care of the rest. We handle it all, from assembling builds and adding the various UDIDs to creating certificates and submitting to the AppStore, and everything in between.
Apple’s iPhone Developer Program can be accessed right from their official website. If you need more information or support, don’t hesitate to contact us.

There are simply impressive with the accuracy, the consistency and the reliability of their work. They really know their thing and they've been of a great support. I cannot praise them enough after working with 2 different dev team on this same project, they were far more efficient and the result is more than satisfying. It seems that there is nothing they can't do. Just need to ask and they do it. A project manager is assigned at the beginning of the project and it's mind blowing how consistent she was with the daily report and making things go smoothly. I knew everyday what was done and it's really reassuring. There is a team in HireRussians and they really give the impression that they are working together. It just works. It sounds like an obvious expectation but after 2 not so positive experience with other developers (the ones saying they can do it all but actually can't), I can say that's a real deal! So, a big thank you to them and can't wait to work again with them!
