iOS Certificate Renewal Issues
Every year, I have to go through the hassle of redoing all the provisioning profile and certificate stuff. And every year, I forget exactly what I did and have to go scouring the web to figure out what to do. So this year, I’m writing a blog post in the hopes that I’ll remember to look at this in future years.
- If you go to Xcode -> Organizer -> Devices -> Refresh and it crashes, remove “~/Library/Developer/Xcode/connect1.apple.com*”.
- Go to Apple’s developer portal -> Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles -> Certificates -> All and hit the “+” sign to generate new certificates.
- If “iOS App Development” is grayed out, then revoke all your expired certificates.
- Ideally, you should be able to go to Xcode -> Organizer -> Devices -> Provisioning Profiles and just hit “Renew” on all the expired profiles. If not, then you may just have to do it manually through the developer portal.
