Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for: submitting your completed app to iTunes. There are several steps to the process, and you’ll want to have all your ducks in a row before you get started. At a minimum, you’ll need the following to complete the App Store submission process:
A plain-text description for the application (4,000 characters max).
A URL where people can learn more about your app.
A support URL and email address so people can contact you with issues pertaining to your app.
If your app requires a login, full access credentials for a demo account so reviewers can test your app.
A 512 × 512 pixel icon.
A 320 × 480 pixel screenshot of your app.
A distribution provisioning profile for the app.
A zipped version of the application binary.
Everything you need for submission is fairly straightforward except for the last two items: the distribution profile for the app, and the application binary. We’ll cover those in detail in the following sections.
