In order to develop in-house apps that are not hosted in the App Store, you must register for an enterprise iOS Developer account.
Follow the steps below to set one up. Need to host your app in the App Store? Get a standard iOS Developer account instead.
- Sign in. Review what you need to enroll. Click Start Your Enrollment. You will need an Apple ID to log in and sign up.
- Create a unique ID, if necessary. Don’t have an Apple ID? You’ll need to create one. Only have a personal Apple ID? Consider creating a new one specifically for your organization. No matter what, your new or existing ID must be associated with an email address that uses your organization’s domain name.
- Read and agree to the Developer Agreement, if necessary. Check the box to indicate you agree, then click Submit.
- Complete your account details. Choose an entity type (for most customers, this is Company / Organization), then click Continue. Confirm you have authority to sign legal agreements on behalf of your organization. Enter your contact information. If necessary, enter the organization information as well. If you don’t know your D-U-N-S number, you can look it up. Once you’re done, click Continue.
- Wait for approval. Once you’ve submitted, Apple will review your enrollment request. This process can take anywhere from one to four weeks. When Apple does approve, you’ll receive an email.
- Read and agree to the Enterprise License Agreement. Click the link in the email. Check the box to indicate you’ve read the terms, then click I Agree.
- Pay the annual $299 fee. Click Purchase. Enter your payment information and submit the order. It can take roughly 24 hours for Apple to activate your license. If it takes any longer than that, contact Apple.
