  • User248870 posted

    Hello ppl!! I would like to deploy my Xamarin Forms app to an iOS development device for the first time, just to test how it actually looks and works. Should i follow the steps https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/ios/deployment,testing,and_metrics/testflight/ and act like is an iOS xamarin app or there is another way for Xamarin Form Apps? I would really appreciate if someone could guide me through this procedure. Thanks!

    okay! but on step 5 -> Plug in the iOS device you wish to deploy to and create a new blank single-view iOS project in Xcode. I Dont work with xcode! i am working with VS15 and xf

    As far as I'm aware you need a Mac to deploy to an iOS device, you should't need to put up a TestFlight build just to look at your app from a phone.

    You use Xcode to create the provisional profile, It's not making the app in Xcode. Follow the documentation on your mac and it'll work.
