What are Apple & Google Developer accounts?

Apple and Google Developer accounts are required for publishing iOS and Android apps through the public stores; an Apple Developer account is also required for publishing iOS enterprise apps. 

You will need the details of your Apple and Google developer accounts when publishing your app.  While Apple will review your apps prior to official release in its public store, Google doesn’t require a review. In-house or enterprise apps also don’t undergo any review.

Why create Apple & Google Developer accounts

Apple and Google Developer accounts are required to publish your iOS and Android apps to the Apple App Store and Google Play store, or iOS enterprise apps. Publication of your apps to the public app stores is best for maximum exposure, allowing your app to reach a wider audience. If you are creating enterprise apps for internal use only, publishing to the public stores isn’t recommended.
