If you are looking to simply update an existing app, please see the short video here.

Publishing a Fliplet app as an Apple Enterprise app will generate a file to distribute to your enterprise store. Please first make sure you have your Apple Developer account correctly set up as an Enterprise account. See this article for more on configuring Apple Developer accounts.

To get started, in Fliplet go to the Publish section and click begin publishing to the right of Publish to Apple Devices. Select the Enterprise tab at the top. You will need to fill out each of the sections below. At any time you can click the blue Save progress button in the bottom left to save your progress. 

1. App details (required)

  • App icon – This icon will be displayed on all devices and should be relevant and unique to the app/your organization

  • Splash screen – This is the loading screen that shows up for several seconds when the app first loads. It is common to use a company logo or image.

2. App listing details (required)

  • App icon name – Choose the name that will appear below your app’s icon on a user’s device. This is limited to 30 characters and typically only 13 characters will be displayed.

3. App Technical Details (required)

  • Apple Developer Login and password – Enter your credentials used when signing up for the Apple Developer account. Click Login when you have entered the correct credentials.

  • Verify your identity – If you have two-factor authentication on your Apple Developer account (which Fliplet recommends) you will need to enter the code sent to your device then click the Verify button

  • Select a Developer Account Team – select the team you will use to publish the app.

  • Provide us with a distribution certificate choosing from the following options – For more on certificates, see this article. If this is your first submission, you will have two options: 

    • Generate a new distribution certificate – Fliplet will generate the certificate for you

    • Upload your own distribution certificate – This is only recommended if you have already used the maximum number of certificates for your account. 

    • If you have already submitted the app then you will see a third recommended option – Use distribution certificate details from your latest submissions

  • App version number – Fliplet will generate and update this automatically for you, however, you can modify it following the 1.0.0 numbering convention.

  • Bundle ID – this is a unique ID for your app on the App Store. It must follow the structure ‘com.CompanyName.AppName’

When you have verified all of the information is correct and complete, click the green Request App button in the bottom left. You can check the status of the build near the top of this screen. If the build is successful, you can download the file to load it into your enterprise store.
