This article provides information on frequently asked questions regarding the Enterprise Apps.
Enterprise Apps caters to businesses by serving as internal apps their employees can rely on for up-to-date information and in-house purposes.
Enterprise Apps require no review process since they are installed by navigating to a download link that you provide your clients with. They are not hosted in the App Store since they are intended for use only by a limited party.
See this newsletter for more detailed info on the release.
Q: Who can publish Enterprise apps?
A: Enterprise clients permanently.
Q: How does the publishing process work?
A: You will publish as normal, but select the Enterprise Distribution option instead. Plug in your email address, and you will receive the app URL via email. You can then distribute this URL to your client, who can pass it along to their employees. When the link is loaded on an iOS device, it will begin installing the app normally.
Q: How are these Enterprise apps different from the usual iOS apps?
A: Aside from requiring no review process, keep in mind that push notifications will not work for these apps since they do not go through the necessary Apple Developer steps where push notifications are enabled. However, you can still publish push notifications if you would like them to be viewable within the Messages tab of your app.
Q: If I'm a Reseller, what happens to my Enterprise apps after the 30-day trial is over?
A: Absolutely nothing! They will remain live after this period is over - you just will not be able to publish additional Enterprise apps without upgrading to the Enterprise program.
Q: And if I do want to upgrade to Enterprise to permanently take advantage of this?
A: Email us! We're happy to discuss the program in detail so you are well informed before jumping in.
