iPhone (or iPad) Testing - Testing New Builds of Your App

This post provides instructions on testing a newer version of your App, by first deleting the older one on your iPhone (or iPad).

  6. Connect your iPhone or iPad.  iTunes may start syncing, wait until it is over.  Then go to your device, and choose the Apps tab.  Find your App and make sure the Sync box is checked.  Since you just deleted the previous version, there is a good chance that it was not checked.  In that case, click the Sync box, and press the Apply button at the bottom right hand corner of iTunes.ipad testing sync new app version
