Add new app to App Store Connect
Add a new application on App Store Connect.
App Store Connect (formerly iTunes Connect) is Apple's platform where you manage the marketing and distribution of your application. This is where you will prepare the description of your application as it will appear on the App Store.
We recommend preparing your listing in parallel with the IPA export to avoid last-minute surprises.
