Deploy an iOS application

There are several ways to deploy your application on iOS devices. Except for the private hub, these options require an Apple Developer account (and an Apple Developer Enterprise Program for in-house deployment) and specific configuration.

Publish on the Apple App Store

The App Store is the official platform for downloading iOS apps.  Accessible from any iOS device, it's the best way to promote your app to the largest number of people.
+ Your application is accessible to all users of the App Store and easily downloadable.
- Your application must comply with the  App Store Review Guidelines, especially in terms of content and functionality.  

Distribute an in-house app via the Apple Developer Enterprise Program

The Apple Developer Enterprise Program enables large enterprises to deliver an iOS application to employees for internal use. The application is deployed on a secure server or via an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution.
+ A simple and secure deployment solution for large companies and internal uses
- The company must  meet the eligibility criteria (including having more than 100 employees) and have an Apple Developer Enterprise Program ($299/year). Without an MDM, the user must manually approve the installation of the application on their device.

Deploy an Ad Hoc app

This distribution method is proposed by Apple to limit the distribution of the application to a fleet of registered iOS devices. Your application must be signed by an ad hoc iOS provisioning profile and the devices must be registered in the Devices section of your Apple Developer space.
+ The installation procedure is relatively simple.
- Devices must be registered beforehand.

+ A solution designed for the business challenges of companies
- Requires the implementation of Apple Business Manager.
