Xcode iphone icon not updating

22 Feb

This tutorial will serve as sort of a reference guide for all of our posts that involve sideloading an app.

In this example I’m going to use Git Hub as our source for apps.

Keep in mind that a normal Apple ID can be turned into a developer account.

To create a developer account, visit Apple’s developer website at

If you already have a developer account, you can skip this section, otherwise you want to create one now.

Of course, there are always variations and one-offs that appear from time to time, but for the most part, sideloading apps is easy. Note: Before we get started, be sure to only sideload apps that you trust.

Since these apps are open source, look through the code if you wish to see what the app is doing.

This essentially amounts to Apple “opening up” i OS to all apps.

All it takes is a little knowledge of Xcode 7, an i Phone or i Pad running i OS 9, and a little bit of time.
