The Apple Developer Account of an iOS Developer is essential, since releasing an application is not feasible without one. The creation of an Apple Developer Account requires your Apple ID, and an Apple Device to enable Two-factor authentication for your Apple ID.

To start with:

  • Press "Enroll."
  • Scroll down and press "Start your Enrollment."
  • Sign in with your Apple ID. In case you do not have an Apple ID, then create one by pressing: "Do not have an Apple ID? Create yours now."
  • If your Apple ID has any pending issues like the setup of two-factor authentication, now is the time to fix them.
  • Accept the agreement provided by Apple.

Are you an Individual?

Steps to create an Apple Developer Account:

  • Fill the information (email, name, and country) carefully, because Apple will check its legal validity.
  • Set Entity Type to "Individual/ Sole Proprietor/ Single Person Business." 
  • Press "Continue."
  • Fill your contact information, and agree to legal requirements.
  • Submit payment.

Are you an Organization?

Steps to create an Apple Developer Account:

Creating an Apple Developer Account as an Organization takes a little more effort, as the procedure has some extra requirements. 

  • A D-U-N-S Number: it allows Apple to verify the organization's identity and legal entity status. Retrieving a D-U-N-S number can take up to two weeks, so begin the  procedure to get it as soon as possible.
  • Legal Entity Status: Apple does not accept DBAs, fictitious businesses, trade names, or branches. 
  • Legal Binding Authority: You must own legal authority to bind your organization to legal agreements.
  • A Website: Your organization’s website must be publicly available and the domain name must be associated with your organization, unless you are a Non-Profit Organization, Accredited Educational Organization or Government Organization.

After acquiring all these requirements:

  • Fill the information (email, name, and country) carefully, because Apple will check its legal validity.
  • Select your organization’s Entity Type.
  • Press “Continue.”
  • Fill the information of your organization, and agree to legal requirements.
  • Wait until your enrollement has been accepted by Apple. 
  • Submit payment.

Now what?

Well now, all you have to do is wait for Apple to verify your account's validity. This review can take from one day to one week. After Apple approves your account, submit payment and connect your account to Kodika!
