iOS App Store deployment using fastlane
Building your app
fastlane takes care of building your app using a feature called gym, just add the following to your
lane :appstore do gym(scheme: "MyApp") end
Additionally you can specify more options for building your app, for example
lane :appstore do gym(scheme: "MyApp", workspace: "Example.xcworkspace", include_bitcode: true) end
Try running the lane using
If everything works, you should have a
[ProductName].ipa file in the current directory. To get a list of all available parameters for gym, run
fastlane action gym.
Chances are that something went wrong because of code signing at the previous step. We prepared our own Code Signing Guide that helps you setting up the right code signing approach for your project.
Submitting your app

Upload the binary and app metadata
After building your app, it's ready to be uploaded to the App Store. If you've already followed iOS Beta deployment using fastlane, the following code might look similar already.
lane :appstore do snapshot # generate new screenshots for the App Store match(type: "appstore") # see code signing guide for more information gym(scheme: "MyApp") # build your app appstore # upload your app to iTunes Connect slack(message: "Successfully uploaded a new App Store build") end
fastlane automatically passes on information about the generated screenshots and the binary to the
appstore action of your
For a list of all options for each of the steps run
fastlane action [action_name].
To make sure your latest push notification certificate is still valid during your submission process, add the following at the beginning of your lane:
lane :appstore do pem # ... end
pem will ensure your certificate is valid for at least another 2 weeks, and create a new one if it isn't.
If you don't have any push certificates already, pem will create one for you and store locally in your project's directory. To get more information about the available options run
fastlane action pem.
