How to submit iOS app after updating to XCode 11.0

    I have updated Xcode to version 11.0.
    The update automatically deleted Application Loader from my Mac.
    Apple says that all submits of apps should now take place from XCode (Application Loader is discontinued).

    I have read a lot of documentation but not been able to find a single word about how to submit an IPA file from XCode 11.0.
    There are only docs about apps created in XCode - not created with other tools like Pubcoder.

    Is it currently possible to submit an iOS app made with Pubcoder from XCode 11.0?

    Hello John,
    seems like you have to use a shell command:

    xcrun altool --upload-app --type ios --file "path/to/application.ipa" --username "YOUR_ITMC_USER" --password "YOUR_ITMC_PASSWORD"

    Also note that "YOUR_ITMC_PASSWORD" is NOT your Apple ID password, but an application-specific password generated from https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage

    Of course we're actually studying a solution for making it simpler in an upcoming update of PubCoder.

  3. Is this still the only option?

    I managed to download and install Xcode 10.3 from here: https://developer.apple.com/download/more/
    Then "Application Loader" came back.
    You have to be logged in to your Apple developer account to download.

    I still have Xcode version 11 installed but will use version 10.3 so far as long as it works.

    Apple posted a new app called "Transporter" that replaces Application Loader for the task of uploading apps to the App Store.
    You can download it from the Mac App Store: https://apps.apple.com/it/app/transporter/id1450874784?l=en&mt=12
