The My Apps section of iTunes connect contains any applications that you have on the iOS store. Select the app which you would like to create an update for. In this example, I will create a new entry for our "Sheep Herder" app

I ask how can I add my certificate after renew
because I get a error
certificate has expired

Elanor Buchanan

Hi, once you have renewed your certificate you will need to update your provisioning profile. You then need to download and install your updated certificate and provisioning profile. Once the new certificate and profile are installed the profile will appear in the list in the Standalone Application Settings and you will be able to build your app with the new profile.

You can find more details in this lesson, it is about creating a certificate and profile for the first time but the downloading and installing steps are the same for updating.


I hope that helps.

Kind regards
