4) Click Choose File and upload the CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningRequest file you downloaded from the link below and click Continue.

Deactivate Location Permission: If you want location information not to be used in your application, you must mark this field.

Activate AdMob: If your app will have AdMob ads, you should mark this field and paste the AdMob App ID you got from AdMob into this field. Otherwise, your ads will not appear in your application.

After downloading both files, click Update. After about 10 seconds, click Generate. Your IPA file will appear on our confirmation screen. Please contact us after requesting approval of your IPA request. If at least 3 months have passed since your last IPA production, our team will approve your IPA request and your file will begin to be produced.
