Submitting an app to the iTunes App Store can be somewhat confusing the first time around. To help eliminate some of the confusion, we will break down the submission process to help you get on your way to having your app approved.
Registration to become a developer as a individual or company costs $99 per year. Keep in mind that to develop Mac OS X and iOS apps for the App store, you will need to have an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. To complete your registration, you will have to provide personal information such as your address, etc.
Also, if you want to charge people to download your app, you will need to have your bank account information handy. Supplying Apple with your bank account information allows them to do direct deposits for any sales that are made.
Once you have registered as a developer, coded and tested your app, and have all of your relevant information nearby, you can begin the submission process. App submission takes place via iTunes Connect. To access the site, visit this link:
Log in to the site using your Apple Developer credentials. After you have logged in, click on Manage Your Applications followed by Add New Application.
Under Export Compliance, you will be asked if your product contains encryption. The majority of developers will select No. You don't want to make a mistake here, however, because you could run into trouble.
