There are two types of certificates required to build your applications, both for debugging on a device and for App Store distribution. The first is your development certificate. This certificate is installed on your Mac within the keychain and is used for every single application you will develop. It identifies you, the developer, when you are distributing an app.
The second type is the application's provisioning profile. This profile certificate is both application-specific and release-specific. This means that you need to create a separate profile for each state of the application that you wish to release (the most common being development and distribution).
In this recipe, we will go through the process of creating and installing our developer certificate, and then creating and using an application-specific provisioning profile in Studio.
