Should I be able to unzip my *.ipa package signed with a distribution profile and move the resulting *.app file to my device via xCode?

 

When I move the *.app built with the developer profile I can move it to the device without problem. When I try the above I get the xCode error dialog "App Installation failed", "Could not write to the device".

 

Macbook Pro High Sierra (V 10.13.4)

xCode Version 9.3 (9E145)

Corona build 3282

 

I'm trying to resolve a binary rejection problem with Apple:

 

Guideline 2.1 - Performance - App Completeness

We discovered one or more bugs in your app when reviewed on iPad running iOS 11.3.1 on Wi-Fi connected to an IPv6 network.
Specifically, we were still unable to install the app.

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried to download the app via TestFlight?

 

The problem you are probably running into is that you're trying to use a app folder that was signed with a distribution for the store profile. Xcode should not allow you to install this. Xcode should be restricted to Developer profiles and AdHoc Distribution profiles (different that Store profiles)

 

TestFight should give you the same experience that their testers are seeing.

Just tried TestFlight but got error saying "Unable to Download App". Could that be because the binary has been rejected?

Dunno. You have to do things to make it available via testflight (set up test accounts, publish the app to testflight, you may need to upload a new version make it available)
