Because of specific guidelines issued by Apple regarding iOS app releases, there are a few extra requirements that must be met for us to develop and publish your branded app. These requirements apply to all businesses and developers who wish to operate on the App Store. We can no longer publish apps for single person businesses and clients without an Apple device. You are also required to enroll for the Apple Developer Account and pay a 99$ annual fee to be able to have a branded app.
Because these changes were issued directly by Apple, Virtuagym had to revise current guidelines and change the processes to be able to keep developing iOS apps for you. More information about new guidelines can be found on Apple’s website https://developer.apple.com/support/enrollment/.
You are ready to enroll for the Apple Developer program if you meet the following requirements:
