Can you install app on ipad without publishing to the app store

I am attempting to install my app on an iPad but do not want to publish to the app store. I’m having a hard time finding resources on how to do this (or if it’s possible).

Does anyone have experience with this?

You used to be able to download iOS apps to run on a personal device but Apple has changed the requirements and that is not currently possible with Thunkable.

So your other options are to use TestFlight to install the app on an iPad or publish it as a web app and run it in a browser on the iPad.


Thunkable is currently working on a way to download it again that complies with Apples requirements. However there isn’t a timeline at this point.
