TestFlight settings

  • Enter your TestFlight settings:

    • Bundle ID — Choose the bundle ID of the app you use for beta testing. You can choose the same bundle ID as your production app, or select an alternate one linked to this App Store Connect installation if you use a different app for beta testing.

    • Default external testing groups — Select default external beta groups to distribute builds to.

Beta builds distributed through TestFlight require approval from Apple before they become available to external testers. Note that all eligible builds will be immediately available to users in the App Store Connect Users group (these are considered ‘internal testers’ by Apple).

Beta builds can be manually submitted for approval via Runway, or you can enable the Submit new builds for beta review automation.
