In order to submit your iOS app to The Apple Store, you'll first need to enrol in the Apple Developer Program ($99 per year). Pricing may vary from region to region.

Before You Enrol

We recommend using an Apple ID that is not linked to your personal iCloud account.

IMPORTANT: Apple requires radio station owners to enrol as an organization. Without one, cannot develop your iOS app(s).

If you have an Apple ID then enter your email and password to continue. If you have forgotten your details then find your Apple ID. Alternatively, select Create Apple ID and fill out your details.
