Creating a development provisioning profile

Once you have a development certificate and at least one registered iOS device and an App ID, you are ready to create a provisioning profile. A development provisioning profile is a file that ties an app (or group of apps) to one or more authorized developers and a set of devices. Before you can test an app on a device, you must first install a provisioning profile onto it. A device can have multiple provisioning profiles installed.

Provisioning profiles are created from the iOS Provisioning Portal.
