Commit → Build → Test → Release

Commit to a feature branch to build and test. Commit to a beta branch to distribute to testers. Commit to master to submit to the App Store. Customize to fit your team’s workflow.


Find bugs on any device before release.

Does your app still run on iOS 9 after merging that feature branch? Find out by testing your app in a hosted device lab with 1000s of real iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches. You’ll receive full-resolution screenshots of every step, along with performance metrics.

Automate your release process

Specify a group of testers or create an open beta recruitment page. Connect that group to a branch to automatically send updates whenever code is merged.

Promote validated builds to the App Store

Once you’ve beta tested a release candidate, promote the same build directly to iTunes Connect. App Center tracks your builds through every release.


Crash reports so nice, you’ll
almost want your app to crash.

Integrate the App Center SDK for automatic crash reporting. Build your app in App Center, and get automatic symbol management for richer reports.

Crash reports are grouped by common cause, highlighting the relevant stack frame so you can locate errors by file and
line number. Browse individual reports for event breadcrumbs and custom data attachments.
