  1. In iOS, we need the UDID of the device on which we have to install the development build. Can you please tell that how does diawi work and are we able to install the app in any iOS device?

    1. Hi Christina,
      Thanks for reading the article. Please find the answer to your query:

      Through Diawi, you can only install the iOS apps on the devices whose UDID is provided along with the build. For that, you will have to enter the device UDID in the Apple developer account and then create the development build.
      Once you have created the build, upload the same on Diawi and you will be able to download the app only on those devices whose UDID is added in the build. You also have an option to check the list of UDIDs in Diawi for that you have to go to “Provisioned Devices” section in the diawi app download page.

      I hope this information proves helpful to you.
      Thanks.
