Apple Developer Program Information says:

A Development Provisioning Profile must be installed on each device on which you wish to run your application code.

Each Development Provisioning Profile will contain a set of iPhone Development Certificates, Unique Device Identifiers and an App ID.

So where are provisioning profiles in my iPhone XS?

Can I see them?

Can I download them?

Can I beam them to any other device via bluetooth? airdrop? email?


The link you've included in your question doesn't in fact contain that quote.

The easiest way to manage the provisioning profiles on the iPhone is to open Xcode and select the menu item "Devices and Simulators" in the Window menu. Right-click on your iPhone XS and select "Show provisioning profiles".

You'll then be able to see the installed profiles, add new ones and delete existing profiles.

You cannot download a provisioning profile from the device, nor can you "beam" an installed provisioning profile. However, you can just copy the provisioning profile to the device (or store it on iCloud Drive) as an ordinary file (i.e. without actually installing it) - that file can then easily be transferred using AirDrop, email or whatever.

On the actual device you will in some instances also have a menu in Settings - General - Device Management that will list the installed profiles.
