When I try to create a profile to build an iOS app by going to Project → General → Signing, and selecting my Team (Personal), I get two errors:

Failed to create provisioning profile.

There are no devices registered in your account on the developer website. Plug in and select a device to have Xcode register it.


No profiles for 'com.my.app.id' were found

Xcode couldn't find any iOS App Development provisioning profile matching 'com.my.app.id'.

I tried to check many tutorials and questions but nothing helped me to solve these errors. Many URLs take me to the Apple Development website, but there I only have the option to pay for the membership, and as I understood that's not necessary to build and run an app on an iOS device.

  • Welcome to Ask Different :) Have you connected your device to your Mac? Have you selected in as the run destination? – Nimesh Neema Jun 29 '19 at 20:51
  • Thanks for the welcome and both thanks for your comment. Apparently yes the problem was that I didn't select my device as run destination. If you answer it I would be glad to give you the best answer. – Gicminos Jun 29 '19 at 21:06

Make sure you have connected your iOS device to your Mac and selected it as the run destination.

Yes, you do not need a paid membership to the Apple developer program. You can register for an Apple developer account for free and can build and run apps on a maximum of upto three devices.
