Provisioning Your iOS Device for Generic Development
Open the Devices organizer.
Connect your device to your Mac.
Select the device, and click “Use for Development.”
Provision your iOS device to run generic apps on your device, such as sample apps.
Developing apps requires a provisioned device. The provisioning process sets up the required certificates and configuration data that Xcode needs to install your apps on your device. When you provision a device for generic development, Xcode adds your device to the generic team provisioning profile. This provisioning profile allows development of most (but not all) types of apps. For some types of apps (such as those that use push notifications or in-app purchases), you must use a manually configured provisioning profile.
