iOS Developer Enterprise Program

Who should apply to the iOS Developer Enterprise Program?

Developers who create proprietary in-house iOS apps should apply to the iOS Developer Enterprise Program. A Dun & Bradstreet (D-U-N-S) Number is required for enrollment.

What are the primary differences between the Standard, Enterprise, and University Programs?

The standard individual and standard company programs are intended for developers who create free and fee-based iOS apps for distribution on the App Store.

The iOS Developer Enterprise Program is intended for companies who create proprietary, in-house iOS apps for internal deployment within the company only. A valid Dun & Bradstreet (D-U-N-S) number is required for program enrollment.

The iOS Developer University Program is a free program designed for higher education institutions looking to introduce curriculum for developing iOS apps.

I don't have a D-U-N-S Number. Can I still apply to the iOS Developer Enterprise Program?

No. A Dun & Bradstreet (D-U-N-S) Number is required for enrollment in the iOS Developer Enterprise Program. If your company does not currently have a D-U-N-S number, your company will need to obtain one from Dun & Bradstreet prior to enrolling in the program.
