Hi folks,

In this post we cover how to delete provisioning profiles for iOS application signing. When developing iOS applications, you usually use to sign the application before you can deploy it on mobile devices or publish it to the App Store.

In case you run into a situation where you have one too many provisioning profiles in your Mac as seen in Xcode, RoboVM, etc, how do you delete the profile? Very simple:

Go to ~/Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning\ Profiles/.

Here you will find a list of all provisioning profiles recognized by your computer. if you click on a profile in Finder, you would see some details in the sidebar about the contents of the profile. This may help you recognize the profile more easily. Then simply delete it.

That’s all for now. Till next time, happy software development.
