  6. Select App Store and click Continue.
  7. Select an App ID to associate with the provisioning profile and click Continue.
  8. Select one or more certificates for distribution to include in the provisioning profile and click Continue.
    Only certificates for distribution are listed.
  9. Enter a name for the profile and click Continue.
  10. (Optional) Click Download to download the provisioning profile.
