Hello

A private company call me to develop ios apps but they don't want their apps to be pushed in the ios store, I am honest, i only have experience with b4a & b4j not b4i and the process involved to publish or install apps to ios devices.

This company tell me that a previous developer was working with Cydia Impactor and according to my research the cydia impactor is able to install apps without App Store and No Jailbreak.

The b4i apps to develop are special needs to this particular private company and their different locations.

My question is, Is there a way to Install b4i ipa files to ios devices without publising to apple store?

Somebody can give me a light to work with this kind of companies please?

This private company maybe is looking not to paid the apple anual fees.

Thank you

To install the App:


Edit:

Just one idea:
Open an Apple Account, pay that Apple account for 1 year to developer the App for your client then install the App in your client users using:

If you can get the device udid from the users then you can host the ipa in your hosting server. Otherwise, you can use TestFlight app to let users install as testing app.

That means that i don't need to publish to the apple store right?


Yes. It is required.
There is no way to do not pay this fee right?

Yes.
You can follow the steps explained in SO below. Just ignore the steps for Beta Builder.
