I still use the "Application Loader" from time to time, because the transporter doesn't always work.

Ya, I tried a few times to upload an app yesterday using Transporter. The app only 3.7MB in size.

i use it for about the last 6 months.

i don't have this option anymore. i am using xcode 11.5.
since xcode 11 application loader is missing so apple introduced 3 other ways to upload ipa files.
Transporter seems for me to be the best way.

it's the best option for me too, only sometimes my Mac mini says that the login doesn't work, or something like that.

yes i know what you mean. the fix for this is to go to icloud settings and uncheck everything. the restart the mac and it should work. this is a know bug.

you can install xcode 10+ in parallel.
i also use xcode 11+ for B4x. ;)

I got a tip from Apple Support today; restart the Mac mini in Safe Mode and the problem will be resolved.

I tested today and it worked. :)

iCloud and the keychain stuff it supports is just about the buggiest pile of junk I've seen from Apple. Some days it logs me out a few times. I thought originally it was because I had a really old mac.com address I used for it, so created a new one with a different domain, but it's still hopeless. Just as well I have all my passwords stored in LastPass, because I can't rely on keychain providing them to apps that think they've saved info. Honestly, at this stage, I would run a mile before implementing "Sign in with Apple" in an app, because my experience of AppleID leaves me thinking I'd be deluged with support requests for something I couldn't resolve.

Meanwhile, more pertinent to the thread, in this thread I posted a shell script, which is what I usually use now to upload to AppStore Connect. At least I know, since the app-specific password is in the script, that I'm not going to open Transporter and find my credentials missing again.
