Testing Apps with TestFlight

Help developers test beta versions of their apps using the TestFlight app. Download TestFlight on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

Getting Started

To test beta versions of apps using TestFlight, you’ll need to accept an email or public link invitation from the developer and have a device that you can use to test.

Members of the developer’s team in App Store Connect can be added and will have access to all builds of the app.

All other invited testers will have access to builds that the developer makes available to them. A developer can invite you to test with an email or a public link invitation.

Required platforms.

  • iOS apps: iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8 or later. iMessage apps and sticker packs require iOS 10 or later.
  • tvOS apps: Apple TV running tvOS 9 or later.
  • watchOS apps: Apple Watch running watchOS 2 or later.

Testing

Each build is available to test for up to 90 days, starting from the day the developer uploads their build. You can see how many days you have left for testing under the app name in TestFlight. TestFlight will notify you each time a new build is available and will include instructions on what you need to test.

All in-app purchases are free during the testing period.

Testing Multiple Builds

  1. Go to the app’s page in TestFlight.
  2. Tap on Previous Builds.
  3. Tap and install the build you want to test. The one you select will replace what you currently have installed.

Giving Feedback

While testing a beta version of an app, you can send the developer feedback about issues you experience or make suggestions for improvements based on the “What to Test” content. When you submit feedback through TestFlight, this information is also provided to Apple as part of the TestFlight service.

iOS Apps

If your device is running iOS 12.3 or earlier, tap Send Feedback to compose an email to the developer. The feedback email contains detailed information about the app and about your iOS device. You can also provide additional information, such as necessary screenshots and steps required to reproduce any issues. Your email address will be visible to the developer when you send email feedback through the TestFlight app.

If your device is running iOS 13 beta, you can send feedback through the TestFlight app or directly from the beta app by taking a screenshot, and you can report a crash after it occurs. If you were invited to test an app with a public link, you can choose not to provide your email address or other personal information to the developer. Apple will also receive all feedback you submit and will be able to tie it to your Apple ID.

Sending Feedback through the TestFlight App (iOS 13 beta)

  1. Open the TestFlight app on your device.
  2. From the Apps list, tap the app.
  3. Tap Send Beta Feedback.

Sending Feedback through the Beta App (iOS 13 beta)

When you take a screenshot while testing a beta app, you can send the screenshot with feedback directly to the developer without leaving the app. Developers can opt out of receiving this type of feedback, so this option is only available if the developer has it enabled.

  1. Take a screenshot on your device. For details, see How to take a screenshot on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
  2. A thumbnail of your screenshot appears in the lower-left corner of your device. Tap the thumbnail and, if needed, add drawings and text with Markup. Then tap on the Done button.
  3. Tap the Share Beta Feedback.
  4. Optionally, you can add comments (up to 2,000 characters), and your email address if you were invited with a public link.
  5. Tap Submit.

Sending Crash Information (iOS 13 beta)

If you experience a crash while testing a beta app, you’ll see an alert asking if you want to send crash details to the developer through TestFlight. Developers can opt out of receiving this type of feedback, so this option is only available if the developer has it enabled.

When the crash alert displays, tap Share, add any additional comments, and tap Submit.

Contacting the Developer

If you need to contact the developer while you’re testing their beta app for reasons other than feedback, you can view their email address. From an app’s page in the TestFlight app, tap App Details from the Information section to view the developer’s email address.

tvOS Apps

To provide feedback on a tvOS app, go to the Information section on the app’s page in TestFlight to find the developer’s email address and send them an email.

Your email address will be visible to the developer when you send email feedback through the TestFlight app.

After Testing

When the testing period is over, you will no longer be able to open the beta build. To install the App Store version of the app, download or purchase the app from the App Store. In-app purchases are free only during beta testing, and any in-app purchases made during testing will not carry over to App Store versions.
