Downloading build artifacts

Buddybuild automatically manages your app bundles and dSYMs securely for you. If you wish to deploy your app bundle to your testers and beta users, use the Deployments tab.

If you have not yet uploaded a code signing certificate, buddybuild cannot properly sign your application. This means that a successful build cannot be installed on a device, and so buddybuild does not make the build artifact available for download. This situation does not prevent your tests from running.

Buddybuild can automatically collect your crash reports and symbolicate them with your App’s dSYMs producing human-readable crash reports. To enable this feature, integrate the buddybuild SDK.

You never have to manage your artifacts yourself. However, if you require access to them, download them from the build details page of a specific build:

IPA files can vary in size depending on the intended deployment.

Typically, the IPAs used for on-device testing are relatively small. IPAs for iTunes Connect deployments are notably larger because they have to include bitcode and build output for every distribution architecture. Once an IPA has been uploaded to iTunes Connect, the App Store rebuilds your app into versions optimized for each user’s device.

If you want to verify the IPA size locally, archive your app and then export the archive for "ad hoc" and then App Store distribution. The App Store version will be larger of the two.
