Plex beta app distribution method

ios

#1

How come the Plex iOS Beta is distributed via buddybuild compared to the apple native TestFlight? I would understand if all Plex betas were distributed this way for the apple environment but the beta on Apple TV loads via Testflight


#2

There are some "historical" reasons. Apple TV apps cannot be distributed via Buddybuild, but we're planning on moving iOS betas to Testflight too. There is no date for it yet, though.

With buddybuild having been acquired by Apple I guess this might now happen automatically


#4

No idea if it will happen automatically. When they bought Testflight I think they completely shut down the service until they integrated it in iTunes Connect, so we’re expecting the same here.

We’ll start moving to Testflight soon (no estimated dates yet), to avoid a massive pain if/when that happens :joy:
