"Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Intermediate Certificate Expiration
To help protect customers and developers, we require that all third-party apps, passes for Apple Wallet, Safari Extensions, Safari Push Notifications, and App Store purchase receipts are signed by a trusted certificate authority. The Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certificate Authority issues the certificates you use to sign your software for Apple devices, allowing our systems to confirm that your software is delivered to users as intended and has not been modified.
The current Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certification Intermediate Certificate (intermediate certificate) is set to expire on February 7, 2023. The renewed certificate will be used to sign new software signing certificates issued after January 28, 2021 for the Apple Developer Programs. Remaining service certificates will be updated in the future and this page will be updated to reflect additional certificate changes.
This change impacts members of the Apple Developer Program and Apple Developer Enterprise Program who develop for macOS, iOS, tvOS, or watchOS. Download the renewed certificate and follow the instructions below.
Enterprise iOS Distribution Certificates generated after September 1, 2020, require the new intermediate certificate to be installed on all machines that code sign with this certificate. This impacts developers in the Apple Developer Enterprise Program.
This requirement also impacts all software signing certificates generated after January 28, 2021, by developers with Personal accounts in Xcode, as well as members of the Apple Developer Program, Apple Developer Enterprise Program, and iOS University Developer Program.
The new Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Intermediate Certificate is downloaded automatically by Xcode 11.4.1 or later and is available for download on the Certificate Authority page. Confirm that the correct intermediate certificate is installed by verifying that the expiration date is set to 2030.
Xcode 11.4.0 and earlier may not be able to sign software using signing certificates issued by the new Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certification Intermediate Certificate. If you’re unable to upgrade to a supporting version of macOS or Xcode on your build machine, you can build and archive your app using an earlier Xcode client and sign it for distribution using the latest release. Alternatively, you can utilize the codesign tool to sign your software using the command line."
