Updating, Removing and Deleting iOS Applications

To distribute an app update, you must update the version number and URL for the app in the App Catalog. For an in-house app, you must host the App (.ipa file) on a web server and include the address where the app is hosted. To install an App Store app update, users must enter an Apple ID. Updates are distributed in the same way that you distributed the app.

To remove an app, remove one or more devices from the scope. To delete an app, remove it from your App Catalog.
