To upload a React Native app to the Google Play Store (Android) and Apple App Store (iOS), you will need to follow these steps:
- Prepare your app for submission
Before you can submit your app to the app stores, you will need to make sure that it is ready for publication. This includes:
- Ensuring that your app meets the guidelines and requirements of the app stores (for example, it must not contain inappropriate content or violate any intellectual property rights).
- Testing your app thoroughly to ensure that it is stable and reliable.
- Updating your app’s metadata (such as the title, description, and screenshots) to accurately reflect its content and features.
- Sign up for a developer account
To submit your app to the app stores, you will need to sign up for a developer account with each platform. This will require you to provide personal and billing information, as well as agree to the terms and conditions of the respective app store.
For the Google Play Store, you will need to pay a one-time fee of $25. For the Apple App Store, you will need to pay an annual fee of $99.
- Submit your app to the app stores
Once you have prepared your app and set up a developer account, you can submit it to the app stores. This process will vary depending on the platform, but generally, it involves:
- Uploading your app package (an APK file for Android or an IPA file for iOS) and any required graphics and metadata.
- Reviewing and accepting the app store’s terms and conditions.
- Paying any required fees.
