Important: This article is only relevant to conference organizers who wish to install the proof version of their EventPilot Pro branded or multi-event shell app on their iOS device. 


When installing the proof app on an Apple device running iOS 16 or newer, you may encounter a pop-up stating that you must enable the Developer Mode setting in order to run the proof app. 

This is a security measure. More info: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/xcode/enabling-developer-mode-on-a-device


If you're not sure what version of iOS you're running, please refer to this article from Apple: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201685


To enable Developer Mode, follow the instructions in the pop-up or:

  1. Access the Settings on your iOS device
  2. Locate Privacy & Security
  3. Scroll down to Developer Mode > tap it
  4. Toggle Developer Mode ON
  5. Confirm
  6. Your device will restart. You should now be able to run the proof app.


Note: On iOS 16.1 or newer, this setting is hidden until you install a proof app, so please wait to try these steps until that point.
