Install the gem

sudo gem install deliver

Make sure, you have the latest version of the Xcode command line tools installed:

xcode-select --install

Quick Start

The guide will create all the necessary files for you, using the existing app metadata from iTunes Connect.

  • cd [your_project_folder]
  • deliver init
  • Enter your iTunes Connect credentials
  • Enter your app identifier
  • Enjoy a good drink, while the computer does all the work for you

From now on, you can run deliver to deploy a new update, or just upload new app metadata and screenshots.

Already using deliver and just updated to 1.0? Check out the Migration Guide.


Check out your local ./fastlane/metadata and ./fastlane/screenshots folders (if you don't use fastlane it's ./metadata instead)


You'll see your metadata from iTunes Connect. Feel free to store the metadata in git (not the screenshots). You can now modify it locally and push the changes back to iTunes Connect.

Run deliver to upload the app metadata from your local machine


Provide the path to an ipa file to upload and submit your app for review:

deliver --ipa "App.ipa" --submit_for_review

If you use fastlane you don't have to manually specify the path to your ipa file.

This is just a small sub-set of what you can do with deliver, check out the full documentation in

A detailed description about your credentials is available on a separate repo.

How does this thing even work? Is magic involved? 🎩

Your password will be stored in the Mac OS X keychain, but can also be passed using environment variables. (More information available on CredentialsManager)

Before actually uploading anything to iTunes, deliver will generate a HTML summary of the collected data.

deliver uses the following techniques under the hood:

  • The iTMSTransporter tool is used to upload the binary to iTunes Connect. iTMSTransporter is a command line tool provided by Apple.
  • For all metadata related actions deliver uses spaceship
