Install the gem

sudo gem install fastlane

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]
  • fastlane 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 fastlane 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 fastlane deliver to upload the app metadata from your local machine

fastlane deliver

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

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

or you can specify path to pkg file for macOS apps:

fastlane deliver --pkg "MacApp.pkg"

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

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

Download existing screenshots from iTunes Connect

fastlane deliver download_screenshots

To get a list of available options run

fastlane deliver --help

Select a previously uploaded build and submit it for review.

fastlane deliver submit_build --build_number 830

Check out for more options.

A detailed description about how your credentials are handled is available in a credentials_manager.

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

Your password will be stored in the macOS 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

Available language codes

no, en-US, en-CA, fi, ru, zh-Hans, nl-NL, zh-Hant, en-AU, id, de-DE, sv, ko, ms, pt-BR, el, es-ES, it, fr-CA, es-MX, pt-PT, vi, th, ja, fr-FR, da, tr, en-GB

Default values

Deliver has a special default language code which allows you to provide values that are not localised, and which will be used as defaults when you don’t provide a specific localised value.

You can use this either in json within your deliverfile, or as a folder in your metadata file.

Imagine that you have localised data for the following language codes: en-US, de-DE, el, it

You can set the following in your deliverfile

  'default' => "Shiny and new”,
  'de-DE' => "glänzend und neu"

Deliver will use "Shiny and new" for en-US, el and it.

It will use "glänzend und neu" for de-DE.

You can do the same with folders


In this case, default values for keywords, urls, name and release notes are used in all localisations, but each language has a fully localised description

Automatically create screenshots

If you want to integrate deliver with snapshot, check out fastlane!

Jenkins integration

Detailed instructions about how to set up deliver and fastlane in Jenkins can be found in the fastlane README.

Firewall Issues

deliver uses the iTunes Transporter to upload metadata and binaries. In case you are behind a firewall, you can specify a different transporter protocol using


HTTP Proxy

iTunes Transporter is a Java application bundled with Xcode. In addition to utilizing the DELIVER_ITMSTRANSPORTER_ADDITIONAL_UPLOAD_PARAMETERS="-t DAV", you need to configure the transporter application to use the proxy independently from the system proxy or any environment proxy settings. You can find the configuration file within Xcode:

TOOLS_PATH=$( xcode-select -p )

Add necessary proxy configuration values to the according to Java Proxy Configuration.

As an alternative to editing the properties files, proxy configuration can be specified on the command line directly:



Apple has a limit of 150 binary uploads per day.

Editing the Deliverfile

Change syntax highlighting to Ruby.
