Developer Sarina DuPont from Embarcadero has a blog post up highlighting a change that Apple made to the IOS IPA file format requirements in IOS 8.1.3. Basically in order to install apps in IOS 8.1.3 they have to have a new piece of information added to the Entitlements file which gets compiled in the IOS IPA. This change is required for both Enterprise and App Store IPA files. Sarina’s blog post covers three different ways you can make this change to the Entitlements file which gets compiled in Delphi XE7 Firemonkey and Appmethod apps for IOS. The information that you add to the Entitlements file can be a combination of your Apple Developer Program Id which is a 10 character ID like 2EHNI3635M, a dot, and then either your App ID (ModuleName) or an App ID wildcard. The blog post has detailed instructions on where you find these two pieces of information. Here is a sample Entitlement.TemplateiOS.xml file that worked for me and our Enterprise application. It uses a wildcard App ID (com.embarcadero.*): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
