How To Add Our Publishing Team To Your Apple Developer Account As An Admin
Due to a recent change in Apple’s guidelines, all Apple developer accounts are now required to have two factor authentication enabled in them. This can add additional time to the app submission and resubmission process which is why we recommend that you add us as an Admin to your Apple developer account which allows us to bypass that requirement.
Note: this is only effective on app resubmissions. If your app is being submitted for the first time, you’ll still need to schedule a time for our publishing team to call you and obtain the two factor authentication code. While on that call you can give our publishing team permission to add themselves as an Admin to help expedite future resubmissions.

Your Apple Developer Account is what’s required for your iOS app to be available in the Apple App Store. Before you can add us to your Apple Developer Account, you’ll have to create an account first.
