The specific steps are both non-trivial and a moving target, changing
with new versions of iOS and developer tools. A new version just
came out, so my experience is out of date, but with each version,
there is a way. If you would really like the specific details of
the current method, I can investigate that and get back to you. If
its enough to see a recent method, you can look here:


I know you’re short on time and not overly fond of web-based resources
in general, but this one is readable in eww. I certainly did not
mean to imply that it was *easy*, but my understanding and (not
incredibly-old experience) is that it is possible. Certainly, the
vast majority of developers simply sign up for the license, at least
once. For most peoples intended use, its a practical requirement.

Hope that helps,
