iOS - Add an extra iOS device to test the ad hoc version (native)

The Ad-Hoc version is the exact replica of the app that will be published to the store. 
You can download this version directly to your device.   
This is the version you should use to test before submitting the final version of the app to the store for review. 

The UDID (Unique Device Identifier) of the device needs to be registered in the ad-hoc version to be able to download the app to the device.
