iOS - IPA file upload error messages

Error message or simple warning?

When you upload your ipa file, Apple informs you that the file has been successfully uploaded.
However, you can sometimes have some errors or warnings from Apple.

You must pay attention to whether it's an error or merely a warning:

- The error message is blocking means your .ipa hasn't been sent to Apple. It is preceded by a red sign.
- A warning is an informational message that won't block your submission.
Apple is simply giving you information. It is preceded by a yellow triangle.
If the window only displays a warning and not an error, you can carry on with the submission of your application normally.

Below, you will find the different possible errors and the procedure to follow when they occur.

ERROR ITMS-4238: Redundant Binary Upload

This error indicates that you are trying to send for the second time an .ipa already received by Apple. 

Apple doesn't allow for the same .ipa to be sent several times, because the file is already in your iTunes Connect account, ignore that error message and carry on normally with the submission of the .ipa file which is already in iTunes Connect.

ERROR ITMS 90101: "This bundle doesn't support one or more of the devices supported by the previous app version".

This error occurs after an update. It indicates that the new version of your application isn’t compatible with all the devices compatible with the previous version.
Generally, this indicates that your application included an iPad version, which isn’t the case with the update you are trying to submit.

Apple won’t allow the update if compatibility isn’t provided for all devices.

Contact the support and attach a screenshot of the error message.
