Can someone please help me with the steps to start setup and install MPOS on an iOS device.
I did read the MS document.
I've completed the pre-requisites and setups, also created a new device with application type = Retail Modern POS - iOS.
I'm not sure why the download options are disabled.
Hi Sneha,What register settings and application type are set for the device?Does the Download button appear if you click Save on the formThank you in advance.

To use the mpos on ios you have to first make the hybrid app and on this hybrid app you have to register the CPOS url.
Also required SSL certificate to register this app.
follow the below steps
Setup and install Xamarin on iOS
After connecting to mac and building the application in Visual Studio, we need to select the iOS device type and deploy the app on selected device.
I’ll try these steps to install MPOS
Thanks for the revert!!
I did save the form multiple times.
@TodB I know this is an old thread but I am interested whether the "download modern pos" button is intended to be working for iOS at all?? You as a MSTF engineer should know that right? I only know the (quite complex) solution pointed out above.
If there is a way to donwload an already compiled IPA file like it is written here, I would really love to know:
If the application wasn't downloaded directly to the device, transfer the downloaded app file and the associated configuration file to the same folder on the device. Depending on the type of device, the app file will be an APPX, APK, or IPA file.
Thank you very much!
Incorrect information removed.
thanks for your answer! Could you please elaborate a little bit more on how you would assign the app to the register? I did not find an upload functionality when I was checking our environment which is on v16.
Could you maybe also let me know why we have to compile the app ourselves and MSTF is not providing us with the IPA file straight away?
Sorry for the confusion.
I found out that the initial information I received was incorrect.
In testing, if you set a Device to the "Retail Modern POS - iOS" application type, the package field where you would pick the self service installer to download disappears; and the download option is grayed out.
Therefore, downloading of the iOS app from D365 is not possible.
For other devices, the answer would be to upload the installer to LCS and synchronize them to D365, but that doesn't apply to the hybrid app (iOS / Android).
Set up POS hybrid app on Android and iOS
I have no information as to why a built hybrid app is not shipped; and would recommend you enter this as a product suggestion on the Ideas portal:
A similar idea found on the portal is:
Add CPOS as a Hybrid App in Apple AppStore
Thanks It worked for me!
Thanks for the post! I could successfully launch the Hybrid App on Android tablet. But stuck with an issue with Hybrid App on iPad.
I have added the retail server url to the tursted sites, still it does not authenticate,
Below is the error message,
How to resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance!
please try to use a differen webbrowser or try to setup a new POS device and register. That solved this error for me some time ago...
I have the same error after setting up a new device and register. I am doing it using a iPad emulator, and cannot find how to trust sites in iPad.
i dont think it is related to trusted site..we did not change anything regarding trusted sites to solve that issue back in the days...you could also try to open a CPOS from the ipad emulator and see what happens. You could also try to activate the device using a different user account.
I tried with a different user login, still same issue. Also, tried opening the CPOS in Safari browser, and got the same error.
To use the mpos on ios you have to first make the hybrid app and on this hybrid app you have to register the CPOS url. Also required SSL certificate to register this app. Download and install Xcode from and add your Apple ID as described on Adding Your Account to XCode (apple.com).
