Getting ios.csr from Apple

Attaining ios.csr from Apple is not so easy it seems. They want me to open a developer account at cost of $99 per year. What have I done wrong? Is there another way to get the ios.csr?

Yes, you have to have a developer account from Apple to get certificates. It costs $99 USD per year.

Also, you can’t publish to App Store without a developer account.
