    You could try using VS for Mac, and refer to the following steps:

    1. Downloading the distribution certificate and provisioning profile in your Mac
    2. Double-clicking the certificate (.p12 file) and entering the password. Opening Keychain and making sure this certificate is in Login->My Certificates list.
    3. Double- clicking the provisioning profile, it will be imported to your Mac
    4. Opening your Xamarin.iOS project, going to Properties-> iOS->Bundle Signing window, selecting the Signing Identity(certificate) and the provisioning profile.

    Then, you can archive and publish the app. For more details, refer to IPA Support in Xamarin.iOS - Xamarin | Microsoft Learn
