What is an XCARCHIVE file?
Xcode archives are created by choosing Product → Archive from the application menu with an open project. The archives can be viewed in the Xcode Organizer window by choosing the Archives tab. From this view, you can click the Submit... button to submit the archive for review.
XCARCHIVE files are saved to the ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Archives/ directory.
