once registered to the development plan, can you test it on other devices that are not set under your apple id?

Before I register for the Apples development plan just wanted to make sure...

Once I have the development plan certificate under, my Apple id, can I test my app on iPhones/iPads that are not registered under my apple id?

Currently I am still rolling with the 4S, however I understand that this is an outdated device for testing apps. Would I be able to test apps on my friend's device (iPhone 5s). My only doubt is that he has got his own apple ID, and I am wondering whether it would work? since his iPhone's Apple id is not sync'ed with my development plan Apple id...

Appreciate any help or suggestion

Hey Shir you sure can run it on your friends phone but you need to add the UDID number of the iPhone into the apple dev center under Devices. <p> You can find the UDID number of a device by going to Xcode then window and then select your friends device and then copy and paste the Identifier into your new device that you are setting up in apple dev center :) </p>

Thank you Russell I'll give it a try :)
