iOS - Standalone build failed!


Hi there,

I am failing with ios standalone builds, here some details:

exp: 53.1.0
sdk: 24.0.0

ios build failed, I don’t get any error that I can work with, would you take a look and assist here?
tried with EXPO_DEBUG=true, still nothing :frowning:

hi @oren, that’s really weird – usually the actual error should be surfaced. I’ve dug through these logs on our end, and I’ll email you the details of the errors we are seeing.


Sure, many thanks, looking forward for your email.


Just saw it, thanks.


Well, thanks for your help, I confirm that it was something related to the certificates, for some reason it failed with the certs stored on exp account.


Glad you got it resolved!
