System permissions dialog question


In the docs:

It says “Because these strings are configured at the native level, they will only be published when you build a new binary with exp build.”

Does this mean there is no way to test that the strings in my app.json work?

I’ve added strings under ios.infoPlist for both NSPhotoLibraryAddUsageDescription and NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription but I’d like to test that I’ve added them correctly before submitting to the app store.

Is this possible?


Hey @moultz,

You won’t be able to test it in the Expo Client, but you could build an IPA and upload it to TestFlight to test and ensure your permission strings are accurate and as expected.
