The Mapbox iOS SDK supports CocoaPods as an installation
option. If you’re already using CocoaPods, this lets you manage Mapbox like
you do your existing dependencies.
While CocoaPods can be convenient, it can also be unpredictable. Try following
these tips to debug installation issues:
Use the last stable version of CocoaPods. Beta versions are not recommended for
use with the Mapbox iOS SDK.
If pod install gives you an “Unable to find a specification” error, try running pod repo update first.
When you run pod install, CocoaPods generates an xcworkspace file that includes its configuration.
The xcworkspace file has a white background, unlike the xcodeproj file with a blue background.
Make sure you’re opening this file and not the original Xcode project.
If you see the error Mapbox.h not found, this can typically be resolved by building your application despite the error.
If you’re getting a permission error or having trouble installing CocoaPods
itself, consult the CocoaPods troubleshooting documentation.
If you’re still having issues using Mapbox with CocoaPods, please contact support
with the complete details of the issue, including error messages.
If you have installed the Mapbox iOS SDK manually, you may see an App Store bug that results in the following error when submitting your application to the App Store:
ERROR ITMS-90087: Unsupported Architectures. The executable for YourApp.app/Frameworks/Mapbox.framework contains unsupported architectures ‘[x86_64, i386]’
To circumvent this, you’ll need to add the following script in the Build Phases tab of your project:
The Mapbox iOS SDK requires Xcode 7.3 or above, but we recommend Xcode 8.0 or above. If you’re using Xcode 6.x or below, you’ll need to update Xcode. To use the SDK with Xcode 7.3, download a -symbols build from the releases page.
