I built an app with Expo SDK 37. Everything is working on iOS and Android, but after an update where I implemented Firebase FireStore, update Expo SDK to version 38 and dependencies, I have an issue with iOS.

It’s working on Android physical and emulator devices and on iOS physical device with the Expo client app.

But when I build the IPA file and submit it to Apple Store with TestFlight, the application crashed 1 second after seeing the SplashScreen.

I tried to disable FireStore or SplashScreen, add an ErrorBoundary to find the bug without success.

I’m on Windows 10, so I can’t test the app on real Apple device with XCode without submitting it to Apple developer program. I don’t find another way to manually install IPA file on my iOS device to test and debug faster.

The only thing I have is this error log:

Exception Type: EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT)

Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000

Is there a way to debug my IPA file on Windows or install it on my device without using Transporter? I heard about Diawi but I don’t really trust. How can the app crashed when I install it but not when I launch it with Expo start on the same iOS device?

THanks for your answers and your help!

I have the same problem, Did you find any solution?
