App id with identifier <app_identifier> is not available. Please enter a different string.

I’m getting this error when attempting to submit an ios build to the Apple Store and suspect it is because I initially tried to do an expo build:ios with a different Apple ID that wasn’t linked to a paid developer account…

$ expo build:ios
[18:27:07] Checking if current build exists…

[18:27:08] No currently active or previous builds for this project.
? How would you like to upload your credentials?
Expo handles all credentials, you can still provide overrides

We need your Apple ID/password to manage certificates and
provisioning profiles from your Apple Developer account.

Note: Expo does not keep your Apple ID or your Apple password.

? What’s your Apple ID?
? Password? [hidden]
[18:27:33] Validating Credentials…
[18:27:38] Error while gathering & validating credentials
[18:27:38] You have no team ID associated with your apple account, cannot proceed.
(Do you have a paid Apple developer Account?)

I’m happy to use a different identifier but wanted to check whether it is OK for it to be different from the android one? I.e. to have e.g…

“ios”: {
“supportsTablet”: true,
“bundleIdentifier”: “org.buxtonfringe.fringeapp-ios”
“android”: {
“package”: “org.buxtonfringe.fringeapp”,



Hey @buxtonfringe! It’s okay for the Android package and the IOS bundleIdentifier to be different :+1:

Many thanks - we’ll give it a whirl :slight_smile:
