App Size on App Store iOS pretty big (80mb for an ipa file of 192mb)

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 35
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android / iOS


I know the size of the app subject has been treated numerous time, however I do not manage to find an explanation for my personal case.

On Android everything is fine, especially using the app bundle function:

  • aab file was 50Mb and app on store is 17Mb

On iOS is the issue:

  • ipa file is 192Mb which I understand is pretty normal due to bitcode
  • app to download on App store is 80mb which seems very much disproportionate.

I am using the managed workflow and was wondering if there would be a way to be closer to the size of the app in the Play Store on iOS. While I don’t mind around 30mb, 80mb seems a lot and not in relation with the complexity of the app.

I looked for ressources online and in the forum but didn’t find anything regarding a managed workflow app to reduce its size.

Also to note, seems the app size doubles on the App Store by going from Skd 33 to 35.

Best and thanks in advance.
