Cannot access Document Directory with FileSystem? (iOS)

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 41.0.1
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS

On Android this works: I check if a file in the documents directory exists, and if it does not I create a resumable download and place it there. And I believe it used to work on iOS but I can’t confirm easily.

On iOS I’ve tried 2 different ways:

  1. The getInfoAsync() function tells me the document directory is not readable

Here’s what I get if I console log

[Error: File 'file:/var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/C4EC8DD9-3D86-452A-8176-6DC3ED3F4697/Documents/006916c4-716d-42c3-8823-9585580b1aad_AA%20Heaps%20Dwg%20Markups-6.jpg -- file:///' isn't readable.]

Here’s the JSON stringified version of the error to show the stack trace (the remote file is prefixed with a uuid)

  1. If I create a subdirectory and try to download to it I get this error instead despite providing the local URI
Error: Directory for 'file:///var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/C4EC8DD9-3D86-452A-8176-6DC3ED3F4697/Documents/my app name/MY FILE NAME.jpg' doesn't exist. Please make sure directory '(null)' exists before calling downloadAsync.

Any Suggestions on how to make this work on iOS? Thanks!
