eas submit to iOS App Store rejected with Invalid build number error

Managed eas project with latest SDK and CLI

Trying to submit a build to TestFlight in AppStore Connect, but the eas submit command is failing with the error Invalid build number:

The app.json information is as follows:

“ios”: {
“supportsTablet”: true,
“bundleIdentifier”: “”,
“buildNumber”: “1.0.28”,
“usesIcloudStorage”: true,

The previous build (1.0.27) was accepted. Build 1.0.28 has never been submitted before.

What would cause this error to happen, and how can I fix it?


looking at your builds, there seems to be an inconsistency in how you are using build number:



i would personally suggest enabling remote version source for builds so you never have to think about the build number again. App version management - Expo Documentation

It looks like the Version value is invalid for iOS. Thanks for the suggestion to enable remote version source for builds. We will definitely do that.

thanks for the update! i made a task for us to validate the CFBundleShortVersionString when running eas build
