Expo Image Picker violates SafeAreaView / Too Tall

SDK Version: Expo SDK 42
Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS
Library: Expo-Image-Picker

Did you ever figure this out? I am experiencing this issue as well… Hard to imagine we’re the only ones but this is all I can find discussing it.

For help, this is due to iOS15. Running the software in iOS14 does not cause this issue. This needs to be fixed ASAP!

Yes. It looks like it was a known issue:

And this was recently resolved as I am not seeing this anymore. Try upgrading the SDK and CLI and see if it resolves.

Here is a gif of the behavior.
