Expo Not Registering Code Changes

  1. SDK Version: 36
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS

I deleted and updated code from a project. While using the iOS simulator, the old code is still being executed. I am getting errors because new code won’t work with the old code. The debugger shows old lines of code that do not exist in the project anymore.

I have cleared all of my caches, reinstalled expo on the simulator and restarted my computer. I ran expo upgrade even though I’m up to date. Nothing has worked. I’ve noticed this twice now after upgrading to SDK 36.

I commented out most of a component, and it still appears with the commented out info in the simulator.

Any direction would be appreciated because I can’t develop until this is solved.

It might be a hot reloading issue where saved changes aren’t being registered.

I got this working by resetting the iOS simulator, but I did that twice and only on the second time did it make a difference.
