iOS folder empty after ejecting in SDK 42

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 42
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): all
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on. “expo eject”


I ejected my project in SDK 42 and I got the iOS folder empty. I am on Windows 11, I know it (maybe?) won’t generate a iOS folder, but what should I do now? Rollback the eject on a Windows machine and eject ONLY on a Mac or Linux one?

Thanks for your help.

Hey @raselmat, you are correct that ejecting on Windows will not create the ios directory. You don’t necessarily have to rollback. When you eject again on MacOS or Linux, the eject command will detect that your android directory has been configured.


@adamjnav great! Thank you for your reply

Hey @raselmat

You might want to look into the new Development Client. In theory you don’t need to eject these days.
