iOS infoPlist versus config plugin for photos permission message?

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 45
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

In app.json, I have been using the “infoPlist” item within “ios” section to specify the NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription string for the ImagePicker permissions. I noticed now that the ImagePicker documentation says to use the app.json config plugin to specify this string. Does it matter which place I specify the string: ios->infoPlist or plugins->expo-image-picker? Is there any advantage from doing it one way or the other?

Hey @duggster, as of right now it’s a matter of preference. Both will work as intended. If that changes down the road, we’ll certainly make an announcement to give developers a heads up.
