No developer team error when building for iOS

I’m building an app with Expo for iOS with expo build:ios but I am getting this error message:

Trying to authenticate with Apple Developer Portal…
Authenticated with Apple Developer Portal successfully!
Authentication with Apple Developer Portal failed!
You have no team associated with your Apple account, cannot proceed.
(Do you have a paid Apple Developer account?)

Do I need to have a paid account or how can I build iOS apps from my mac?

Is there no way to build for iOS without a paid account? Im just trying out building apps so at the moment it feels like overkill to get an paid account just to try to install a simple app on my phone.

It works without problems on Android


Hi @haangglide- unfortunately, you can’t build the actual binaries for iOS without a paid Apple developer account :frowning:
