The Apple credentials not working while expo build:ios

When I try to build iOS, it says “Invalid username and password combination, try again.”
But I can login in browser with the same credential.
The password doesn’t have any space or special signals, only containing letters and numbers.
Not sure why.

You might need to create an app specific password: Sign in to apps with your Apple ID using app-specific passwords - Apple Support

Not sure if this is relevant anymore because last time I built my app I didn’t need an app specific password. But I have run into the problem before where I couldn’t use my normal password but instead had to create an app specific password before I built my app.

Could you also try upgrading your expo-cli? Your version is a bit outdated. The current is 4.4.1.

I have the app specific password that I created before. But it doesn’t require it when I try to execute expo build:ios now. Thanks anyway.

I updated expo-cli and it solved my headache. Thank you for your advice.
