Xcode Beta and a Paid Apple Developer account is required to use ARKit 1.5 Features
Due to App Store restrictions, we can not release a Testbed application with ARKit 1.5 Features, as a result, to use ARKit 1.5 Features, you'll need to follow the instructions below to setup your device and Xcode Beta to build your application.
Have you already set up Xcode?
Run through all the steps in the Set up Xcode with ViroReact guide before running through this one.
Go to this link and install Xcode 9.3 Beta: https://developer.apple.com/xcode/downloads/
If you do this, you can no longer install to the device using previous versions of Xcode (non-Beta).
On your iOS device, navigate to this page: https://developer.apple.com/download/ and install the Configuration Profile for iOS 11.3 Beta
<your_project>/ios/Podfile and change the following line:
Then navigate to
<your_project>/ios/ in the Terminal and run:
<your_project>/ios/<your_project>.xcworkspace in Xcode Beta and you should be set!
ARKit 1.5 is not publicly available so apps built using ARKit 1.5/Xcode Beta can not be submitted to the App Store and released until Apple officially releases Xcode 9.3 and iOS 11.3 w/ ARKit 1.5.
If you need to release your application, simply undo step 3 above and open/rebuild your application using a non-beta version of Xcode. The Viro React components using ARKit 1.5 features will simply not appear, but no crashes should occur.
