My app crashes on screen launch - Unity 2017.2.0f3 and Xcode 10.2 (10E125)

Hello guys,

I don’t usually ask on any forum so i’m kinda new here. So, I am trying to build my game on Xcode 10.2 (10E125) from Unity 2017.2.0f3 and I’m getting these errors on Xcode. My build on Unity always finishes as succeded and the game works perfectly on the editor… I would like to know if any of you had the same problem as me and if you have a solution I would be very very happy.

By the way, I can build on Xcode aswell on my iPhone 8Plus iOS 12.2 but it crashes when I try to launch the game.

Thank you very much, Alex.

like the error says, you have to set GADApplicationIdentifier in the xcode plist settings

hopefully theres a way to do it in unity, as it is very annoying having to do that every build

I finally found a solution! I made 2 things to build correctly…
As max-pi said GADApplicationIdentifier was one of them. I opened the Info.plist archive and I wrote the appID on GADApplicationIdentifier but doing that I still had one issue with pods…

The other one was a problem with the Google AdMob SDK:

target ‘Unity-iPhone’ do

pod ‘Google-Mobile-Ads-SDK’, ‘~> 7.41’


You have to put this in the podfile which is inside your build project and make a simple “pod install” instruction on the terminal and that’s it.

I didn’t have to do that with my other projects but well hope someone find this usefull
