Code signing iOS frameworks Tweet
Developing iOS frameworks¶
When you are developing an iOS framework you have to distribute a code signed version of your framework, however you don't need to sign it with your
Distribution profile, the
Developer profile will be enough.
After distribution the framework will be re-codesigned by the frameworks' consumer during the code signing process.1
If you attempt to build it without code signing Xcode won't produce a
.framework file and you will receive the following error:
CodeSign error: code signing is required for product type 'Framework' in SDK 'iOS 10.2'
Using an iOS framework¶
As a framework consumer you have to sign the framework during the signing process, otherwise your build will fail.
