How to upload a dSYM when using Bitcode

« Go Back


With the release of Xcode 7, Apple introduced App Thinning and Bitcode as an option. Apteligent began to support bitcode with its newest SDKs per the release notes. If your app uses bitcode, you will need to use Xcode's  Crashes Organizer to obtain the dSYM files manually:

1)  To download the dSYM file from XCode, go to the XCode Organizer:
