The Flutter app is not starting when I try to use Image_Picker on the IOS side. On the Android side everything works fine.
I have added following permissions inside info.plist.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <!-- for Image Picker --> <key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key> <String>This app requires access to the photo library</String> <key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key> <string>This app requires access to the camera</string> <key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key> <string>This app does not require access to the microphone</string> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>$(DEVELOPMENT_LANGUAGE)</string>
When I remove the above properties form info.plist, the app works fine until I use the camera. But if I add the properties into info.plist the app won’t start.
I am getting following error when I am trying to run the IOS app.
error: unable to read property list from file: /Volumes/abc/projects/new/iconspro/ios/Runner/Info.plist: The operation couldn’t be completed. (XCBUtil.PropertyListConversionError error 1.) (in target ‘Runner’ from project ‘Runner’)

Could not build the application for the simulator.
Error launching application on iPhone 8 Plus.
It seems that my first guess was not completely off. I am using the image_picker plugin in my project as well and was able to produce a bunch of errors by changing the tag from string
<key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key> <string>This app requires access to the camera.</string>
<key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key> <String>This app requires access to the camera.</String>
Therefore i recommend to pay attention to the casing of your tags.
Make sure all
<string> tags are lower cased.
