When you build a project for an Apple platform (Mac OS X or iOS), Appmethod generates an Apple application information file. This file is necessary to generate the bundle of your application.

Apple application information files are property list files with essential configuration information for Apple platforms. The file content is generated from several sources, including your project configuration (see Version Info), compiler options (see "Minimum iOS version supported" in Linking) or your SDK. The Apple application information file is generated as an XML file containing keys and associated values; for deployment, the XML file is converted to binary.

When you build your project, your Apple application information file is generated by default as <project>.info.plist into the following folder:

  • In packages:
    Note: You do not need an Apple application information file for packages.
    • For Object Pascal: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\Bpl\<platform>
    • For C++:
      • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\Bpl\<platform>\<build configuration>
      • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\DCP\<platform>\<build configuration>
  • In other projects: C:\Users\<user>\Documents\Studio\Projects\<project>\<platform>\<build configuration>
