Hi Jérôme, 

We have a separate Info.plist for command line build, it should solve the bundle ID issue. I don’t remember exactly the details, it was couple of years ago. But I did check - there is an Info.plist in the repository. I suspect Qt Creator generates one too, but I rely on the one from Xcode.

But I seem to be missing something into my way of doing it (I managed to do it for Android, armv7/armv8 .apk and .aab). Here is my steps raw command line steps (not the provisioning, certificate and the keychain are installed and work with a Xamarin and Unity application with the same setup, the question is not about those parts).

Did I miss a step?!
