Quick help is greatly appreciated.


have you probe command like this?:

ionic build ios --prod --release


Yes albertos, no luck :frowning:


Did you define all your components in app.module ? might be an AOT issue


yes i did define all pages and services in app.module,
it works fine with “ionic build android --prod” and even with “ionic build ios”.
“ionic build ios -prod” - doesnt work :frowning:


No clue.

Try starting a blank project and building it with --prod to see if its an Xcode issue.

And then add each plugin one by one to rule those out.


Tried that as well, created test project, added all plugins .
and --prod works fine.

bt not in my project


I have the same problem. How did you solve it?
