Xcode - symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64 (iOS Lib)


I had the same trouble with building static library.
Finally I have found the basic solution. (You need to build universal library for x86_64/armv7/armv7s/arm64)

enter image description here

1) Click on the project file
2) Click on the target
3) Open "Build Phases"
4) Open "Run Script"
5) Add "/bin/sh" and the script below

6) Hit "cmd + B" (Build Project)

7) Open Product in Finder

8) Navigate 1 directory up ("cmd + ↑"), and you will see "Release-universal" directory.enter image description here

There will be your "fat/universal" library, You are ready to go!


I encountered this with a framework lib I'm using in one of my apps, when I tried to test it in iPhone Retina 64bit simulator.

I simply added x86_64 as an architecture to build for and set it to always build for all architectures. Worked a charm.

The lipo tool can not only create fat mach-o binaries, but it can inspect them:xcrun lipo -info /path/to/libThing.a

This will output what architectures are in the file. Before you join binaries using lipo, run this to make sure the architectures you expect are present. It's also a good idea to run this on the product of a fat binary join.

In your case you need:

iPhoneSDK Configuration:armv7, armv7s, arm64

iPhoneSimulator Configuration:i386, x86_64

It seems that the iPhoneSimulator build product is not producing an x86_64 binary based on your question. Check your build configuration - in particular, "Build Active Architectures Only" (ONLY_ACTIVE_ARCH ) should be set to NO. The default is for this to be NO for Release, but YES for debug. If it is YES, only one architecture will be in the build product.
