I've been using Appery.io to build a simple contact reader. I've followed the tutorial and have the latest libraries for the app development. The app is simple, it reads the phone's contacts and displays them in a list. The app works in Appery.io on IOS/IPhone, however, when I publish the app to the Apple Store Connect using TestFlight the app fails to read the contacts from the IPhone.
I checked the Appery.io general settings including ones under the IOS Binary/Keys and I don't see any issues with misconfiguration. The app works well in the android environment deployed as an apk. I suspect the IOS side there is a missing permission request for contact reading. I don't see the setting in Appery.io for IOS with regards to that. Is this a limitation of Appery.io? Do I need to modify the config.xml to allow for IOS to enable permissions to read the contacts from an IPhone?
I recall in another thread that the Appery.io tester and the actual deploying of the app can behave differently, so I can understand that, however, I don't see why there isn't a setting on the IOS side in Appery.io to indicate read contact permissions is needed. So I'm not sure how to indicate that (assuming that is the main issue here)
Thanks in advance!
