I am trying to simulate my Flutter app with the Xcode iPhone Simulator and I get this error. Before upgrading Android Studio and Xcode it was working fine.

Launching lib/main.dart on iPhone X in debug mode...
Starting Xcode build...
Xcode build done.
Failed to build iOS app
Error output from Xcode build:
    ** BUILD FAILED **

Xcode's output:
    error: Multiple commands produce '/Users/User/AndroidStudioProjects/my_app/build/ios/Debug-iphonesimulator/Runner.app/Frameworks/Flutter.framework':
    1) Target 'Runner' has copy command from '/Users/User/AndroidStudioProjects/my_app/ios/Flutter/Flutter.framework' to '/Users/User/AndroidStudioProjects/my_app/build/ios/Debug-iphonesimulator/Runner.app/Frameworks/Flutter.framework'
    2) That command depends on command in Target 'Runner': script phase “[CP] Embed Pods Frameworks”

  • macOS 10.13.6 (17G65)
  • Android Studio 3.2 Build #AI-181.5540.7.32.5014246, built on September 18, 2018
  • Xcode 10.0 (10A255)
  • Xcode Simulator 10.0 (SimulatorApp-869.5 CoreSimulator-572.2)

Solution 1: Günter Zöchbauer

Should be fixed in master channel



There are two workarounds:

  • Option 1: Use the legacy build system . As noted by @gi097, open ios/Runner.xcworkspace, and change the build system to Legacy Build System.
  • Option 2: Use the new Xcode 10 build system.
    1. Open ios/Runner.xcworkspace
    2. Select the Runner project in the project navigator sidebar.
    3. In the main view, select the Runner target, then select the Build Phases tab.
    4. Expand the Embed Frameworks phase and select Flutter.framework from the embedded frameworks list.
    5. Click - to remove Flutter.framework from the list (be sure to keep App.framework).
