I want to config Firebase Firestore. I followed all the steps, but at the last step, I got the error link below I mention.

After Executing this pod install command below error I got

[!] Automatically assigning platform ios with version 11.4 on target testing_gowtham because no platform was specified. Please specify a platform for this target in your Podfile. See
https://guides.cocoapods.org/syntax/podfile.html#platform.

My podfile:

# Uncomment the next line to define a global platform for your project
# platform :ios, '9.0'

target 'testing_gowtham' do
  # Comment the next line if you're not using Swift and don't want to use dynamic frameworks
  use_frameworks!


  # Pods for testing_gowtham

  target 'testing_gowthamTests' do
    inherit! :search_paths
    # Pods for testing
  end

  target 'testing_gowthamUITests' do
    inherit! :search_paths
    # Pods for testing
  end

    pod 'Firebase/Core'
    pod 'Firebase/Firestore'
end

I saw this https://guides.cocoapods.org/syntax/podfile.html#platform but I did not find which line I need to change .

How to solve this issue?

Replace your whole pod file text with below text and then check.

# Uncomment the next line to define a global platform for your project

# platform :ios, '9.0'

target 'testing_gowtham' do

use_frameworks!


pod 'Firebase/Core'
pod 'Firebase/Firestore'
end

(or) solution 2

platform :ios, '9.0' is working…I simply removed # this

# Uncomment the next line to define a global platform for your project
 platform :ios, '9.0'

target 'testing_gowtham' do
  # Comment the next line if you're not using Swift and don't want to use dynamic frameworks
  use_frameworks!

  # Pods for testing_gowtham
 pod 'Firebase/Core'
 pod 'Firebase/Firestore'

end

If the above error occurs when you install pod 'PusherSwift' and pod 'AlamofireImage' you have to remove # symbol from

# platform :ios, '9.0'.

Then write the command pod install in your terminal.

When you run the project again the error will appear according to 'pusher swift'.you have to click unblock option. Then the problem is successfully solved.

In your Podfile -> Uncomment platform and set ios : 10.0

    platform :ios, '10.0'

this will work.

Delete Podfile.lock file and run pod install.

I got this issue by changing the target iOS version and developing application on more devices.

Worked for me, but be careful – it will replace all, let’s say, locked (cached) versions of libraries, that you are using. Check yourself that you fully understand what Podfile.lock file does here –> https://guides.cocoapods.org/using/using-cocoapods.html

The simplest answer is uncomment second line of Podfile and change the iOS version to 10 like this. Note that the very next following Xcode build will take a bit more time than usual. I don’t know why…

platform :ios, '10.0'

You shouldn’t remove everything inside Podfilejust Uncomment this line:

platform :ios, '9.0'

from ios/Podfile

Updated answer for 2022.
This is due to your minimum deployment target being less than iOS 10. According to the Firebase ios setup documentation, your project must target ios platform versions iOS 10 or later:

  1. command $ futter clean

  2. Open the Podfile at the directory ios/Podfile

  3. uncomment the line platform :ios, '9.0' and change 9.0 to 10.0

    # Uncomment this line to define a global platform for your project
      platform :ios, '10.0'
    
  4. save the file

  5. $ flutter run

platform :ios, ‘9.0’ is working…I simply removed # this

In Flutter project, I Also faced with this issue. Fixed by updating flutter and cocoa pods to the latest version.

Solution:-

  • flutter clean
  • rm -Rf ios/Pods
  • rm -Rf ios/.symlinks
  • rm -Rf ios/Flutter/Flutter.framework
  • rm -Rf ios/Flutter/Flutter.podspec
  • cd ios
  • pod install
  • cd..
  • flutter build ios

In my case it was because of an old project which I didn’t run for like 6 months.

I just created a new Flutter project using this command
flutter create -i swift -a kotlin project_name

And moved the ios folder to my project, run it and it works!

I have got this error many times while running flutter firebase project. Simple solution is: Replace:

# platform :ios, '9.0' with platform :ios, '9.0'

Actually # make it commented so we are just uncommenting it.

For Apple Silicon M1 chips:

  1. Edit ./ios/Podfile
    platform :ios, '11.4' or whatever version
  2. Install ffi arch -x86_64 sudo gem install ffi
  3. Reinstall pods
flutter clean
cd ios
arch -x86_64 pod install
cd ..
flutter run

pod update and pod install again

You have to remove # symbol from

and remove # symbol and save this file

Then write the command pod install in your terminal.

To solve this : open your pod file in Andriod Studio –> ios–> Podfile then you will see at the top of the file a commented out example:

uncomment this line and re-run the app to see if it works. If it’s still not working then change the version to match your minimum requirement. I’ve set mine to iOS 12 as one of my dependencies required this.
