[Solved] IPHONEOS_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET is set to 8.0 Xcode 12 (Flutter)

Question

Asked by Finley A on November 25, 2020 (source).

I run my Flutter project in Android Studio, pod installation goes well but Xcode build fails at the end every time like 20/30 steps first of complete the whole build. The weird fact is that Android Studio says :

Command PhaseScriptExecution failed with a nonzero exit code

But when I open the workspace with Xcode I see that my target in Runner has iOS deployment target 14.0 so I don't understand, it should be set to 14 but actually it's 8. Flutter generated Podfile, Podfile.lock and Pods through flutter run I prefer to let Flutter handle Pod generation and installation without using pod init, pod install or editing Podfile.

In addition to what Akif said, here's a running list of reasons why this error could be showing up for you:

  1. Set the MinimumOSversion to 9.0 in ios/Flutter/AppFrameworkInfo.plist
  2. In Xcode, ensure that the iOS deployment target at Runner -> Project -> Runner is set to 9.0
  3. In Xcode, ensure that the Deployment Info in Runner -> Targets -> Runner is set to iOS 9.0
  4. Double check that your GoogleService-Info.plist is there and was added via Xcode (not copy/pasted into the directory via Finder for example)
  5. Uncomment the #platform :iOS, '9.0' line in your ios/Podfile

Then, run the following in your terminal to build with a fresh state:

flutter clean \
        && rm ios/Podfile.lock pubspec.lock \
        && rm -rf ios/Pods ios/Runner.xcworkspace \
        && flutter build ios
