• Edited the Location Privacy Usage keys into Info.plist.
So right-click on Info.plist in Xcode, Open As -> Source code, and replace the existing <key>NSLocation... rows with this code:

    <key>NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
    <string>This app needs your current location to print city and date over your pictures</string>
    <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
    <string>This app needs your current location to print city and date over your pictures</string>
    <key>NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription</key>
    <string>This app needs your current location to print city and date over your pictures</string>
    <key>NSLocationUsageDescription</key>
    <string>This app needs your current location to print city and date over your pictures</string>

In this way, the Location permission alert will show up on devices with iOS versions older than iOS 11

I get a Code signing error in Xcode 8.x

That’s a bug of Xcode 8 with macOS Sierra, check this sample video to see how to fix it: https://youtu.be/z2LemT1_LqA

How to remove AdMob banner ads

Check this video out to see how to remove the code that shows AdMob banners: https://youtu.be/e-HQYnta2Jg Keep in mind that you must repeat the shown steps for every .swift file that contains this line on the top:
import GoogleMobileAds

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

Should I use the latest version of Xcode to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE.

Important Disclaimer: We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
