Your .zip file is now ready for upload on LambdaTest servers.

Note: If you are unable to install the iOS zip file on the LambdaTest platform, you need to remove the arm64 architecture from both your project and the pod project.

To do so, go to the Build Settings of your project. From Excluded Architecture dropdown, add any iOS Simulator SDK with value arm64 .
