ITMS-90683: Missing Purpose String in Info.plist

Hi, i keep getting this error when trying to build a testflight. Im using comet chat pro v2.1 with react native “^0.61.5”.

Dear Developer,

We identified one or more issues with a recent delivery for your app, “Den | College Roommates” 1.50 (1.3.0). Please correct the following issues, then upload again.

ITMS-90683: Missing Purpose String in Info.plist - Your app’s code references one or more APIs that access sensitive user data. The app’s Info.plist file should contain a NSCalendarsUsageDescription key with a user-facing purpose string explaining clearly and completely why your app needs the data. Starting Spring 2019, all apps submitted to the App Store that access user data are required to include a purpose string. If you’re using external libraries or SDKs, they may reference APIs that require a purpose string. While your app might not use these APIs, a purpose string is still required. You can contact the developer of the library or SDK and request they release a version of their code that doesn’t contain the APIs. Learn more (

Best regards,

Hi @fpvrc ,

You need to add NSCalendarsUsageDescription in your info.plist file present inside your app for submitting your app to App Store. This won’t ask the user to provide access to the calendar while launching and using the app. We have tried this and it will work properly for you however we are still working on fixing it. Do let us know if you still have any query we would love to help you out
