When you deploy a project for an Apple platform (macOS or iOS), RAD Studio generates an Apple application information file. This file is necessary to generate the bundle of your application.

Apple application information files are property list files with essential configuration information for Apple platforms. The file content is generated from several sources, including your project configuration (see Version Info), compiler options (see "Minimum iOS version supported" in Linking) or your SDK. The Apple application information file is generated as an XML file containing keys and associated values.

For iOS applications, the info.plist file is maintained in XML format during development, but delivered as a binary file for deployment. For macOS applications, the info.plist file is maintained and deployed in XML format.

For more information about the Info.plist file, see Info.plist Reference.

When you deploy your project, your Apple application information file is generated by default as <project>.info.plist into the following folder:

Note: You do not need an Apple application information file for packages.
    • For Delphi: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\Bpl\<platform>
    • For C++:
      • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\Bpl\<platform>\<build configuration>
      • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\DCP\<platform>\<build configuration>
  • In other projects: C:\Users\<user>\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\Projects\<project>\<platform>\<build configuration>
