Try to build an iOS app with Google Mobile Ads (Unity) 7.3.1. Observe that during CocoaPods dependency resolution, it pulls the Google Mobile Ads (iOS) SDK version 9.14.0. The following error is thrown in XCode:

I'm having the same problem. Did you figure out a workaround? I have been stuck on this for a couple of days.

Update: downleveling to Mobile Ads (Unity) 7.3.0 solved the issue.

Installing the Google Mobile Ads Unity Plugin v7.3.0 (https://github.com/googleads/googleads-mobile-unity/releases/tag/v7.3.0) worked for me as well.

Hello everyone,

 

@Fausto & John, thank you for sharing your inputs.

 

@Phandi, Would you be able to confirm if the issue on your end happens only using the latest Google Mobile Ads (Unity) 7.3.1 version? You may try to downgrade to 7.3.0 version for the meantime as a workaround suggested by Fausto. Nonetheless, we would require the below information for the reported behavior:

  • Sample app where the issue is reproducible
  • Steps to replicate the reported behavior or video screen recording of the issue
  • complete stacktrace
  • app id if not included in the sample app

 

You may send the requested details privately via "Reply To Author" button or with the below process.

 

If you are having trouble attaching your file to this case or if your file(s) are larger than 25mb, you can share your files with me by performing the following steps:
