Where is the Info.plist file?

Recent versions of Xcode do not add an Info.plist file to new iOS app projects. How do you add settings to your app that you would normally place in Info.plist?

Xcode’s project editor has an Info section for the app target, where you can add the settings. Take the following steps to access the Info section:

  1. Select your project from the project navigator on the left side of the project window to open the project editor.
  2. Select your app from the target list on the left side of the project editor.
  3. Click the Info button at the top of the project editor.


At the top of the Info section is a Custom Target Properties list. To add an item to the Info section, move the mouse arrow over one of the keys in the list. Tiny buttons to add and remove an item will appear on the right side of the key where the mouse arrow is. Click the Add (+) button to add a setting to the Info section.
