Subject Re: Accessing app bundle_id or package_id at runtime

Could your branding process be improved to also modify the -app.xml file
that's inside the IPA? Then you could use the suggested approach.

Hey OmPrakash:

Thanks for responding, this approach won't work. This is static, build-time
data. Our branding process takes the IPA, unzips it, changes the bundle_id
in Info.plist, changes app name, and lots of other stuff. Then it zips back
up and signs with certs and publishes to iTunes Connect.

Reading app descriptor is reading the original bundle_id from compile time.

Thanks though.
