Description kkurz 2016-07-25 21:44:50 UTC
iOS 10 made a number of Info.plist strings required when asking permission. You hit some of them, but we use the camera and "NSCameraUsageDescription" was missing. Additionally, the error iOS provides is useless, so it's hard to identify. It just prints [access] private to the console. There may be other missing keys, please see the list here:

Yes, this key is missing, we should review the document provided in Comment #0 because I was able to spot some others
Comment 2 Sebastien Pouliot 2016-08-04 14:30:08 UTC
@Vincent when it's added to XS please make sure to forward the info the the XVS team. Thanks!

I have checked this issue with the build provided in trello card and observed that this issue has been fixed i.e. new privacy keys are added with NSCameraUsageDescription as shown in screencast : http://www.screencast.com/t/gB8mJCJ91O

could you please merge the fix in cycle 8 lane, so that we can close this issue.
