        I’m developing an app for iOS 9. The app will be used in enterprise store.

        I’m using the latest XCode 7 Beta on iPhone 5s with iOS 9 Beta 2.


        The app links against 3rd party libraries.

        The issue is that when using 32-bit executable on a 64-bit device, the executable fails to load 32-bit dylib.

        All other permutations work (running 64-bit exec on 64-bit device that uses dlopen to load 64-bit dylib, running 32-bit exec on 32-bit device that uses dlopen to load 32-bit dylib).


        Using dlopen instead of linking causes an infinite loop of error messages about dyld_image_path_containing_address failing.


        Is that a bug in iOS 9?


        Following is the crash report:

          If I'm remembering correctly, Apple removed support for 32bit binaries in iOS9.

            Hi there, We hit same issue. For some reason 64-bit iOS 9 requires 32-bit armv7s slice to have extra padding in Mach-O header (as well as extra Load Commands suiting as placeholders for App Store code encryption "bits" I guess). Without this padding the dylib will not pass these new sanity checks in the dynamic linker at your 32-bit app's load-time. You need to build all your frameworks with minimum iOS 8 target (in Xcode 6 or 7) to enforce this new Mach-O layout and problem is solved. I empirically found that armv7 and arm64 slices did not need this extra padding to load but it is not a bad idea to set minimum iOS 8 target for all slices.


            If you don't have a control over your 3rd party libraries/frameworks you may have to contact their authors to build them for you with these new settings.
