Engine integrated Ads SDK fails to initialize on iOS with .ipa builds



Ads fails to initialize on iOS with .ipa build or when published to TestFlight/App Store

1. What happened

Also reported by several users starting in 5.5.0p3. Works when deployed/testing locally on iOS device directly from Xcode, however fails when building .ipa file and installing that.

From Game Performance service have following report for a published build on Apple TestFlight:
EntryPointNotFoundException: Unable to find an entry point named 'UnityAdsEngineSetReadyCallback' in '__InternalDynamic'.

Workaround is to use Ads SDK from asset store package:!/content/66123

2. How we can reproduce it using the example you attached

1. Clone
2. Test locally by running from Xcode, verify ads are shown
3. In Xcode, select Project->Archive
4. In the Archives window, select Export -> "Save for Development Deployment"
5. Install the produced .ipa file, e.g. using iTunes

Expected: Ads are shown
Actual: Ads not shown

    still happens in 2018.1.4
    videoAds showing in editor (i.e. its test-dummy), but when building to phone,
    nothing happens after calling void ShowRewardedAd()
    like described in the docs:

    This is happening me now in 2018.1. Is there a fix for it. Will the ads sdk still work now?

    This is still an issue. Using Unity 2018.1. Published to App store/ test flight - Unity ads not working.

    This is actually still stopping ads in Unity 5.6.1f1 in IOS builds. For future bugs like this kind please please put a warning or something. The problem: it looks working in the editor and in test builds and when you push it to IOS (Which is a pain in the arse to pass review) you see it is not working?!! I am not even talking about the lost advertisement revenue.
