Undefined symbols for architecture i386 – Reachability

Today I add the Reachability classes to an app I am working on, added my #import Reachability.h to the correct files and then implemented a method to check if the device was using wifi.

When I hit build, I got the following error.

Undefined symbols for architecture i386:

ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture i386

I figured it was a framework that I had forgotten to add to I added the CFNetwork.framework and hit build again, same error again. I then added SystemConfiguration.framework into the project and hit build, and success!!

It was such a simple fix but the errors that were displayed weren’t really helpful with explaining what framework needed to be added.

  1. Add the SystemConfiguration.framework library to the Xcode project.

    i.e. Xcode | Build Phases | Link Binary Wilth Libraries + SystemConfiguration.framework.
