How to Remove the “Powered by React Native” Message in iOS Apps

This video shows how to remove the “Powered by React Native” message that appears at the bottom of the launch screen by default when an iOS React Native app is launched.


So you may have noticed that when you run a default React Native app, there’s a kind of loading screen which flashes up before the app starts properly, and it has the name of your app and it has “Powered by React Native” at the bottom of the screen. Now, you may want to remove that at some point. In this video, I’ll show you how you can do that.

The app is just building at the moment, let’s keep an eye on it. Here we go, we’ll switch the simulator, so there you can see “Powered by React Native.” Let’s say we want to get rid of that message. How can we do that? It’s pretty simple, actually. If you open up your project in Xcode, you may not be familiar with this, but it’s not too difficult to just make a simple change. Here we have the new project, it’s called “Hello World,” we open up this folder, also called “Hello World,” and that will of course be whatever the name of your app is, and this is the file you want. It’s launchscreen.xib. You open that, and here you can see the loading screen. You’ve got the name of the app here, “Hello Wold,” and then the message “Powered by React Native.” To get rid of that, just click on it and then hit delete. Simple as that, you’ve gotten rid of the message. There we go, we can rebuild that project, and when it starts up again, you should see that there’s no “Powered by React Native” message at the bottom. Here we go, there we go. You can see, there’s no more message “Powered by React Native” at the bottom of the screen.
