Missing file libarclite_iphoneos.a in Xcode 14.3 after update flutter and Xcode

This is a weird error to have. You’re trying to build a flutter app on an ios device, be it on iPhone or simulator and you get this .a error and it's maddening.

This also happens under the name of libarclite_iphonesimulator.a if you're building for the simulator.

Well, the solution I’ve found that works 100% of the time is:

cd /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/lib/

sudo mkdir arc

# While executing the above command, the OS will block it
# and give an error. Allow permission from the settings
# and run the command again.

cd arc
sudo git clone https://github.com/kamyarelyasi/Libarclite-Files.git .

You’re welcome.
