Fixing the FMX TWebBrowser issue on iOS 9


Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Update: You now optionally add additional keys in the iOS9Fix_config.txt file

Linking against iOS 9 introduces the new Application Transport Security feature that enforces a secure network connection. This means that in a default RAD Studio 10 Seattle project, the default TWebBrowser but also our TTMSFMXWebBrowser, TTMSFMXWebGMaps,
TTMSFMXWebOSMaps components and the TMS Cloud Pack for FireMonkey cloud services can no longer make a connection to the web. A solution for this issue is to add the following key to the Info.plist file:


As the Info.plist is automatically generated based on the project options, there is no option to specify a boolean key in a dictionary. To make sure the Info.plist file contains the correct keys in order to link against iOS 9 we have created an iOS9Fix command line executable and a post-build command.

1) Copy the iOS9Fix.exe & iOS9Fix_config.txt files to the project directory.

TMS Software Delphi  Components

2) Add the following post-build command to your project options.

call "$(PROJECTDIR)\iOS9Fix.exe" "$(OUTPUTPATH).info.plist"

If the above steps are executed correctly, your application should then be able to make a connection with one of the components mentioned in this blog post.

The solution with the above instructions can be downloaded at

Hi Pieter,

Woud it be possible to maybe expand on this "fix" of yours?

The reason I''m asking is because I frequently find myself adding these structured attributes to Info.plist:

We have updated the iOS9Fix executable to extract the keys from an iOS9Fix_config.txt file, you can add your keys in this file and execute the same steps.

Kind Regards,

Not sure I understand your question. This blog article refers to newer versions of Delphi and is not really related to $(OUTPUTPATH)?

Great tool, however I''d like it to be able to replace the value(s) if the key already exists (eg DTPlatformBuild, DTXcodeBuild etc), because at present, your tool inserts a new value regardless..

or can it do that already, and it''s something I''ve missed?

The tool always adds the keys at the end of the plist, we will investigate if we can expand this tool to modify existing keys.

Kind Regards,
