The first version of our application is complete, which means that we are ready to go through the process of creating the production builds. In this chapter, we will start by showing you how to generate and run the application off of a static JavaScript bundle. Then, in preparation for the App Store, we will use Xcode to build our iOS release. Lastly, for Android we will walk through the set of command-line tools and scripts provided by React Native to build the final APK.
