Error message on Pod Build - "Double quoted include

A number of people have reported encountering an error when building a project that has Firebase Pods, for example, and the error is listed as:

“double quoted include “filename” in framework header, expected angle-bracketed instead”

This is caused by a default setting in Xcode 12 which needs to be changed so that any 3rd party framework include file with double quotes is not seen as an error.

The fix is straight forward. Using the following example project screen shot:

Select the top level of the project in the Project Navigator
select PROJECT (your Project name)
select Build Settings
select Combined
Narrow the search to the word “quote”
make sure that the option “Quoted Include In Framework Header” is set to NO
