We recently released an AppStudio iPad app to the Apple App Store and I noticed that after changing the Distribution Method from Ad Hoc to App Store our .ipa file size went from about 40 MB to 200 MB. The final install size on the iPad is over 120 MB. Our source code and assets are less than 5 MB and while I expect to see a larger .ipa once the framework files are included, hundreds of MB seems excessive. Is there a way to get our files back down to less than 50 MB for our App Store releases?

It is because the bitcode property is turned on by default. Apple recommends turning ON bitcode. If you would like you can turn it off within the appinfo.json . See the below post
