Token cache is not persisted on iOS Simulator

See original GitHub issue

Currently, the user that logged in does not get stored in any way. So this part in OnAppearing never gets executed successfully, because there are no users: var ar = await App.PCA.AcquireTokenSilentAsync(App.Scopes, App.PCA.Users.FirstOrDefault());

Is there any way to persist the logged in user? So that the user does not have to relog every time the application closes and opens.

I’ve just tested this sample on an iOS simulator (iPhone X 11.3), the AcquireTokenSilentAsync works fine, only you have to specify in your provisioning profile that you want to use the Keychain, and then add in the Entitlements.plist a new key for keychain-access-group with your app bundle id.

After that I’m able to first log in with my password, and when I restart the app I’m already logged in (no need to click on “sign in” and to pick an account)

IMHO there is no bug, you can close this issue and also that one :
