Missing Info.plist key CFBundleShortVersionString

While updating an app to iOS 8 from iOS 4, don’t ask, I ran into the following errors when submitting my app to the store via Xcode and Application Loader:

Missing plist key. The Info.plist file is missing the required key: CFBundleShortVersionString.

Missing Info.plist file

First off, the plist file was there but the naming format was different in that it was {App Name}-Info.plist. There was, however, no CFBundleShortVersionString and no way to add it.

The solution was to add the key Bundle versions string, short to the plist and add whatever version you like. That was all that was needed and I was able to validate my binary and submit it via Xcode.
