iOS requires a few extra steps that are not required for Android/Windows.
Enable Swift Modules
Because the iOS module uses Swift, if the user is using a standard react-native application they'll need to add support for Swift in the project. This can be easily by adding a swift file to the Xcode project -- could be called

You'll need to run a
pod install in order to install the native iOS dependencies
cd ios && pod install
