How to use React Native to solve the "unrecognized command run-ios" error

A quick guide on how to solve confusing React Native errors

I am starting a new React Native project and ran the command

npx react-native run-ios

Start it.

I returned an error in this line:

unrecognized command "run-ios"

I could not figure this out, until I realized I was running this command in my home folder.

Instead, this needs to be run from inside the project’s folder.

cd into the React Native project, and this error should go away and your React Native app should start successfully
