I finally figured out what was wrong with my references in my iOS project!
Once I uninstalled OxyPlot.Xamarin.Forms, and installed the new 707-alpha PR, it was for “some reason” (actually a very good one, which you’ll see later) still referencing the Classic iOS OxyPlot.Xamarin.Forms API.
I was frustrated by this fact, since, when I created a new project, this was not an issue at all. This got me thinking.
Once upon a time, when I started my project, I was running Xamarin.Forms 1.2.3, and I have by now simply upgraded to the newest version (188.8.131.5296). I did some refactoring of my classes based on the post below, and thought that I was now running the Unified API:
Alas, upon further investigation, I found , that I had in fact NOT upgraded to the Unified API in my .csproj file:
I followed the steps, removed OxyPlot, re-installed the 707 OxyPlot.Xamarin.Forms PR from the NuGet Package Manager Console.
Hereafter, everything worked as expected, and I could finally include the OxyPlot.Xamarin.Forms package for the Unified iOS project as described in the OxyPlot documentation: http://oxyplot.org/documentation/hello-xamarin-forms
