I get the following warnings in my iOS project. What should I change in my project?

/usr/local/share/dotnet/packs/Microsoft.Maui.Sdk/8.0.0-rc.2.9511/Sdk/BundledVersions.targets(80,5) : warning MA002: Starting with .NET 8, setting <UseMaui>true</UseMaui> does not automatically include NuGet package references in your project. Update your project by including this item: <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Maui.Controls" Version="8.0.0-rc.2.9511" />. You can skip this warning by setting <SkipValidateMauiImplicitPackageReferences>true</SkipValidateMauiImplicitPackageReferences> in your project file.

I use Visual Studio for Mac 17.6.7 (build 417).

My .csproj file:

    <UseMaui>true</UseMaui>

  </PropertyGroup>
  <PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Debug|AnyCPU' ">
    <CreatePackage>false</CreatePackage>
  </PropertyGroup>
  <PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Release|AnyCPU' ">

    Hello,

    Is it necessary to add the following package references to my csproj file? <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Maui.Controls" Version="8.0.0-rc.2.9511" /> <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Maui.Essentials" Version="8.0.0-rc.2.9511" />.

    Yes, you can remove the references. These references are about Controls and Essential, which are both part of MAUI, you don't have to reference them again.

    Also, I noticed that you created the MAUI project via MonoGame iOS template, and you are using VS for Mac. Since MonoGame is a third-party tool, it's suggested that you create a new issue at their GitHub Repo for further help.

    (By searching for the issues at their GitHub Repo, it looks like they have already removed the VS for Mac templates, and I cannot reproduce your issue)

    Best Regards,

    Wenyan Zhang
