akavache not caching in ios simulator/device

using xamarin forms v.3.1 and akavache v5 + akavache.sqlite3 v5.

in app.xaml.cs I initialized akavache

       BlobCache.ApplicationName = "EF_Cache";

And to cache data i use localmachine

`   await BlobCache.LocalMachine.InsertObject<List<int>>("FavouriteTeams", FavouriteTeam, TimeSpan.FromDays(300));`

To retrieve data i do

 `  var FavouritesList = await BlobCache.LocalMachine.GetObject<List<int>>("FavouriteTeams");`

The following code works fine in android devices with no issue but when i tried it on ios device/simulator it fails with no errors, the getobject<> just return null when restarting the app.

is there any thing is missing or an extra thing should be configured in ios apps in properties or info.plist.

    solved by adding that class to ios project

    public static class LinkerPreserve
      static LinkerPreserve()
        var persistentName = typeof(SQLitePersistentBlobCache).FullName;
        var encryptedName = typeof(SQLiteEncryptedBlobCache).FullName;
