Xojo Declare Statement with Static Lib (.a) for iOS?

I read that it’s possible to use static libs (.a) with Declare statements. Is this true? I didn’t see anything about it in the official documentation.
I also read that it works for iOS device builds,but not for simulator builds?

No, only dylibs. You could wrap a static library in a Xojo plugin you write.

Did you get this working @Eli Ott ? I thought that it was actually determined it could not be done.
