There are 2 ways to Disintegrate pods: Automated & Manual. Let’s take a look how they work.

A. Automated:

Download the plugin from https://github.com/kylef/cocoapods-deintegrate and install it.

Run command $ gem install cocoapods-deintegrate

After successful execution of above command podfile, .lock and .xworkspace files will be present in project hierarchy, which you can delete manually.
