'Storyboard doesn't contain a view controller with identifier' only on Device

I have this storyboard :

enter image description here

With this ViewController :

enter image description here

I have this code to instanciate my VC :

let VC = UIStoryboard(name: "Main_iPhone", bundle: nil).instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("POIListViewController")

When i'm running on simulator, everything works thine.

But when i launch on real device, i have this exception :

2016-07-12 10:56:19.073 App-Ely[1935:562264] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: 'Storyboard (<UIStoryboard: 0x185481b0>) doesn't contain a view controller with identifier 'POIListViewController''

libc++abi.dylib: terminating with uncaught exception of type NSException


I have my storyboard correctly loaded :

let storyboard = UIStoryboard(name: "Main_iPhone", bundle: nil)
// 'storyboardName' contains "Main_iPhone"
let storyboardName : String = storyboard.valueForKey("name") as! String
let VC = storyboard.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("POIListViewController")

Answer Source
let storyboard = UIStoryboard(name: "Main_iPhone", bundle: nil)
let vc = storyboard.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("POIListViewController") as! UIViewController


Just CLEAN your project (CMD+SHIFT+K) as you have change the storyboard name I think.
