If your sketch does not compile and returns error:
error: return-statement with a value, in function returning 'void' [-fpermissive]
virtual void flush() { return iClient->flush(); };

You are most liklely using Firmware Beta 2.5.0 for the ESP8266. This update breaks compatibility with ArduinoHttpClient(which is used by Adafruit IO). The Adafruit IO Arduino library is currently unsupported by this beta firmware. To get it working, we'll downgrade the firmware on the ESP8266 to a stable version.

Launch the Board Manager from Arduino by navigating to Tools -> Boards -> Board Manager. Type ESP8266 into the search bar. From the dropdown, select version 2.4.2
