Expo Client not installing on all IOS simulators

Hello there!

I am having an issue where I am unable to install the expo client across all of my IOS simulators (Iphone 12, Iphone 11, etc.). The only simulator where it is installed is the iphone 8, but I would like it to be installed on all of the simulators. I ran “sudo expo client:install:ios” and it said it successfully installed it but it did nothing. No matter how many times I run that command, nothing happens and the expo client is never installed. Also, I use to have it working correctly on my old macbook but ever since I switched to my new one, it does not work. Please help and thanks so much!


I have same issue.
In my case it was installing on iphone 8 plus. Even though only simulator that was opened was iPad Pro. I even removed the iphone 8 plus simulator but then it started to install expo go on the iphone 8… :disappointed:

Hey all, can you let me know what version of the expo-cli you are using as well as what Xcode version? I just tried installing it on a couple different simulator models without issue (SE, 12, 12 mini)
