Failed to install the Expo client on iOS simulator: xcrun exited with non-zero code: 2

Hi, I am faced with an issue where i am unable to install the expo client app onto my iOS simulator. Please advise on what i can do to resolve this issue. Have tried removing the .expo folder, updating xcode, erasing all content and setting in the iOS simulator.

Hey @isabellaskc,

Can you try upgrading to expo-cli version 3.27.12 and let me know if you still encounter this issue. Also, did this issue occur after upgrading Xcode or after upgrading expo-cli?

Cheers,
Adam

Hi, I have tried upgrading the expo-cli to version 3.27.12 however, i am still getting the same error. I am unable to provide a definite answer as I have only started recently.
