XCode Simulator Issue


I am trying to open the expo app on the simulator, I have selected Xcode app from its preference settings.

Even I have already tried with following command but still am not able to open an app on simulator:

sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/Xcode.app


Hey @ankit.nectarbits,

What version of Xcode do you have installed and can you run expo diagnostics and paste the log that is printed out here?



I’m using XCode 10.1 and the diagnostics log is as follow:

Expo CLI 2.10.1 environment info:
      OS: macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
      Shell: 3.2.57 - /bin/bash
      Node: 11.9.0 - /usr/local/bin/node
      npm: 6.5.0 - /usr/local/bin/npm
      Watchman: 4.9.0 - /usr/local/bin/watchman
      Xcode: 10.1/10B61 - /usr/bin/xcodebuild
      expo: ^32.0.0 => 32.0.4 
      react: 16.5.0 => 16.5.0 
      react-native: https://github.com/expo/react-native/archive/sdk-32.0.0.tar.gz => 0.57.1 
      react-navigation: ^3.2.1 => 3.2.1 
      expo-cli: 2.10.1


In Simulator I face issue even if I run this command

sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/Xcode.app

But still I get this issue,

[12:56:38] Simulator not installed. Please visit https://developer.apple.com/xcode/download/ to download Xcode and the iOS simulator. If you already have the latest version of Xcode installed, you may have to run the command `sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/Xcode.app`.
