Updating to Xcode 8.2 and SDK 6.0.1

Apple released Xcode 8.2 last Tuesday, along with a change to the Simulator that allows developers to drag-and-drop apps to the Simulator to install them. While this is a cool feature, it unfortunately also broke the simctl utility we use to start apps in the Simulator.

Long story short: We have a fix in place and will release our 6.0.1.GA version this Wednesday, along with 18 other bugfixes (Changelog – Log in to JIRA before). You can already use the new version today by grabbing it from here or using the following command:

appc ti sdk install -b 6_0_X

This will fetch the latest 6.0.X build and install it as your default SDK. We will make another blog post to inform you about the 6.0.1 release details on Wednesday, but to unblock your workflow, this post should help you already.

Thanks and code strong! ?

  1. Simulator is fixed but I have another problem. If I do the package to publish the app, Xcode organize don’t show the builded package.

  2. With this version you released the 19th i am unable to build appstore versions.
    Or well, titanium says the build is completed but the build doesn’t show in the xcode organizer.
    After lowering the sdk to GA 6.0.0 i am able to get the build in the organizer to upload it to the store.

  3. I did upgrade to xcode 8.2.1 and the same issue has come. The app won’t run on the simulator …
    i did upgrade ti sdk too inside the appcelerator studio and with the command appc ti sdk ….. but still not working..
    any ideas?
