Using iOS 10 devices with Xcode 7

Peter Steinberger started a GREAT gist on Using Xcode 7.3.1 and iOS 10 devices.

Below is what worked for me to get a few extra test devices (my carry phone runs the 10 beta) working with Xcode 7. Can’t upgrade to 8 just yet. Working with a contractor and don’t want to move too many pieces.

My Setup

Xcode 7.3.1 and Beta 6 iOS 10 beta 6 (Beta 7 is out, after getting this to work, I don’t think I’m upgrading just yet)

Steps

  1. sudo ln -s /Applications/Xcode-beta.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/10.0\ \(14A5339a\)/ /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport
  2. iPhone: Settings > General > Reset > Network Settings
  3. Reboot iPhone (after it wakes back up from the network reset)
  4. Reboot Mac (restarting Xcode alone didn’t work)

It these steps don’t work for you, check out the gist for other options.
