iOS simulator request for xcode11.3 stack

ios
#1

Hi there,

we’ve recently migrated our projects to iOS 13 and now using the osx-xcode-11.0 stack for our builds. Unfortunately, we realized that this stack doesn’t include the “iPad Pro 10.5-inch” simulator for iOS 13 and above, the latest OS on which it is available is 12.2 (https://github.com/bitrise-io/bitrise.io/blob/master/system_reports/osx-xcode-11.0.x.log#L906).

We are kinda tied to this specific device in our screenshot tests and it would require a lot of work on our side to set it up for a different configuration. Our understanding is that simulators are added manually (according to Xcode 11 beta5 is now available!), so we’d like to request the “iPad Pro 10.5-inch (13.3)” simulator for the osx-xcode-11.3 and future stacks. (We are okay with moving to 11.3 from 11.0.)

Please let us know if and when you can fulfill this request.

Cheers,
Tamas

Hello,

Can you try adding a script step to your workflow to create the simulator?

If you are running Xcode 11.0 stack:

xcrun simctl create “iPad Pro (10.5-inch)” com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimDeviceType.iPad-Pro–10-5-inch- com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimRuntime.iOS-13-0

If you are running Xzcode 11.3 stack:

xcrun simctl create “iPad Pro (10.5-inch)” com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimDeviceType.iPad-Pro–10-5-inch- com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimRuntime.iOS-13-3

The "iPad Pro (10.5-inch)" can be virtually anything, but you need to use it in your xcode test steps to identify the correct simulator created with the command.
