Xcode 15.x.x "Unable to create a device for device type: iPhone X.." error while testing

Description of the issue

Right after raising Xcode version to 15 on Bitrise.io side, we are constantly facing with the issue:

Unable to create a device for device type: iPhone X (com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimDeviceType.iPhone-X), runtime: iOS 17.0 (17.0.1 - 21A342) - com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimRuntime.iOS-17-0
An error was encountered processing the command (domain=com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimError, code=403):
Incompatible device
Test session results, code coverage, and logs:

It’s not reproducible locally with the same Xcode/simulators version, and on the previous Xcode version (14.3.x)

So any suggestions?


Where did the issue happen?
Bitrise.io, M1 medium, Xcode 15.0.x or Xcode 15.1.x with edge updates

Which build Step causes the issue and which version of the step?
Xcode Test for iOS, Version: 5.0.1


  • Does a “Rebuild” help? (You can trigger a rebuild from the Build’s page, by clicking the “Rebuild” button in the top right corner of a finished build) : NO
  • Does the issue happen sporadically, or every time? : Every time
  • Does upgrading the build Step to the latest version help? : NO
  • When did the issue start? : Right after raising Xcode version to 15
