iOS Question

ionic emulate ios - won't emulate and says no such file or directory

Ran add ios and build ios fine, but then I ran "ionic emulate ios" and it brought up the xcode emulator but with no app or button for my app (just safari, maps, etc.).

I then later ran ionic emulate ios --target="iPhone-5s" and got this error:

** BUILD SUCCEEDED **

An error was encountered processing the command (domain=com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimError, code=159):
Invalid device state

Error: /Users/sh/Desktop/shapp/platforms/ios/cordova/run: Command failed with exit code 2

SHs-iMac:shapp sh$ q
-bash: q: command not found

Not sure what I did wrong as I added and built ios correctly.

It also worked correctly when pulled up in xcode although there are these warnings for both running with 5s and 6. I think it is an ionic issue not being able to emulate ios just not sure how to fix it?

Answer

Do this:

  1. Update ios-sim package: npm install ios-sim -g
  2. Update cordova: npm install -g cordova
  3. Remove iOS platform: ionic platform rm ios
  4. Add iOS platform: ionic platform add ios
