Accessing child application in container

I am automating an app inside a container app on a physical iOS device. Both container and child applications are hybrid. I cannot get the appium server to click on an element in the child application. I tried switching window handles but that didn’t help. Any thoughts?

                     String context=wd.getContext();

		for (String winHandle : wd.getWindowHandles()) {
			 System.out.println("Handle is " + winHandle);
				    //TouchActions touchAction = new TouchActions(wd);
			         catch(NoSuchElementException e){
            wd.switchTo().window(winHandle); // switch focus of WebDriver to the next found window handle (that's your newly opened window)


Here’s a sample console output for an iteration:

WEBVIEW_14Handle is 14
An element could not be located on the page using the given search parameters. (WARNING: The server did not provide any stacktrace information)
