Appium Automation scripts are so slow on iOS

Appium is taking a lot of time around 15 sec to locate an element on ios even when trying to locate the element by id or name.
Please can someone advise how can we make this faster?

Since Apple is changed the instruments delay option causing the slowness. Lets wait for some fix from Appium programmatically or Apple.

On xcode 7.0, instruments-without-delay does not work, skippinginstruments-without-delay

Yeah I have the same issue with the slowness. Hopefully Appium can put a patch out soon to get around it until they can actually fix it.

I am still having same issue.

Has it been addressed by appium team already?

It it too slow, which is very bad…
