delete you logs first (hard to scroll). disable Show Simulator Log and paste your log again - hard to read all mess.

Deleted my logs.

Now somehow I am able to run app on simulator from appium,

but after some time app closed automatically (I think due to instruments get crashed).

Logs are attached. (Disable simulator logs).

One Question:-
for iOS automation from appium, can we access source code of iOS application ? Or we just use .ipa or .app, and gets its UI element (means we cannot test background data)?
