Appium not working on the latest iOS 9.3.4

I just upgrade real device to 9.3.4 and appium start not working and gave instruments crashed on startup error. I have to downgrade to 9.3.3 immediately.

Anyone have this issue?

Hi Wayne,
Can you try to kill the instrument process and when you are kicking off the test, try to launch Xcode at the same time.
It will work.


So you have the same problem? I think appium dev should fix this problem.

Currently Appium doesn’t support for iOS 9.3 yet.

You can refer:

Appium Platform Support
Appium supports a variety of platforms and testing modalities (native, hybrid, web, real devices, simulators, etc…). This document is designed to make explicit the level of support and requirements for each of these.


See Running on OS X: iOS for iOS requirements and setup instructions.
Versions: 7.1, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 8.4, 9.0, 9.1 and 9.2

Is there a timeline for when the newer versions of XCode will be supported? With the new Apple gear announced yesterday I know most are going to need compatibility to test on.
