Appium use read-only iOS app?

Is it possible to run Appium with read-only iOS app? We have large archive of apps from read-only network share. It would be a great help if I don’t need to make copies of the apps.

Just to try the permissions, turning off write permission (chmod a-w on local disk also gets that error when Appium Inspector starts up:

info: [debug] [INST STDERR] Instruments Trace Error : Target failed to run: Unable to install app with path: /Users/username/Apps/ “(null)”

info: [debug] [INSTSERVER] Instruments exited with code 253

Thank you.
