AppiumDriver.findElement() keeps retrying even after a 200 response code


Appium version (or git revision) that exhibits the issue: 1.8.0
Last Appium version that did not exhibit the issue (if applicable): 1.7.2
Desktop OS/version used to run Appium: macOS High Sierra 10.13.4
Mobile platform/version under test: 11.2.1
Real device or emulator/simulator: real device (iPhone 6s plus)


We are trying to click on an element with accessibility Id “NEXT”. Appium keeps responding with a 200 but does not find the element.
On iPhone 7 with iOS 11.3.1 works perfectly.

Link to Appium logs:


self.driver.find_element(*(By.ID, ‘NEXT’))

I find similar issue -
But it doesn’t help.
If anyone knows how to fix this, I will be grateful.

UPD: Work good with appium 1.7.2
