Error "Failed to verify code..." when I try to run Appium Inspector in iOS

Hi Guys,

I am trying to run Appium Inspector with this configuration:
{
“platformName”: “iOS”,
“appium:platformVersion”: “15.4.1”,
“appium:deviceName”: “iPhone XR”,
“appium:automationName”: “XCUITest”,
“appium:udid”: “xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx”,
“appium:bundleId”: “org.reactjs.native.example.SwagLabsMobileAppTests”,
“appium:app”: “/path/to/ipa/iOS.RealDevice.SauceLabs.Mobile.Sample.app.2.7.1.ipa”
}

But I am receiving this message:

Failed to create session. An unknown server-side error occurred while processing the command. Original error: Could not install ‘/var/folders/lt/_mdlsnb96bgf0hh7kbvgbvch0000gq/T/2022315-26820-1fivunw.ewg3/SwagLabsMobileApp.app’: - Unexpected data: {“Error”:“ApplicationVerificationFailed”,“ErrorDetail”:-402620375,“ErrorDescription”:“Failed to verify code signature of /var/installd/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installd.staging/temp.Lm8V98/extracted/com.saucelabs.SwagLabsMobileApp.app : 0xe8008029 (The code signature version is no longer supported.)”} - 2022-04-15 01:56:43.823 ios-deploy[26985:1574635] [ !! ] Error 0xe8008029: unknown. AMDeviceSecureInstallApplication(0, device, url, options, install_callback, 0)

I reboot my device and I synchronize it again but after all I can’t run the inspector. Can you help me?

Xcode version is probably too old. Here is a list of Xcode versions and the iOS versions they support:

Hi @wreed my XCode is v13.3.1 image

What version was the app compiled with?

This basically means the application under test must be updated by its developers or the newest version of it must be used for testing on iOS 15+ (if exists).
