Ios-deploy error 253 after iPhone upgraded to 10.3.1

Hi everyone,

My test environment:

  • iPhone running iOS10.3.1
  • Xcode 8.3.2
  • Appium 1.6.4
  • Eclipse on Java

I was running my iOS Appium testcase without problem on my iphone (then running 10.2). Then i took the leap and upgraded the OS to 10.3.1 and tried to run my Appium testcase again and the following error ensued:

[XCUITest] Error: Could not install app: ‘Command ‘ios-deploy --id dd07xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx --uninstall --bundle ‘/var/folders/gm/qwf2t43d2lz1p07ww4t45755ykzjrb/T/2017319-2839-197ltlo.ye66o5hfr/Payload/Ev’’ exited with code 253’
at IOSDeploy.install$ (/Applications/

The app got installed successfully on my iPhone but my testcase got terminated because of the above error. Is this error because Appium 1.6.4 is not supporting iPhones running 10.3.1 yet?
