There is a lot more to executing appium scripts against an iOS device than against the simulator. Make sure you have the safari launcher app built with the correct bundle ID and your provisioning profile.

@Cauthon Thank you for response. I have installed 1.4.6 appium version .and it working fine but while using 1.5 appium version , It isnot working for me . Is there any issue in latest appium for IOS environment


I am using Appium version 1.5.3 to connect to iOS devices, so you should be able to as well. If I remember correctly, there were some directory structure changes between version 1.4.6 and 1.5.X.

I would double check that your signed safari launcher app is in the correct directory, node_modules > appium-ios_driver > build > SafariLauncher, of your appium installation. I do remember having trouble getting my tests to run again after upgrading to 1.5.3 and ended up rebuilding SafariLauncher. Also are you starting appium from the commandline or via the Appium GUI? There were changes in how to call appium from the commandline between the two versions.
