Xcode, iOS 14 and Livecode

Ralph DiMola via use-livecode
I’ve come back to an iOS app that I left for a time, before the advent of iOS 14. My beta version works very nicely in the Simulator available in Xcode 11.5, which I understand is the one LC9.6.1 expects one to have. I’m simulating an iPhone XS, largely because I’ve got one of thos,e so it makes a good testbed.

The problem comes when I want to upload my beta to my real phone, which is running iOS 14.0.1. Xcode wants me to update, presumably to the latest version.

What are my options, e.g.

1. Stop work

2. Carry on developing using the simulator and hope for better times.

3. Download another version of Xcode but keep the old one for LC development.

Of course I’ve looked for an answer from the mother ship, but although there is a very interesting mail from Panos on the subject of different versions of XCode and the way the work with LC, repeated in a Forum post in March, it doesn’t cover the case I have now, AFAIKS. I just don’t know how to get my app into my own phone - publishing the app in the Store will of course come later.

What are other folks doing?

Graham

Graham,

If you referring to the message in the "Devices and Simulator" window can ignore it. Just drag you .app in to window and it will work just fine.

Ralph, thanks - it worked! I was taking the error messages too seriously. They say “the current device configuration is unsupported. This phone is running iOS 14.0.1… “. Enough to stop me in my tracks.

Thanks so much for that.

You can have more than one version of Xcode on your system. You can install a more recent version as not to get that error message and still build against a previous version. When I say "install" I mean download from the Apple dev site. I don’t even have an xcode version in the Applications folder. I keep all versions in a separate folder renamed to their version. You just have to make sure LC build's against the one it expects. Using these commands in the a terminal window:

To see what your building against==> xcode-select --print-path
To change the build path==> sudo xcode-select -switch "/path/to/xcode_xx.xx.app"
where xx.xx is the renamed xcode.app to include version.
