How to resolve "No supported tvOS devices are available. Connect a device to run your application or choose a simulated device as the destination."


(Karthik Kamalakannan) #1

I’m trying to develop a simple tvOS app using Xcode 9 and tvOS 11. But I’m facing this issue when trying to run the code:

No supported tvOS devices are available. Connect a device to run your application or choose a simulated device as the destination.

Can someone please help me out on that?

Alright. Looks like I’ve figured it out myself. The simple steps are:

  1. Open Xcode 9
  2. Go to Window > Devices and Simulators
  3. Switch to Simulators tab
  4. Click on the + icon in the lower left
  5. Type in a name for your simulator, choose the device type and finally, choose the OS version
  6. You’re now done. Go ahead and run it. Make something great.
