Cannot debug app in iOS

Hi all,

I’m trying to debug my app on iOS using XCode and the Safari debugger. This might be a problem with those tools specifically but since no advice was forthcoming on their forums I thought I’d ask here.

Previously I could run the app on my iPhone and go to Develop → My iPhone → localhost — home and gain access to a debugger view of the simulated browser environment. Instead I only see this:

I tried updating XCode, my Mac OS, and my iPhone iOS to the latest version. No dice. (In fact I think the problem was triggered by the latest iOS update.)

Is anyone else having similar issues?

Are you on macOS Catalina?

They released a security update a few weeks or months ago that totally broke Safari remote debugging.

I asked them on the webkit slack and told me to use latest Safari technology preview and has been working fine so far.
