Can't launch Ionic 4 app in emulator


I’m trying to run ’ ionic cordova emulate ios ’ to deploy an Ionic app to the simulator. The simulator opens, but the application fails to deploy.

This is the error message I get:

An error was encountered processing the command (domain=NSPOSIXErrorDomain, code=2):
Failed to install the requested application
An application bundle was not found at the provided path.
Provide a valid path to the desired application bundle.

Here’s my ionic info:


ionic (Ionic CLI) : 4.10.2 (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ionic)
Ionic Framework : @ionic/angular 4.0.0
@angular-devkit/build-angular : 0.12.4
@angular-devkit/schematics : 7.2.4
@angular/cli : 7.2.4
@ionic/angular-toolkit : 1.3.0


cordova (Cordova CLI) : 8.1.2 (cordova-lib@8.1.1)
Cordova Platforms : ios 4.5.5
Cordova Plugins : cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard 2.1.3, cordova-plugin-ionic-webview 3.1.1, (and 4 other plugins)


ios-deploy : 1.9.4
NodeJS : v10.15.0 (/usr/local/bin/node)
npm : 6.7.0
OS : macOS Mojave
Xcode : Xcode 9.4.1 Build version 9F2000

The command does create a working ios build that I can open in xcode, but I’m looking for live reload. If anyone has ever dealt with this issue and found a solution, I would love your input.
