Ionic info not detecting Xcode or ios-sim

Hi, I’m totally new to Ionic, so please bear with me!

I started the installs, got some file access errors, followed the link to setup proper file permissions on OSX for npm by John Papa - which recommended I install Homebrew to avoid having to sudo continually.

So all of this went off ok, except that ionic info wouldn’t display the ios-sim version (I installed with Homebrew). I also noticed that Xcode is required, so I installed from the app store (v7.3.1), but ionic info doesn’t pick that up either:

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.3.1
Ionic CLI Version: 2.0.0
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.0.0
ios-deploy version: Not installed
ios-sim version: Not installed
OS: Mac OS X El Capitan
Node Version: v6.4.0
Xcode version: Not installed

I’ve tried a number of searches, but haven’t found anyone else experiencing the same challenge.

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated!

did you find solution to this? I have same issue here, but I use plain old npm.

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.3.1
Ionic Framework Version: 1.3.1
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.0
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.0.0-beta.20
ios-deploy version: 1.9.0
ios-sim version: Not installed
OS: Mac OS X El Capitan
Node Version: v4.6.0
Xcode version: Not installed


Dependency warning - for the CLI to run correctly,
it is highly recommended to install/upgrade the following:

Install ios-sim to deploy iOS applications.npm install -g ios-sim (may require sudo)

Downloaded xcode 8.1 beta 2 last night, and deleted xcode 7.

Actually I fixed it, after downloaded xcode 8 from the app store and deleted xcode8.1beta.
