Try opening terminal and type:

sudo chmod -R 777 /var/db/lockdown/

(If this would work, you would need to do this after every boot of MacOS)

Also try to:

  • Change xcode to <= 8.1
  • Try iOS device <= 9.X

Try all 3 steps together.


I had some problems connecting Appium with iOS devices using Appuim Desktop. My solution was to change Appium Desktop to Appium Studio. Appium Studio makes is easier to work with Apple devices.
