Before you debug with iPhone, follow this mapping table about the version of Xcode and iOS:

Xcode 12.3 → iOS 14.3

Xcode 12.2 → iOS 14.2

Xcode 12.1 → iOS 14.1

Xcode 12 → iOS 14

Xcode 11.7 → iOS 13.7

Xcode 11.6 → iOS 13.6

Xcode 11.5 → iOS 13.5

Xcode 11.4 → iOS 13.4

If you're still encountering the error, try to unpair the device within the menu Window > Devices and Simulators, clean Xcode, reconnect and trust the device, then re-run. It worked for me! enter image description here

Xcode 11.4 includes SDKs for iOS 13.4 as mentioned on the release notes here.

You must update to the beta version if you wish to deal with iOS 13.5.

Developers who are using Xcode 11.5 and trying to install their app in iOS 13.6 device will also see this message. It's a very confusing message.

All you need to do is Download Device support files of iOS 13.6 from this link


  • Close Xcode

  • Unzip and paste it in this location:


  • Reopen Xcode.

Now you can install the app on the iOS 13.6 device using Xcode 11.5.

Going to Window → Devices and Simulators will give you a better idea of what's going on. In my case, I had to update the iPhone since Xcode updated overnight and stopped supporting my iPhone.
