Why can I install my app on ios 14.1 but not 14.2?


Ever since installing XCode 12.2, I can’t install our app on simulators running ios 14.2. I downloaded 14.1 and simulators running 14.1 install the app just fine. Tellingly, my coworker does not have this problem even though he’s running the same version of xcode, so a problem with my setup seems likely.

I’ve tried uninstalling xcode and reinstalling. I’ve deleted the derivedData folder. Nothing seems to help.

The app builds just fine, but when it goes to install on a simulator running ios 14.2, I get this popup:

Cozi Needs To Be Updated

When I click the "Details" button, I get the following:


“Cozi” Needs To Be Updated Domain: IXUserPresentableErrorDomain Code:

I don’t see other people on StackOverflow reporting this error, so I seem to have stumbled into something a bit unique. I’d really appreciate any pointers!!

I’ve bumped into the same problem while trying to build Messages Extension on Xcode 12.2 for iOS 14.2.

This is how I’ve solved this problem:

  1. Try to set Legacy build system (File -> Workspace Settings… -> Build System -> Legacy Build System). It shows errors in better way.
  2. I’ve got smth like this:

  1. Removed VALID_ARCHS settings from my extension target
