        Today I updated Xcode to version 11.3 to build my app for iOS 13.3. I opened my project but couldn't find the iOS deployment target 13.3 when opening the project file. Neither dropdowns in the "Project" or "Target section" show it (options are between iOS 8.0 - iOS 13.2).

         

        I updated macOS to the latest version, restarted, re-installed Xcode (deleted from Applications folder, installed through App Store), restarted again - still no value for build iOS 13.3?

         

        When I manually change the version string in the project file, I obviously run into build issues:
        "The iOS deployment target 'IPHONEOS_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET' is set to 13.3, but the range of supported deployment target versions is 8.0 to 13.2.99."


        Details:

        - Xcode 11.3 (11C29)

        - macOS Catalina 10.15.2

          Same here. Moreover, after updating ( XCode to 11.3 and iOS on my iPhone to 13.3), my iPhone is not anymore recognized by Xcode with  'No devices connected device to My Mac' (restarting / etc. does not help).

           

          ---

          Spent hours trying to workaround with no success. I filed a bug report to Apple (FB7491670).

            Hello, were able to understand what the problem is ? We tried on several iMac 10.15.2 and MacBook 10.15.2 and still no ios 13.3. Even when creating a new project. Sorry for  my English. Translation by google.

              Catalina updated,  xcode 11.3 updated and the  same. 13.3 iOS does not appear.

              Apple gets more than 33% of our developer incomes .... why is not already solved ?

              Regards

                Hi,

                I tried to built my app through xcode 11.3 but by default it is showing me simulators for xcode 10.2.1 which is also there in my mac.

                 

                can anyone please help.

                  Why do you need to set 13.3 specifically (which would mean app would not work on version below).

                   

                  If you set to 13.2 it will work on 13.3 as well.

                      Hi Claude, I'm not experiencing that. I need the 13.3 device support files because I must use an old version of Xcode for my project, and I import the Device Support for every new iOS release so I can build for it. I opened up the new Xcode and the device support files are not there. Taking your advice (that 13.2 covers 13.3) I just moved the 13.2 device support to the old version of Xcode and I get the same "Could not locate device support files" error. The 13.2 device support files do not cover 13.3 based on this test.

                      What is Apple doing here? Honestly I am trying to figure it out maybe I'm missing something - why would they hide the device support files in a new part of the Xcode file structure for 13.3? I can confirm I can build to 13.3 from the new Xcode, but that means the device support files are somewhere in this new Xcode application file. They must be in another place!

                       

                      Called Apple developer support about this (twice) and the phone rep couldn't comprehend the problem or find these forum entries.

                      The search for these device support files continues, as I can't build our app now.

                          Effectively, iOS 13.3 target does not show in XCode 11.3.

                           

                          But I must be missing something.

                          you said: "as I can't build our app now."

                          What prevents you from building the app with target 13.2 on XCode 11.3 ?

                          What do you miss then ?

                              We have a React Native app that has Swift 3, C++ and Objective C code, and the import handling changes in Xcode 11 + React Native version we are currently stuck on will not allow us to use Xcode 11 without considerable refactoring. We still need to test & ship apps on iOS 13.3 iPads, as we have a hardware specific app. So we've been using old Xcode with new Device Support for the iOS versions.

                              But it looks like this may have forced our hand in refactoring!

                              I did what @bigbubble suggested and it worked for me. I am currently restricted to using Xcode 10.3 due to limitations outside of my control in the enterprise. My iPad automatically updated to iOS 13.3 so I needed iOS 13.3 support in Xcode 10.3. So I copied /Applications/Xcode11.3.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/13.2 to /Applications/Xcode10.3.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/13.3 and all worked well.

                              Hi Claude31

                              This is not a proper solution, Apple should solve it , I do not know why this problem is still alive.

                                Usually this does the trick for me, but since I have to use old version of xcode(10.3) at the moment, it didn't solve the problem for me

                                Hi,

                                I am not sure it will work for your case or not.

                                Why you are not trying to rename the SDK 13.2.x to 13.3 and check again.

                                I did this when I couldn't build my app on the device with iOS 13.3 and also I couldn't find the 13.3 SDK to added.

                                I rename it and it was working for me.

                                  Final word from Apple after filing a Technical Level support request for the missing iOS 13.3 Device Support files - this courtesy is officially discontinued:


                                  >Thank you for contacting Apple Developer Technical Support (DTS).

                                  >The behavior and resulting limitations you describe are by design. Moving Device Support files between Xcode versions is not supported.

                                    I don't understand why we have to wait nearly a month for Apple to issue an emergency fix for Xcode such that the latest release of Xcode will build for the latest iOS and iPadOS, nor do I understand how Xcode version 11.3 passed testing and got released, given that it doesn't build for iOS 13.3.  I would have thought Apple has the highest quality standards in testing its products.  Until this is put right, I have no option but switch auto-update to OFF and manually manage all Apple upgrades.

                                      I reported the missing 13.3 SDK to Apple on 15 December.   On 18 December I got a reply:  "We are aware of this issue [missing 13.3 SDK] and working on it."    App Store update for Xcode 11.3.1 was released on 13 January but 13.3 SDK still missing.  On developer.apple.com there is a full release dated 20 December for 11.3.1 but SDK 13.3 is also missing.  

                                       

                                      If Apple are "aware of this issue" it seems they are not really working on it.
