Throughout the last few weeks we have seen an increased number of requests related to unexpected timeouts in iOS builds when using Xcode 7.3. We think this might be related to this issue with
To make sure that the fewest projects possible are affected by this
xctool problem, we are planning on making
xcodebuild the default inference command for iOS builds.
Existing iOS projects that are not overriding the
test section in the
circle.yml will start using
xcodebuild instead of
xctool on the 19th of April. If you would still like to use
xctool after that date, you can add the
xctool command to your
circle.yml, as shown in the example here.
If you already are overriding the
test section of your iOS project’s
circle.yml, you will not be affected by this change.
EDIT: Originally the planned switchover date was the 12th of April, and we have decided to instead move it to the 19th of April for technical reasons. We appreciate your patience.
