If you are able to deploy to i OS 10.3 and Xcode 8.2 it should also partly work using remotebuild. I understand your trepidation with regards to releases, and I had the same thought myself.
This is the best solution I could come up with, it got me through the final stages of development and release, but it's useless if you wan't to debug and test. @jlyshoel many thanks for the detailed explanation, it was really helpful, at lest I am able to build for i OS again (not yet with the i OS 10.3, I will try the work around later). If I build and send a new release to the store using XCode 8.2, will it be available for all i OS devices or 10.3 will be automatically excluded? I can happily report that we just released an app to App Store this morning, and a non-tech colleague of mine installed it on his i Phone with i OS 10.3 from App Store just after release.
If your computer is using Personal Hotspot on the i OS device that you’re updating, connect your computer to a different Wi-Fi or Ethernet network before you update.
then recompiling and installing back on the mac worked for me (although the plist is now always generated as export Options.plist instead of app Name.plist *Updated as i realised I duplicated the fix instead of before & after I am relatively new to IOS development, and having spent the time setting up my provisioning profile, configuring remotebuild, fixing the issues with xcode recognising my provisioning profile, I thought I was there when VS output showed 1 ** BUILD SUCCEEDED **., only to get....
Do you think if we downgrade the XCode we will be able to keep going for a while? @rvfede I dont' have any news, seems that they are working on it and a fix is soon to be released. If you downgrade to XCode 8.2, you are able to build and run apps from Visual Studio. If you move/copy the 10.3 "supported deviced" folder from an unpacked version of XCode 8.3, you are good to go.
Backing up to i Cloud or i Tunes, or both, is strongly recommended.
You'll have to cancel it manually and start the app manually on your device.
More on how to get Xcode 8.2 and i OS 10.3 to work together here; https://gist.github.com/steipete/d9b44d8e9f341e81414e86d7ff8fb62d To make sure your mac is setup correctly, you can use Xcode and create a blank project to deploy.
The easiest way for most people to download i OS 11.2.2 is over-the-air, directly on their device. If you have limited space on your device or software update isn't working for whatever reason, you can update using i Tunes.
Though the build number isn't different between Apple's GM betas and the final version of i OS 11, some users are having trouble installing the final version of watch OS 4 with a beta version of i OS 11.
