XCode: “iPhone is not available. Please reconnect the device.”

I upgraded my iPhone 11 to iOS 14 today and got the message “iPhone is not available. Please reconnect the device.” when trying to send an app to it from XCode 11.4.1.

The message doesn’t really match the problem, as the problem was actually that I needed to install XCode 12 in order to support iOS 14. XCode 11 doesn’t support iOS 14.

Quick fix; install XCode 12


Unity Build Failure, unable to update SDK

So, building on Android, I get the error; “Unity Build Failure, unable to update SDK”. The project I’m working on has been updated to a new SDK but Unity doesn’t have that SDK version installed

I used the SDK manager to update to the correct API but Unity didn’t see the change as Unity is looking at it’s ‘local’ version.

To solve this, you need to install to the specific Unity version that you’re using. Simple process; Open a CommandLine (CMD) as Administrator and type: –

“C:\Program Files\Unity\Hub\Editor\2019.3.11f1\Editor\Data\PlaybackEngines\AndroidPlayer\SDK\tools\bin\sdkmanager.bat” “platforms;android-29”

Obviously, you’ll need to adjust the Unity version and the Android SDK to what you need, but this does an in-place update of the Unity installed SDK.

Once you run that, Unity is happy again
