Xcode 10 - iOS 12 Simulator location simulation fails on City Bicycle Ride/City Run/Freeway Drive


Still happening in Xcode 10.0, and the only thing that seemed to make it work was to have 'Allow Location Simulation' turned on in your scheme and toggling between 'Apple' and 'City Run' under your simulator's top menu:

Debug > Location > Apple

Debug > Location > City Run

(back and forth between them until your run actually begins to simulate)

  • Obviously not a permanent solution, but it can save you hours of debugging your own code vs pulling your hair out, yelling at Apple. Though we should def yell at Apple for this one.


What works for me is to go to Settings in the simulator and turn off and back on the location services under privacy. Then choose debug > location > apple > devised activity


Setting a custom location at Debug > Location > Custom Location, then changing it slightly will reliably trigger a location update.
