Facing issue with iOS simulator

Hi Chris,

I love your videos on YouTube and follows everything. While development i am facing a strange issue that whenever i open my app in iOS simulator it just shows a iphone simulator but just a black screen. It doesn’t show apple logo and never boot into the ios. Currently I have build a hackintosh for this whole learning process. Right now I am running Mac OS Monterey 12.6 with Xcode 14.1.

By the way I am new on this iOS learning process but have a pretty good experience in fullstack web development.

Welcome to the community.

What exactly do you mean by a Hackintosh?

Probably a self-built PC, but is running macOS

That could be the reason, but not sure, I’ve never had a Hackintosh

Have you reset the simulator?

@akashsahay

Let’s assume that your “hackintosh” is running properly.

What code have you written in Xcode that you are attempting to run on the simulator?
Have you created a new project or are you using an existing project?
If it is a new project, did you create it as an iOS project?

Is it a SwiftUI project or a Storyboard (UIKit) project?

What simulator have you selected from the available simulators?

Thanks for these I figured out why it was showing black screen on iOS simulator. Actually Mac OS Monterey discontinued support for metal graphics card and only supports OpenCL cards. So as soon as I disabled my gpu and enabled the system default graphics card it starts showing the Apple logo in simulator and the app is working now.

Sorry if I have asked the questions irrelevant to this community.
