SOLVED iOS Export: Connection Successful, No Devices Found

I'm developing my game on my Windows PC, and I have a Mac set up with Xcode for testing the iOS export. I hadn't tested in a while so I tried to send a build to the Mac, but I kept getting the "FAILED: Run Program Complete" error. I then tried to search for iOS devices connected to the Mac within Game Maker to see if that was an issue. The check should've returned all of the simulated devices I have set up in Xcode, but none of them appeared.

I've gone through the setup process for both Mac and iOS again to see if I've missed anything. I've double checked, and everything seems to be in order.
I'm using the latest GMS2 Windows Runtime as of 5/23/20 (2.2.5.378) and Xcode is completely up to date. I've looked through other threads with similar issues, but none of them seem to be in the same situation I'm in.

Bumping this. I had a dream that someone responded with an answer but I was banned from the forums and couldn't read it. Help please 🥺

There is a known issue exporting to Mac OS from a PC at the moment. You'd have to build directly on a Mac with a Mac OS version of GMS2 IDE.
If your project is on PC, I'd recommend synchronizing a copy to Mac OS using external source control, for example: git + bitbucket.

That said, have you checked in your Mac OS's XCode that you can see your iOS devices?
You may have to make sure:
(1) Your XCode is up-to-date
(2) Your developer account credentials are setup correctly, and that
(3) Your device trusts your Mac
before proceeding.

This is something I’ve been considering, and since I’m fitting the three criteria you mentioned, it’s looking like using the Mac IDE will be my solution.
I’ll report back after I’ve tried it out! 👍

Alright, I've started using the Mac IDE, and it works great. I'm able to test a lot of things much quicker now, as I can just run a Mac build and spot any issues that way, since Mac and iOS architecture are similar.
That being said, it turned out not to be the fix I was looking for. I did figure it out, though. Or, rather, someone else on this forum figured it out two years ago 😅

You just have to set Xcode's command line tools properly, and GMS2 will be able to pick up the Simulators again.
