Xcode “iPhone is busy: Preparing debugger support for iPhone”

There are multiple solutions for this:

Solution 1: Patiently wait for 10 to 15 minutes. Have a tea or roam around 😉

Solution 2: Disconnect device from the system. Restart both iPhone and Xcode and then rebuild again.

Solution 3:

  1. Go to Windows → Devices and Simulators (Shortcut key: cmd+shift+2)
  2. You’ll see iPhone device connected to system with messageiPhone is busy: Preparing debugger support for iPhone
  3. Click on plus button (+) present in bottom-left corner.
  4. This will show the device connected to system. Click on Next button.
  5. Thereafter you’ll see ‘device setup was successful’. Click on Done button.

Solution 3 worked for me!
