I recently figured out I could copy files from my laptop directly to the iPhone simulator by dragging and dropping them. Unfortunately, I'm getting this error when doing it.

I searched the Internet and could find anything relevant. I have alternate ways of getting files to the phone simulator but this would definitely make things simpler for me. Does anyone know the solution?


Did you share the file to the iphone? I dunno


Hi, Yeah it is showing the same issue to us while transfering the files of affordable gps watch to our iphone device. I have tried different way but no one working. At the end I transfered the data from the laptop to iphone through whatsapp web. I login different whatsapp in the laptop and sended the files to the whatsapp which was login in the iphone mobile.
