Launch iOS Simulators using Appium Server

We don't need to create simulator for Mac; it already comes with Xcode under developer tools.

To launch simulator perform following steps:

Step 1: Check list of available Xcode devices using below command

$ instruments -s devices

[This will return device uuid and name]

Step 2: Start Appium Server

Step 3: Start Inspector Session

Step 4: Enter deviceName, Udid, App Path, automationName, platformName

Step 5: Click on Start Session
