    Hi, I believe I was helping you with this via email. Were you able to correct this issue by removing the ads and any edits made to the splash screen?

    Although I've helped you with this via email, I just wanted to also respond to this here just in case someone else has this issue.
    So, the short answer is, that the Xcode simulator is not supported by Buildbox. You can export from Xcode to your iOS device to preview your game.
    (PS: You can also export directly to both Android & iOS devices by exporting your project to Buildbox World. https://www.buildbox.com/new-buildbox-world-android-update-likes-plays-feature-and-more/)

    Buildbox is not suitable for testing on Xcode simulators.

    This is correct, for Buildbox 3 you will need an actual device due to excess libraries required otherwise

    For everything to work, you need to be sure you have the latest updates for your PC and iOS device. The latest versions of Buildbox and Xcode. If you watch it, you won't have any problem with testing your games for the AppStore
