ARCore 1.2 with ARKit for iOS crashes Editor

    With ARCore 1.2, you can now build for iOS with the Unity ARKit plugin.

    The docs say that Instant Preview is supported in the OSX editor using Metal.

    Use Metal in OSX section:

    However, the CloudAnchor test scene crashes Unity Editor when played on OSX. I was able to build the test scene and get it working on an iOS device. But, seems like a slow work flow to not be able to test in the Editor. I even tried disabling the instant preview, but that crashed the editor as well, and even made the Unity HUB think the project was still opened after it crashed. I had to full restart. The only way I've been able to test this in the Editor, is to change the build target to Android. This seems like a slow way to build an ARCore project for iOS.

    We have a bug in the current release where play-in-editor only works when targeting Android (also Instant Preview in that case will work with Cloud Anchors, and other ARCore apis, if connected to an ARCore-supported Android device). We have a fix internally for this play-in-editor issue and it will be available in an upcoming release.
