    Hi there,
    I just switch to OS X 10.11 after the WWDC, when I run Unity, it is able to run but not able to build any game.
    When I build my game and target it to iOS , Unity shows me that :
    Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 8.40.16 PM.png

    So I am not able to build my game, if any one have the same problem please share your solution, I am not able to build any game now. (It looks like a change of API in OS X that make Unity not able to run, wondering when if there is an update.)

    Thanks

    EDIT: Now I got a solution here, posted on down there.

    Is this the beta of El Capitan? Things are bound to be funky since it's not released yet.

    Yes.
    I have tried to build for a number of platforms and only iOS doesn't work.

    But I am not able to switch back to Yosemite, could you please launch a new version that support 10.11?
    I believe that many developers like me which updated to the beta of OS X will suffer this.

    Thanks

    5.1f2 is still unreleased version of 5.1, can you download it from the site now http://unity3d.com/get-unity/download?ref=personal The full release being 5.1f3

    I can't guarantee this will work, since OSX 10.11 isn't even a public beta, it's usually not advisable to switch to beta software during development.

    Abit of topic but if Unity plan to support El Capitan, please provide retina support and metal (If Adobe can do it so can Unity) not sure if Metal will provide Unity with a speed upgrade as rather slow app on Mac..
    Of course you rushed QI, how can Unity upgrade that quick..

    That is totally off topic, but yes, we plan on supporting Metal and we are currently working on retina too.

    I wish if Unity support metal, it can enhance editor experience on Mac so we can works better :)

    We are looking into this issue. But it will take 1-2 weeks until fix reaches patch releases for various Unity versions.
    At the moment please try Alexey's workaround.

    Hi there again. I figure this thing out myself and wrote a simple code that would able to workaround:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. using UnityEditor;
    2. using UnityEngine;
    3.  
    4. public class BuildForiOS : MonoBehaviour {
    5.  
    6.     [MenuItem("File/Build For iOS (Development)")]
    7.     static void BuildForiOSDevelopment(){
    8.         //Get all scenes from build setting UI.
    9.         EditorBuildSettingsScene[] scenes = EditorBuildSettings.scenes;
    10.         string[] scenesPath = new string[scenes.Length];
    11.         for (int i = 0; i < scenesPath.Length; i++) scenesPath[i] = scenes[i].path;
    12.  
    13.         //Select where to save files
    14.         string previousPath = EditorPrefs.GetString ("BuildForiOS.PreviousPath", Application.persistentDataPath);
    15.         string destination = EditorUtility.SaveFilePanel ("Choose a destination", previousPath, EditorPrefs.GetString("BuildForiOS.Name",""), "");
    16.  
    17.         //Check if user canceled the action.
    18.         if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty (destination)) {
    19.             //Saving settings for the next build.
    20.             string name = destination.Substring(destination.LastIndexOf("/") + 1);
    21.             EditorPrefs.SetString ("BuildForiOS.PreviousPath", destination.Substring(0,destination.LastIndexOf("/")));
    22.             EditorPrefs.SetString("BuildForiOS.Name", name);
    23.  
    24.             //Build the player
    25.             BuildPipeline.BuildPlayer (scenesPath, destination, BuildTarget.iOS, BuildOptions.Development | BuildOptions.ShowBuiltPlayer | BuildOptions.Il2CPP);
    26.         }
    27.  
    28.     }
    29.  
    30. }
    This code performs a simple build action for iOS with development build and il2cpp option, you can custom it yourself.
    Hope this will help someone that faced the same problem like me.

    Notice : use this code to build a player will always replace your whole Xcode project, I didn't find any option for "append" currently.

    Add
    BuildOptions.AcceptExternalModificationsToPlayer
    to the BuildPlayer and it will append.

    I have the same problem, but if I try the QI thing, I got an error:

    Assets/BuildForiOS.cs(1,7): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `UnityEditor' could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?
    and
    Error building Player because scripts had compiler errors

    I hope that Unity will make a Update soon...

    Hi there ,I am not sure how you copy and pasted my code, but this code should not have any errors. And your error seems like the compiler could not find any namespace names "UnityEditor" which is definitely here. So I recommend you check your file carefully, you can try to create a empty file and paste the code the I have posted.

    I am sure this code works because I am using this code to build since i updated to 10.11.

    Thank QI for this fast answer!
    For the UnityEditor problem, I just had to put the script in a folder named Editor.
    Now, the script works...

    Thank

    Nice to hear that.
    Sorry about my answer didn't solve you problems directly, I always put scripts that is about editor into Editor folder so I almost forgot that editor script must in that folder. But it is nice that my script would able to help you :)

    I am not a Unity's internal member but follow my own experience Unity is work on 10.11 and work with Xcode 6.4 and newer version. And since 10.11 Beta 4 Xcode 6.4 can also launch, too. So there shouldn't be any problem if you upgrade to 10.11 now, but I am not sure if some future update of OS X beta or Unity will ruins currently situation that cause some problem.

    The important question is: Is it possible to build an App/Game on OS X 10.11 beta for the AppStore (you've to build with a stable release of Xcode to get accepted by Apple)

    Thanks, mate. Your script works perfectly. I am still on v5.1
    Do you know if upgrading to the latest 5.2.1 will solve the issue? Thanks!
