Here is we are facing this error because of a bug related to the discrete GPU. We can solve this error by Using integrated GPU and by Reducing Transparency. Follow Below solutions.
Solution 1 : Using integrated GPU
- In the simulator, set menu File → GPU Selection → Prefer Integrated GPU to work around this bug.
- Restart the simulator.
Solution 2 : Reduce transparency
- In the simulated device (e.g. iPhone), Settings → Accessibility → Display & Text Size → turn on Reduce Transparency.
- Notice that it can only reduce the previous ‘solid’ yellow to ‘fairly light’.
- I find this workaround, as the discrete GPU can be used, is more suitable for testing the UI logic than the previous solution.
- This was tested on a MacBook Pro with Catalina. Might work on iMac.
Solution 3 : following ways.
- Unplug all cables, including the charging cable
- Restart the iOS simulator
