Breaking change for iPhone Simulators caused by node-saucelabs version bump

See original GitHub issue

Hi, I have an issue related to the Sauce Labs update submitted at #206, landed in #207 and included to 4.1.5 release.

In my config I have the following launchers:

  'sl-safari-latest': {
    base: 'SauceLabs',
    browserName: 'safari',
    platform: 'macOS 10.13',
    version: 'latest'
  'sl-ios-13': {
    base: 'SauceLabs',
    browserName: 'iphone',
    platform: 'iPhone X Simulator',
    version: '13.0'

With 4.1.4 these worked fine. And when I upgrade to 4.1.5 Safari still works, but iPhone Simulator fails with an error:

12 10 2020 20:47:44.803:ERROR [SaucelabsLauncher]: Error: Failed to create session.
Misconfigured -- Unsupported OS/browser/version/device combo: OS: 'iPhone X Simulator', Browser: 'iPhone 11', Version: '13.0.', Device: 'unspecified'

These are the lines where the capabilities are updated so I’m wondering if something is missing from there?

@christian-bromann could you please check if this is an actual bug which needs to be fixed? Or maybe something is wrong with my configuration for iPhone Simulator and it needs to be updated?

UPD: I also tried the config suggested by Platform Configurator but still no luck.
