Additional info: as seen in the video, I can't even press home to see the home screen of the sim, and the same home screen doesnt show on loading the simulator, as it used to.
The logs you've attached don't include the simulator logs which are in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Logs\Xamarin.Simulator
Have you updated to the latest version of the simulator? It does not currently update with the rest of Xamarin. https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/windows/ios-simulator/
Thank you for your swift feedback. That solved my problem, I forgot updating the windows sim.
There should be some kind of feature preventing this from happening, either with a big warning or something else when there is a mismatch in version :/
We're looking into improving this scenario going forward. The original issue is resolved, so I'm marking it fixed.
