I can confirm this is happening. A device that used to show events no longer shows events.

It looks like iOS 10.x changed how log entries are separated.

I have checked this issue with latest master XS 6.3(build 469) and observed that its working fine with this XS.

I am getting iOS device log in Device log window. Screencast for the same: https://www.screencast.com/t/9Jpdi3vCN

I will verify this issue once this fix is merged with C9 builds.
