Product:Simulator Product Version:
Classification: Reproducible:

iOS app that runs inside a simulator on macOS Mojave and uses microphone triggers macOS microphone permission dialog every time it runs.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run an app that uses microphone on a simulator

Expected Results:
The app only asks for microphone permission with iOS system alert inside the simulator when run for the first time. If permission is granted no alert is displayed.

Actual Results:
macOS Mojave system permission alert is displayed each time the iOS app is started inside simulator (see attached screenshot). Note that this permission alert is not for the simulator app but for iOS app that runs inside. This alert  blocks test execution in CI environment.

macOS Mojave 10.14.1 (18B75)
Xcode 10.1 (10B61)
