I am trying to deploy/ test my app on my device (iPhone 6), but it has my device is ineligible since it is running 8.4.1 and the iOS Deployment Target only allows up to iOS 8.3. What do I do ?

Most likely you just need to update Xcode to the latest version (8.4.1 is current running version and is deployable in Xcode 6.4). Check the Mac App Store for updates.

Shouldn't be the case (since 8.4.1 is not currently beta), but another reason this could happen, is if you have updated your device to a Beta version, in which case you will only be able to test on Xcode Beta, which needs to be downloaded from developer.apple.com
