I don't believe this has anything to do with my device as my friend/team mate has the same issue with our app. We are both (I believe) using Xcode 8.3.3 and swift 3.1.

Our code does work when we put realm in a testing app and run it. If it is of any relevance we are also using Almofire, although putting this in our test app didn't break anything.

EDIT 1: The only code we have that use's realm at all is the one line above, we haven't actually stored anything via realm

EDIT 2: Above edit is incorrect, we do have code querying for realm objects.

EDIT 3: Have changed it so all code mentioning realm that isn't simply calling Realm() is commented out, issue persists. I.E; EDIT 1 is still accurate

    Why don't you read the error message? It clearly states that you are using an unsupported type in one of your Realm models.

    As the error messages says, you cannot have a stored property of type NSArray (since you are using Swift, you might have been trying to store Array<Any>, which is the equivalent of NSArray). If you really need to store a collection of primitives in one of your model classes, as a workaround you could create a custom model class with only one property and store a List of values of that type.

    The error is easy to reproduce using the following model class (I just added a new property to the Car class from the examples):

    class Car: Object {
        dynamic var brand = ""
        dynamic var name: String?
        dynamic var year = 0
        dynamic var array = [Int]()
    
        override var description: String { return "Car {\(brand), \(name), \(year)}" }
    }
    

    The mentioned error occurs on this line, as soon as you try to instantiate Realm, even if you don't create an instance of Car.

    let realm = try! Realm(configuration: Realm.Configuration(inMemoryIdentifier: "TemporaryRealm"))
