When I run my app in the iPhone simulator, the cast button is visible and showing the nearest cast devices, but when I try to run my app in the real device(iPhone), the cast button is not visible.

Hello, Welcome to the Chromecast Help Community
Try each of the following before moving on to the next:
  • Turn your iOS device OFF and back ON
  • Are you using the Google Home app  that replaced the Chromecast app?
  • Are your Apple devices on current Minimum system requirement?
  • Turn on Bluetooth:
    1. On the home screen, tap Settings > Bluetooth.
    2. Make sure the slider is On (toggled to the right and green).
    3. Close out of Settings and return to the Google Home app .
  • Reboot your router
  • Make sure you power the Chromecast device with the provided power supply into an open electrical outlet, not using a USB input on your TV or other device.
  • Check your Apple Wifi settings
  • Your Apple device, Chromecast device and Wi-Fi Router should be within ~15 feet (4 meters) of each other. 
  • Reboot Google Home app on your Apple device > tap on Devices  > tap the Cog Wheel > tap on the three stacked dots in the top right corner > tap Reboot
  • Conduct a factory data reset on your Chromecast device.
  • Try Chromecast on the SAME 2.4 (Chromecast 1st gen requirement) Ghz frequency wifi router band as your iOS devices
  • See original post by Google employee about other settings.
IF NO RESOLVE after trying steps above.
Conduct a Factory Data Reset
Make sure your Chromecast device is powered aat a wall outlet with the supplied power adapter
Next, re-setup your device

None of this works. My chrome cast is effectively dead as no cast button can be found

crap answer.  I have found the following to also work:
1) restart the microwave
2) open dishwasher
3) blow your nose
4) flush the toilet

Google - you suck !

I have chromecast that
1) works without problem on Netflix app
2) YouTube have to try the cast icon a few times before the chromecast device shows in the list - the Samsung TV device always in the list
3) Google play must - no cast icon. I do have Apple air icon though - and it can stream to Samsung. 

Bottom line: Chromecast rocks when it works. 
Google - fail on your homework.  Maybe you should ask the Netflix guys how they make it work.
