Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring the iOS Simulator for app development, part of Programming for Non-Programmers: iOS 8.
- In addition to customizing the Xcode user interface,…you might also want to customize the…iOS Simulator interface.…To do that, we'll first need to select a device…to simulate in the simulator.…At the top left of Xcode,…find where it says the name of your project…and the device you're testing on.…Right now it says iPhone 6.…I'm going to click that…and from there I can choose…any one of these devices,…going all the way back to the iPad 2.…
I'm going to choose iPhone 6.…I'm just going to leave iPhone 6 selected…and then I'm going to hit the Run button,…which looks like the Play button.…The keyboard shortcut for that is cmd + r.…When I hit the Run button,…just with the default project,…the Xcode Simulator will launch…and I should see a blank screen in the iOS Simulator.…So, now I'm looking at a blank white screen…with some iPhone text on the top.…
