We build our Xamarin Forms apps from Visual Studio on Windows with a paired Mac.
In addition to the normal .apk and .ipa files, we would like produce a build artifact that is suitable for use with the iOS Simulator, so that other people can acquire it, and install and run on the Simulator.
As I understand it, the Simulator needs a "myAppName.app". I am not even sure if this is a file or folder. If I run a build for the iPhoneSimulator configuration, does the necessary file/folder exist on the PC?
In ...myAppName.iOS\bin\iPhoneSimulator\Release, I find a "myAppName.iOS.app" folder, but that won't run in the simulator.
If the proper output only exists on the mac, can someone point me to the correct location?
Information has been hard to find on this, so I may be trying to do the wrong thing. All input is appreciated.
