64 bits watchOS support
Xcode 10 GM added support for 64 bits watch application, aka
arm64_32. The current app store submission process requires this architecture to be included in your application when including watch support. You can workaround this with [https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/issues/4810#issuecomment-421338365](these instructions).
Trying to run a watch app on the new Series 4 Apple Watch will fail with this error:
IncorrectArchitecture: Failed to find matching arch for 32-bit Mach-O input file ... error MT1006: Could not install the application 'MyTestApp.app' on the device 'MyDevice': AMDeviceSecureInstallApplicationBundle returned: 0xe8000087 (kAMDIncorrectArchitectureError).
This is because the S4 device can only execute native
armv7klike previous watches.
Please read https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/issues/4864 for more information and a workaround.
