How To Set iOS Simulator As Destination In XCode 6

Okay, so you just installed XCode 6 in order to take advantage of Apple’s new programming language Swift. Then, when you create a new project and attempt to run it in the iOS simulator, it tells you it is unable to select the destination.

Here is what I did in so the list of iOS simulators will appear:

  1. In XCode, go to Preferences > Locations
    • Command Line Tools select Xcode 6.
  2. In the Terminal app, go to /Users/YOUR_USERNAME/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData
    • delete everything
  3. Reboot your desktop/laptop

When you run XCode again and click on the iOS Device icon on the upper left side of the window, you should then be able to see the list of iOS simulators.
