ARM64 builds for iOS Simulator

Recent versions of Xcode support targeting ARM64 for iOS simulator apps. Is there a way to build ARM64 binaries for the simulator using Xamarin Forms / Visual Studio?

We use a third-party web-based testing suite at work that analyzes binaries compiled for the simulator. Previously, it accepted simulator builds targeting Intel, but has recently switched to only accepting ARM64 builds.

    Hello,

    Is there a way to build ARM64 binaries for the simulator using Xamarin Forms / Visual Studio?

    In visual studio, if you set the PlatForm to iphoneSimulator, you could only select the Supported Architectures from x86_64 , i386, i386 + x86_64 or not set options.

    And if you set the PlatForm to iphone, you could set the Supported Architectures to ARM64 .

    Best Regards,
    Jessie Zhang
