How to automate iOS simulator .app file creation through azure pipeline

Afsal T 0 Reputation points

I have a Xamarin app that runs on UWP, Android and iOS platforms and we are using the Azure pipeline for generating the builds for testing. For iOS, we have already configured the Azure pipeline for .ipa file creation from the GitHub repository, which will be triggered based on new commits and share the newly generated .ipa file with testers. But some testers are using the iPhone simulator to test the build. in this case, I am manually creating the .app file from XCode and sharing it with testers.

Is there any way to generate the iOS .app file through the Azure pipeline?

I have searched for this and I am unable to find any reference for creating the .app file through the Azure pipeline.

Please share any references that are helpful for resolving this issue.
