iOS Simulators on not showing in VS2019 for Windows

Mohammad Radawan 106 Reputation points

I'm using a windows machine paired to an iOS machine for debugging iOS apps, everything was working fine and all of the simulators were populated successfully every time I pair, until I updated everything on the mac (XCode & visual studio). The connection between windows and mac is done successfully, however there no simulators appearing whatsoever. Please help me because my project is stopped. I have to mention that I'm using this method (pairing to mac) because the simulators issue exists on my mac. I've left no stone unturned to fix it but they are not appearing, only the generic simulator does, as a workaround, I decided to pair to a mac from windows and all of the simulators appeared like a charm, until I decided to update which I really really really regret doing

    Hi MohammadRadawan-7969,

    I updated everything on the mac (XCode & visual studio)

    Does this mean you have updated the Xcode to 13? If so, please install the xamarin.ios- which for Xcode13 first.

    Here is the GitHub thread you can refer to: Xcode 13.0 Support. Also, you can post any Xcode13 issue there.
