In Xamarin Studio (Mac) it is impossible to select the option to build an IPA for the iPhoneSimulatorPlatform, but in Visual Studio you can... however the IPA is not built (expected as there is no need for a simulator build of an IPA). This may cause confusion as users might expect an IPA to be generated when it is not.
Would it be possible to disable the iPhoneSimulator platform so it can't be selected in the Platform drop-down in the Project Properties -> iOS IPA Options settings page?
We have that option enabled because we need to be able to unselect it if it's selected, and it would be weird to disable as soon as it is selected. We know it's not the best option, but it is absolutely by design.
