Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2015-10-21 21:19:58 UTC
## Description

When building an IPA for a WatchKit solution, the IPA does not contain the WatchKitSupport folder with WK binary. When built from Xamarin Studio, however, the IPA does contain the WatchKitSupport folder with WK binary. 

## Steps to reproduce:

1. Download WatchKitCatalog sample solution:

2. Open solution in Visual Studio.

3. In the WatchKitCatalog project, make sure the Build IPA option is selected for Release|iPhone configuration.

4. Build the entire solution for Release|iPhone configuration.

5. Look in the bin folder for the generated IPA file.

6. Change the extension to .zip and unzip.

7. Open the unzipped IPA.

Expected result: Should see a WatchKitSupport folder with a WK binary inside. 

Actual result: no WatchKitSupport folder or WK binary is in the IPA, only the Payload folder with the app bundle. 

## Notes

Yes, I know and the reporting customer knows that they can go the .xarchive route, but it would be good if the behavior in VS was the same as the behavior in XS if possible.
