When building for iOS, .dSYM files are not copied back to the PC with the IPA file. That makes it very difficult for the developer to save these for symbolicating crash logs later.
**Steps to Reproduce:**
1. Build an iOS IPA
2. Check the bin folder
No .dSYM is present.
The .dSYM file should be copied to the PC.
We currently have KB article on where to find these on the Mac: https://kb.xamarin.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1969488--where-can-i-find-the-dsym-file-to-symbolicate-ios-crash-logs-
Fixed on master.
I guess that repo isn't OSS like the rest.. yet.
I have checked this issue with latest Master Xamarin.VisualStudio_220.127.116.119_549e62485e289525dfd273d072acf318165d44ba and xamarin.ios-18.104.22.1685_a0a1288143af1d2a352ce295e8b7658e84474dd6 and observed that now this issue works fine. On building the iOS IPA, .dSYM file is appearing in bin folder as shown in screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/ZNxO9VkGY
I'll verify this issue with cycle 8 builds.

the public doesn't have access to the XamarinVS repo. Is there a work-around available until this get's released?
I have this config in my cshtml for copying the ipa, I'm hoping the same is available for the dsym.
