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.
It was reported before, here: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=41158
It's been marked fixed in Cycle 8.
**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.
The .dSYM is on the mac at the KB article location.
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-
