## Steps to reproduce :

@Aman, the IPA options should only be enabled if the Platform is iPhone, so in this case that's expected. 

Regarding the Build IPA checkbox checked, could you create a new app and check if that's still happening for Debug|iPhoneSimulator? If so, could you let me know what project template are you using? Because I couldn't reproduce that.

Thanks!
