How to Open / Launch iOS Simulator

If you have XCode installed you can go to preferences, downloads, and install the iOS Simulator, at this time the iOS 5.0 Simulator is the only one available, even though iOS 6.0 is already out. Once it’s installed you’ll have a new application – but it is not clear where the application is actually stored. You’ll need the path for the iOS Simulator if you want to actually launch it or open it. Fortunately that’s not a big problem – the iPhoneSimulator can be found at: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/Applications/iPhone Simulator.app Now all you have to do is open it. Voila!

Xcode Install Assistant can’t be installed on Macintosh HD because Mac OS X version 10.7 or later is required.

Apple has now made Xcode free via the app store – unfortunately since Lion has been released they no longer allow anyone with Snow Leopord to download and install it from the App Store. You can download it from their website for free, but you must be a registered Apple developer – which will set you back $99/yr.
