I am missing a Developer option under Settings menu. What do I need to do to make it appear?

In versions of Xcode prior to Xcode 6, you can connect the device to your computer over USB, open Xcode → Organizer and select Use for Development.

Use for Development was removed from Xcode in Xcode 6 and later. It is no longer possible to do this for devices using Xcode 6 or later, even with the Devices page (⇧⌘2).

  • I see no option "Use for Development" on that screen – Jonah Mar 23 '15 at 1:42
  • Sure. This is what I see after navigating in XCode 6.2 to Window -> Organizer: i.imgur.com/Mw61lob.png – Jonah Mar 23 '15 at 15:56
  • @Jonah Use for Development appears to have been removed alongside the introduction of the new Devices page (accessible through ⇧⌘2). (Sorry for the delay, missed the ping—feel free to ping me in Ask Different Chat as I do miss the occasional comment) – grg Apr 9 '15 at 18:14

I found that by powering off the device, and turning it back on while connected to the machine running Xcode 6.3, the Developer settings menu returned for my iOS 8.3 devices.

  • This is the solution as of May 2015. Tested with iOS 8.3 and XCode 6.3.1 on iPhone 6. – Richard Brightwell May 13 '15 at 2:04

Apple removed the device list from Organizer in Xcode 6. Try going to Window->Devices. You should see your attached device in the list and from there you can enable development.

  • How does this improve or differ from other answers? – user151019 Mar 25 '15 at 18:03
  • The OP said he was opening Organizer. Devices are no longer displayed there in xcode. You can find your devices in the devices window. That's the difference. – Matt Smith Mar 25 '15 at 18:07
  • Well explain that and give some idea of versions of Xcode – user151019 Mar 25 '15 at 18:13
  • I made the edit based on your recommendation. – Matt Smith Mar 25 '15 at 18:19

    How do you enable development from the Devices window? – GreenAsJade May 14 '15 at 12:11
