Previous versions of the iOS Simulator (7 and below) would also show the iPhone skin, which made for better demos:

Is there a way to do this with the iOS 8 Simulator? This isn't as compelling:

    For what it's worth, there's Loren Brichter's SimFinger (more info), but I won't post that as an answer because it doesn't currently have iPhone 6 or 6 Plus graphics. – kirb Oct 10 '14 at 17:09

No, it's no longer possible. The recommended way for making demos is now using Quicktime in OS X Yosemite recorded directly from the device. If you wanted you could take that video and during post-production use one of the App Store Marketing Templates to make it look a little nicer.
