I had Xcode 6.1.1 installed together with the iOS8 simulators but I need to be able to test websites with iOS7 also so I installed Xcode 5.1.1 also and named it to this. (I also renamed Xcode 6.1.1 to that instead of just Xcode).

After that I got all iOS7 simulators in Xcode 5.1.1 working. But now all simulators from Xcode 6.1.1 are gone! When I try to add them back it just loads for a while and then nothing happens. What should I do?

I need iOS7 and iOS8 simulators to test with, preferably on the same computer and without any virtual machine (don't have disk space).

How it looks when I start iOs8 simulator This just loads and nothing happens

I have Mavericks on a Mac Book Pro Retina. Software OS X 10.9.5 (13F34)

You don't need both versions of Xcode in order to test with iOS7 and 8 simulators. With the latest version you will be able to test in both simulators. You just need to go to Preferences → Downloads and download the iOS 7.1 Simulator. Then you can define simulators with that version on your devices window.

  • Alright I can indeed download iOs7 simulators in xCode6.1.1 it seems but how do I restore the iOs8 simulators then? They are all gone.. dropbox.com/s/2uluny7jedmxvwv/… – OZZIE Feb 3 '15 at 13:01
  • Once downloaded, go to Window → Devices and tab the + in the bottom left of the screen. Then select name, device type, iOS version and accept. Xcode will create the simulator for you. – jherran Feb 3 '15 at 13:13

    Delete both Xcode versions installed, reinstall (don't forget this) and then install the latest available Xcode (6.1.1). Should work. – jherran Feb 3 '15 at 17:03
