I have application in Xcode and I need to test it on iPadOS 13. But I can not find any hint how to set up iPadOS simulator. I can run iOS 13 on simulator but I want to try my app on iPadOS 13 simulator. Is there any way to achieve this?

  • Welcome to Ask Different. Look at this answer for how to uninstall simulators. Just do almost the same thing to install new simulators. – fsb Jan 27 '20 at 14:35
  • Thank you for your answer. I checked that answer but I could not find iPadOS simulator. There is only iOS simulator. – user123445151156 Jan 27 '20 at 14:42

    I can run iOS 13 on iPad simulator but that is not iPadOS. I want to run iPadOS 13 on iPad simulator. – user123445151156 Jan 27 '20 at 14:49
  • How do you determine the difference of "iOS13 on iPad" and "iPadOS 13"? Also, which version of Xcode are you using? – nohillside Jan 27 '20 at 15:20
  • I'm not sure where you're looking but the iPad simulators are are listed there. All iPhone and iPad simulators are listed under the 'iOS' title. When you click on an iPad simulator you should see the version as 13.3. Do you have any iPad simulators installed already? – fsb Jan 27 '20 at 15:26

Xcode 11.3 supports developing apps for iOS 13.3, iPadOS 13.3, tvOS 13.3, watchOS 6.1, and macOS Catalina 10.15.2.

So make sure you have Xcode 11.3, which is available for

a Mac running macOS Mojave 10.14.4 or later.


Also, make a simulator if not already there in Window menu → Devices and Simulators window. Choose device and it should show available iOS/iPadOS. If not present, hit "Download more simulator runtimes" and see if it shows up in the list.

  • On Xcode 11.4 and macOS 10.15.5 - iPadOS is not listed in the downloadable runtimes. :( – Lindsay-Needs-Sleep Jun 9 '20 at 4:59
