Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a normal .net solution
2. Create a new iOS project in the solution.
3. Go to the configuration drop down and try to run it on the simulator.

I actually have no idea how to get this project to run on the simulator now. The drop down only shows me connected devices and not simulators. Is it possible to show both simulators and devices like we do in XS?

This would prevent the need for an extra build configuration and give a cleaner User experience.
