Screenshot of the problem in XamarinVS 3.8
Xcode 5 iOS 6.0 and iOS 7.0 simulators are not displayed in the device list in Visual Studio.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Set Xcode 5 as the active version of Xcode on the Mac build host.
2. Open the attached test case in Visual Studio and pair to the Mac build host. The test case is simply the Single View template from Xamarin Studio, but it has the deployment target set to 6.0.
3. Set "Build -> Configuration" to "Debug|iPhoneSimulator".
4. Click the device list drop down menu to open it.
The device list displays iOS 6.1 and iOS 7.1 simulators, but not iOS 6.0 or iOS 7.0 simulators.
Compare also the 2 attached images from Xamarin Studio on the Mac build host vs. Visual Studio on Windows.
## Additional information
The iOS 7.0 simulators _do_ appear correctly when using Xcode 6 rather than Xcode 5.

Log files from XamarinVS 3.8
I don't think the logs contain any interesting information in this case, but I'll include them anyway to be thorough.
I have checked this issue with the help of the steps provided and could successfully able to reproduce this issue at my end.
And have observed that this issue exist on the Mac with XS also.
Hence, confirming this issue.
XS 18.104.22.168 on Windows and Mac
XI 22.214.171.124 on Mac
XVS 3.8.150 on Windows
Unable to check this issue due to bug 24980.
I have checked this issue and this issue is working fine now i.e. we are able to see iOS 6 and iOS 7 simulators in VS using XVS 3.9.125 + X.iOS 126.96.36.199 + Xcode 5.1.1
as shown in screencast : http://www.screencast.com/t/w5FLD0fs8
Hence closing this issue.
