### Description

When using adding a watchkit extension to a universal project, the watchkit extension is included when deploying to iPad

### Steps to Reproduce

1. Create Universal App
2. Add WatchKit Extension
3. Deploy to PHYSICAL iPad device

### Expected Results

The WatchKit extensions should not be included with the incompatible OS/Device

### Actual Results

The WatchKit extension attempts to load with the following error:  This app contains an app extension that specifies an extension point identifer that is not supported on this version of iOS for the value of the NSExtensionPointIdentifier key in its Info.plist.

Well that's a problem, but not a solution :-) Universal apps will be on the App Store and some will contain watch apps [extensions] since Apple won't let you do otherwise.

@Vincent do you still have some ObjC watch apps lying around ? Could you confirm me that the "main" app can deploy successfully to an iPad running iOS 8.2 ? (even an older 8.x version would be nice to try if you have one around).

I kind of suspect we might be missing some configuration to cover this case. There was (and still is) not much documentation about watch apps versus physical devices. I'm not even 100% sure the current Xcode would be able to deploy to watch hardware without an update...
