Description Philip 2015-09-28 04:22:02 UTC
I can't simulate Background Fetch in the iOS Simulator with Xamarion Studio 5.9.7 (build 9). When I try to do I get the error message: "Background fetch not supported yet when using Xcode 7".

I'm not sure if it's appropiate to report this as a bug. I really need to test background fetch to ship an app I'm working on, and I can't test this right now.
