Description Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-02-21 10:34:15 UTC
A number of users are running into rejections from Apple because Apple has decided to enforce that all apps targeting iOS >= 5.0 be compiled for ARMv7

What we need to do is detect this and automatically build for ARMv7.

We may also want to split out the Architecture combo box options from the LLVM options.

This is partially a dup of bug 3.
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-21 14:18:27 UTC
We should either remove the options for ARMv6 or Fat (ARMv6+ARMv7) with minos 5.0, or display a  warning. The former will be rejected, the latter will be pointlessly bloated (and maybe rejected).
