Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2016-02-25 20:47:48 UTC
## Description

On creating a new Universal iOS project to support iPhone and iPad, there used to be separate sections for iPad Deployment Info and iPhone Deployment info. In current Aloha of XS, there is only on generic Deployment Info section, so separate settings for Device Orientations, etc can not be made for iPad and iPhone in the GUI editor. 

## Steps to reproduce

1. Open XS Mac and create a new iOS Universal Single View solution to target both iPhone and iPad.

2. OPen the Info.plist file in the GUI editor.

Expected result: Will have separate Deployment Info sections for iPad and iPhone

Actual result: Only one generic Deployment Info section is present.

It was removed on purpose to match Xcode behavior.
Comment 3 Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2016-02-25 21:36:10 UTC
Ah, OK. Thought something like that might be the case.

So now one has to control the orientations in the View Controllers themselves for desired supported orientations between iPad and iPhone? 

(Just in case anyone runs across this bug and wonders "well how do I set the iPad differently than iPhone then?")
Comment 4 Jeffrey Stedfast 2016-02-25 21:48:03 UTC
They could do that or edit Info.plist in the [Source] tab and add the ~iphone/~ipad keys.
