Description John Miller [MSFT] 2016-10-05 13:55:42 UTC

There are a few differences between the project->properties menu in VS compared to the project->options menu in XS. It would be best to make them as similar as possible with regards to the Xamarin.iOS parts. 

**Actual Results**:

Difference in menu items:

VS menu has items:
- iOS Application
- iOS Run Options

XS menu has items:
- iOS Debug 

The iOS Build menus are organized differently (VS still uses the General/Advanced tab)

**Expected Results**:

The menus should be as similar as possible in design and text. 

**Build Date & Platform**:
