Description John Miller [MSFT] 2017-03-06 21:30:26 UTC

   When building for iOS, .dSYM files are not copied back to the PC with the IPA file. That makes it very difficult for the developer to save these for symbolicating crash logs later. 

It was reported before, here: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=41158
It's been marked fixed in Cycle 8.

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   1. Build an iOS IPA
   2. Check the bin folder 

**Actual Results:**

   No .dSYM is present.

**Expected Results:**

   The .dSYM file should be copied to the PC. 

**Additional Information:**

The .dSYM is on the mac at the KB article location.

   We currently have KB article on where to find these on the Mac: https://kb.xamarin.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1969488--where-can-i-find-the-dsym-file-to-symbolicate-ios-crash-logs-
