This is a v2 feature.
Visual Studio will display the content of "Platform" item on the csproj.
We have no control what visual studio fill-up on the Platform ComboBox.
Maybe for v2 we can find a way to hack the Platform ComboBox to display iOS Simulator or iOS Device like XS.
We won't be looking into enhancing this.
As per Comment1 and Comment2 , changing the issue status as verified.
