When starting a new Forms PCL project in Visual Studio, the Assembly name is set to FormsTemplateiOS instead of the app name. This results in a warning that the assembly name and the app name do not match an thus may not be symbolicated properly.
This is the warning:
Warning 1 The executable name (FormsTemplateiOS) and the app name (BuildErrorsiOS.app) are different, this may prevent crash logs from getting symbolicated properly. C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets 385 3 BuildErrors.iOS
## Steps to reproduce
1. Open Visual Studio and create a new Forms PCL project.
2. Build and launch to device or simulator
Expected result: no warning about assembly name being different form the app name
Actual result: Above warning generated about assembly name being different form the app name
## To resolve:
Change the assembly name to match the app name.
