Description Vincent Dondain [MSFT] 2017-10-06 00:01:04 UTC
Often happens to me, I create a new project (currently iOS 11 because we always pick the max version), do some testing and change my Xcode to an older one (which doesn't support iOS 11) and I get confused because no simulators show up.


We should do the same this we do for device, show a greyed out section;


Try to lower the 'Deployment Target' to see older simulators
