iOS Question

Xcode 8 no support iOS 7

I've upgraded my Xcode to Xcode 8. Now I notice that I cannot run/debug on an iPhone with iOS 7.n.n. I've have read that it isn't supported in Xcode 8. I do know that my app will still work on iOS 7, but if something fails I would like to hang it on Xcode to debug it. So my question is:

Do I still get the bug fixes/improvement that were introduced in iOS 10 when submitting my app with a base sdk setting of iOS 9.3?

No, of course not. If you do that, you are still an iOS 9 app. You must link against iOS 10 if you want to run natively under iOS 10.

However, you can do that and still be backward compatible to iOS 7. And you can easily test on an iOS 7 device, so the change to Xcode 8 does you no harm.
