Defining Settings bundle based on the build configuration

I have defined my Root.plist inside Setting bundle which appears in the device settings. Now, I want it to display different options based on the kind of environment I build the project on.

I have defined a TEST and PROD schemes (different build configuration) in XCode and I want Root.plist to be defined differently for these build configuration. How can this be done?

Can we have 2 plists defined and link them with different build configuration or can we modify the root.plist at the compile time based on the build configuration or scheme chosen.

Please advise.

I have worked it out this way:

1) Add 2 settings bundle (one for test and one for prod) to the project and add them to the target.

2) Add a Run script on the Runner target to selectively copy the required Settings bundle into the build file.

if [IS_PRODUCTION]; then
cp -r ${PROJECT_DIR}/Settings/Prod/Settings.bundle ${BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR}/${PRODUCT_NAME}.app

if [IS_TEST]; then
cp -r ${PROJECT_DIR}/Settings/Test/Settings.bundle ${BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR}/${PRODUCT_NAME}.app

3) Once done, just run on different schemes to see the desired results.
