I have the following storyboard with a segue to a storyboard reference:

Here's how to get the tab to show properly:

  1. Put the first UIViewController that will be embedded in the tab in the same storyboard as the UITabViewController. enter image description here
  2. Ctrl + Drag from the tab bar controller to the content view controller to make the connection as per usual. This will automatically add the UITabBarItem to the bottom of the content view controller. enter image description here
  3. Select the content view controller.
  4. Click the Editor menu and choose Refactor to Storyboard... enter image description here

The UITabBarController tab will now point to the new storyboard reference... enter image description here ... and the content view controller preserves the UITabBarItem from the tab bar relationship. It will appear normally in the app now. enter image description here
