Use Xcode 7 with iOS 10

I want to use Xcode 7 with iOS 10.

As I understand, working with iOS 10 beta requires Xcode 8 beta, so I should upgrade my Xcode. However, my code can't be built by the new compiler, so I want to stay with Xcode 7.

How can I achieve that?

Answer

You need use DeveloperDiskImage from Xcode 8 Beta. For this extract Xcode 8 Beta app and copy DeveloperDiskImage for iOS 10 to your Xcode folder.

Suppose you extract Xcode to Downloads/Xcode-beta.app

cp -r /Users/fanruten/Downloads/Xcode-beta.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/10.0\ \(14A345\) /Applications/Xcode_7.2.1.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport

After copy DeveloperDiskImage you should start Xcode and connect iOS device to your mac.

Edit:
With a standard Xcode install one can create a soft link:

sudo ln -s \
/Applications/Xcode-beta.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/10.0\ \(14A5309d\) \
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/10.0
