- We highly recommend keeping Xcode updated and using the latest version of the mag+ Designd Reviewer for the iOS Simulator but if you need to use an earlier version of the Xcode or the Reviewer please note that due to changes in Xcode 6, changes were required in the mag+ Reviewer for iOS Simulator. Versions 5.1.7 and earlier of the iOS Simulator Reviewer simply needed to be double-clicked in order to launch in Xcode. Starting with version 5.2.4, the app was renamed Reviewer Launcher and users must select the device and version of iOS when it is launched.

This will install the Reviewer app and start the iOS Simulator.
