In this short article, you will learn how to set up Xcode Simulator in Android studio when working with Flutter. I faced this issue while setting up Xcode Simulator to run my Flutter app, so I decided to write the solution I found.

iOS setup

Firstly, you have to install Xcode on your MacBook to develop Flutter apps for iOS

Note: you need a MacBook

Secondly, you configure the Xcode command-line tools to use the newly-installed version of Xcode by running the following from the command line:

$ sudo xcode-select --switch /Applications/

For a beta version of Xcode Installed on your MacBook please use the below command

sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/

Thirdly, run your flutter app with the below command

open -a Simulator

or you use the Android studio run button.

Thanks for reading my article.
