Xcode 8 with older Base SDK

Solutions Collect From Internet About “Xcode 8 with older Base SDK”

Starting with Xcode 7.3, in addition to copying in the SDK, you must also edit a certain Info.plist file, as described here for macOS in the post by agx. It looks like there is a similar file for iOS, at

Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Info.plist

Try changing the value of MinimumSDKVersion in there from 10.0 to whatever SDK version you want.

I’ve not tried this with iOS, but, using this workaround, I was just able to build a macOS target with macOS 10.6 using Xcode 8.0 (8A218a) (the “GM”).
