I just started developing my first app in xamarin. everything looks good until now but I have a strange issue. I install the xamarin iOS remote simulator using link below:

first there is no way I can run it directly from visual studio 2017 ( I have community version)

second I got it runing through xamarin workbook, but it always run iPhone 5s iOS 10.3 I would like to test it in iPhone 7, my simulator on MAC is running iPhone 7 but I have no idea why it always load iPhone 5s.

any suggestion please?

    Like it's mentioned in the documentation the iOS simulator is available for only VS Enterprise edition.
    Upgrade your VS installation to Enterprise edition to use it.

    @Pashantvc sorry first I missed where it says it only available for enterprise? also I was following some videos on youtube by xamrin and what I understand it is included in enterprise but you can download it otherwise from the link I added.

    And yes it work as well with iPhone 5s simulator for me. If it is only available for enterprise then why it works this way?
