Do I really need ipa file to run my Xamarin.UITest on AppCenter (Simulator)

I have my repository on dev.azure.com, which contains:
1. My iOS App
2. My Xamain.UITest

I have correctry configured AppCenter to Build my iOS App (1).
Now, I'd like to run my Xamarin.UITest with Simulator (real device is not required).

I started to configure AppCenter to run my Xamarin.UITest, but the step 3 requires ipa file:

appcenter test run uitest --app "MYACCOUNT/iOSApp" --devices 1c697216 --app-path pathToFile.ipa  --test-series "master" --locale "en_US" --build-dir pathToUITestBuildDir

IPA

pathToFile.ipa

Is there a way to run Xamarin.UITest without MAC and without IPA?

    I did this:

    1. I rented a MAC via MacinCloud
    2. I connect to it remotely
    3. I run the iOS application on the simulator (from the rented MAC)

    Thank you for your suport

    BTW:
    No configuration is required on the rented MAC.

    So, even with the AppCenter I need to have a MAC to test the iOS application?

    My goal is of course to test the iOS application without having a MAC - just on the simulator. Any solutions?
