Right click Target and hit Refresh. In the latest version it does a query to the PAServer to get the actual list of IOS devices it can simulate and you pick from that list. But your IDE doesn't have a real list yet. You may need to open XCode and or the IOS Simulator program for it to be able to get the list.

Hi Quinn,

When I tried to download, it said I didn't have access to that
submission, but I do have a registered Delphi XE8 Professional, with
mobile add-on. Suggestions?

I was able to download and it did in fact fix the errors reported
re the fact you can not, try contacting support?

Run the License Manager application and make sure your serial number is registered to the account you are using to try to download the hotfix with.

Yes, it is registered to the account I'm logged into, and I do have the
update subscription.

Make sure you have an active support contract. Remember from XE8
without support you have no right to download hotfixes.

model we are
pushing forward. It is "almost" mandatory..."

Delphi Professional standalone cannot create mobile applications, so
does not have access to this download. You would minimally need the
Mobile Add-On pack to create mobile applications and to have access to
this hotfix.

As I indicated in the email, I do have the mobile add-on. For some
reason, the mobile add-on doesn't show up in my list of registered
products. I don't recall it asking to register when I installed it.

You can register it via License Manager (Help->License Manager...). Select "Add Serial..." to add your mobile addon serial number if you don't see it. Afterwards, click over the serial and select "Register...". This will make your liecnse appear on "My registered products" section

Thanks Borja. I've been trying to do just that, but License Manager is
hanging when I click Ok after entering the serial number, with the
message "Initializing..." I'll try it again later. Maybe it isn't
able to connect to Embarcadero to add the license to my registered list.

It is a good idea to try it later. You can also try to disable your antivirus system as sometimes they give problems
