Xcode Testing ML model for your app without running on the device

As of this writing, testing the image detection ML model inside the simulator (I am using Xcode 14.0 beta 3), won’t work if you are targeting iOS or iPadOS, you have to use an actual device. But now I stumbled onto the fact that if you can make your app, run for the “My Mac (Designed for iPad)” target, you can actually test the ML model without installing it on an actual device. So next time you need to work on the integration of an ML model in your app, you can use the “My Mac (Designed for iPad)” target, and move trough development without a problem. I do hope in future versions, you will be able to run ML models inside the simulator.
