Hi Michael,

Not sure iOS15 is possible from xcode 12.4 ?

If you were to use the simulator, what version can it go up to?

Seems Apple wants developers only to have the latest platforms to create 
apps for iOS?

I think it means my app can only connect using https instead of http.  Do you know anything about that setting?
