Quickly adding a link to the iOS Simulator

I was looking for a way to easily add a link to the iOS Simulator in my ~/Applications folder, but every explanation that worked for Mavericks seemed unnecessarily complicated to me. Here’s what I figured out myself:

  1. Open Xcode and launch the simulator as normal
  2. Control-click on the simulator icon in the dock, and select Options → Show in Finder
  3. Open a terminal, and type ln -s
  4. Drag the simulator icon to the terminal window
  5. Drag the destination for the link to the terminal window, and hit Enter
