Status:Open Resolved:
Product:Xcode Product Version:12.0
Classification:Bug Reproducible:Always
Linking a target with the CoreNFC framework results in an unavoidable crash on iOS 14 simulators, regardless of "Optional" status in the Build Phases step.

This happens on a brand new project, and any older projects using CoreNFC directly or via a third-party dependency.

The issue does not reproduce on simulator targets with iOS 13.5 or below.
