Classification:Serious Bug Reproducible:Always

Scheme settings provide an option to override application data (Product->Scheme->Edit Scheme->Options->Application Data). It works as expected on real device, but doesn't do anything on simulator.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Make an .xcappdata bundle with application data
2. Add it to an Xcode project
3. Select the data bundle in scheme options (Product->Scheme->Edit Scheme->Options->Application Data)
4. Launch the app on Simulator

Expected results:

App is launched with supplied application data

Actual results:

Application data is not changed

Xcode version:

Xcode 7.2 beta 2 (7C46t)


Added an example project that fetches a string from user defaults. Two versions of application data is added to the project.
