 ## Open a Project in the SDK
 
-Using the Finder app, navigate to the location where you created the
-project. This guide uses `~/Documents/CordovaXY/HelloWorld`.
-Double-click the `HelloWorld.xcodeproj` file to open the project in
-Xcode.
+Use the `cordova` utility to set up a new project, as described in The
+Cordova Command-line Interface. For example, in a source-code directory:
 
-Your screen should look similar to:
+        $ cordova create hello com.example.hello "Hello World"
+        $ cd hello
+        $ cordova platform add android
+        $ cordova prepare              # or "cordova build"
+
+Once created, you can open it from within Xcode. Double-click to open
+the _hello/platforms/ios/hello.xcodeproj_ file.  The screen should
+look like this:

 ## Deploy to Emulator
 
-  1. In the upper-left corner of Xcode, click on the Scheme drop-down list and select the
project name, HelloWorld, as the target.
-  2. Click the device section and select an iOS Simulator such as iPhone 6.0 Simulator as
shown:
-![](img/guide/getting-started/ios/select_xcode_scheme.png)
-
-  3. Click the __Run__ button in your project window's toolbar to build, deploy and run the
application in the simulator.
-
-
-
-## Deploy to Device
-
-  There are several requirements to deploy to a device. Since this information is not related
directly to Cordova, please refer to the _Configuring Development and Distribution Assets_
section of Apple's [Tools Workflow Guide for iOS](http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/Xcode/Conceptual/ios_development_workflow/00-About_the_iOS_Application_Development_Workflow/introduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40007959).
-
-  - Join the Apple iOS Developer Program
-
-  - Create a Provisioning Profile within the [iOS Provisioning Portal](https://developer.apple.com/ios/manage/overview/index.action).
  You can use the Development Provisioning Assistant within the Provisioning Portal to create
and install the profile and certificate for use within Xcode.
-
-  - Verify that the Code Signing Identity in the Code Signing sections of the Hello World
Xcode project settings has been set with your provisioning profile name.
-
-   Deployment Steps:
-
-  1. Plug your device into your Mac via the USB Cable.
-  2. Select the Target and device
-
-    1. In the upper-left corner of the Xcode window, click the Scheme drop-down list and
select the project name, HelloWorld, as the target.
-    2. Click the device section and select your device from the list.  If your device is
plugged in via the USB but not visible in the device list, click the __Organizer__ button
to determine any errors.
-
-  3. Click the __run__ button to build, deploy and run the application on your device.

+To preview the app in the iOS emulator:
 
+1. Make sure the _.xcodeproj_ file is selected in the left panel.
 
+2. Select the __hello__ app in the panel immediately to the right.
 
+3. Select the intended device from the toolbar's __Scheme__ menu, such
+   as the iPhone 6.0 Simulator as highlighted here:

-  All of the code for the sample application is contained within the

-  version-specific `cordova-x.x.x.js` file, as shown in the sample
-  `HelloWorld` application's `index.html`:
-
-      <script type="text/javascript" src="cordova-x.x.x.js"></script>
-      <script type="text/javascript" src="js/index.js"></script>

+3. Select your device from the __Device__ drop-down list. If it is
+   plugged in via USB but still does not appear, press the

-### Missing Headers
-
-  Some users have encountered compilation errors relating to missing headers.  This refers
to a problem in the build location and is fixed via Xcode preferences.
-
-  1.  Within the Xcode menus select __Xcode &rarr; Preferences &rarr; Locations__.
-
-  2. In the __Derived Data__ section click the __Advanced__ button and select __Unique__
as the __Build Location_ as shown:

-
-  This is the default setting for a new Xcode install, but it may be set differently if you
upgraded from an older version of Xcode.
-

-
-  3. Fix Common Problems
-
-      __No Developer Directory Found__
-
-      The “Error: No developer directory found at /Developer” message is displayed if
the create script can not find the location of the command-line tools within Xcode. This can
occur if more than one version of Xcode is installed on the system or when upgrading from
older versions of Xcode.  The solution is to run the xcode-select command to set the location.
 If you have installed Xcode in the default location the command to execute is:
-
-            sudo /usr/bin/xcode-select -switch /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer
-
-      See [http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/xcode-select.1.html](http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/xcode-select.1.html)
for more information on the xcode-select command if you have installed Xcode in a different
location.
-
+* Press __Command-b__ to rebuild the project and eliminate the warnings.
 
+<!-- Does this fix only last until the next "cordova prepare"? -->
 
+__Missing Headers__: Compilation errors relating to missing headers
+result from problems with the build location, and can be fixed 
+via Xcode preferences:
 
-  - __Additional Parameters__
+1. Select __Xcode &rarr; Preferences &rarr; Locations__.
 
-  The default create script copies the necessary common library files from the Cordova distribution
directory into your Xcode project directory.  These files appear within the project's `CordovaLib`
directory.  Some development organizations prefer that developers reference the common Cordova
library files from a fixed location, which helps ensure that all developers use the exact
same copy of the CordovaLib code.  To do this, add the `--shared` parameter to the `create`
command.  The following command creates a project that references the CordovaLib directory
from the iOS directory location in which you run the `create` script:
+2. In the __Derived Data__ section, press the __Advanced__ button and
+   select __Unique__ as the __Build Location__ as shown here:
 
-        ./create --shared ~/Documents/CordovaXY/HelloWorld org.apache.cordova.HelloWorld
HelloWorld
-     The Xcode project files are still in the `~/Documents/CordovaXY/HelloWorld` directory,
but the CordovaLib files are referenced from the Cordova distribution directory.
-  - __Additional Scripts__
+   ![](img/guide/getting-started/ios/xcode_build_location.png)
 
-  Within the cordova-ios/bin directory there is an additional script that changes the location
of the CordovaLib directory to refer to a shared location after the project has been created,
+This is the default setting for a new Xcode install, but it may be set
+differently following an upgrade from an older version of Xcode.
 
-         ./update_cordova_subproject path/to/your/project
+For further information, consult Apple's documentation:
 
-  Most users are satisfied with the default project creation procedure and do not need this
additional script. This script uses the location of CordovaLib directory at the same directory
level as the bin directory from which it is run as the shared location for CordovaLib. To
modify the newly created HelloWorld project to use a shared location for CordovaLib, execute
the following command from the `bin` directory:
