Request: MacOS Remote USB - please bring it back. #5442
This feature got a standing ovation at Evolve 2016. It was around for about a week, then pulled.
The thread for it on Xamarin Forums still has people wanting to know when this will be available again.
Please bring this back - when it was there it worked great.
Steps to Reproduce
To remotely use an iOS device connected to the Windows PC, as if it were connected directly to the Macintosh build host that is commonly in a rack someplace other than the developer desk.
Worked great at Evolve 2016 - then disappeared.
Windows has the iOS device connected by USB.
Nothing to log
Example Project (If Possible)
No example required
Related to #1360 where it was simply closed as 'wrong area' but the closer didn't mention what would be the right area. @johnhair suggested the iOS area.
@tlhintoq GitHub issues are meant for the open sourced SDK . The best place for IDE (or non-open source) feature requests is Visual Studio Community https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/spaces/8/index.html
 we can sync the issue to our internal bug tracker so the XVS (Windows side team will see the issue) but that does not have the exact same visibility.
@tlhintoq in both cases (here or Visual Studio Community) there will be an internal issue created, so "team wise" it's identical (same end result).
You might get more external visibility (e.g. more community comments) in Visual Studio Community since this is where the IDE (both Windows and Mac) redirect their users for feedback.
