How to show touch on iOS Simulator

The other day at work a co-worker needed to record a quick video of the ios simulator showing the tap of the user. As is not trivial to do, let me share the solution. As any macOS app the ios simulator come with a configuration plist and for enabling the single touch you will need to add a new entry on it.

  1. Open a terminal and type this:
defaults write com.apple.iphonesimulator ShowSingleTouches 1

2. Restart the iOS Simulator.

3. Enjoy!
