control an arduino with the iOS simulator in Xcode

Hi all,

I am beginning to learn iOS programming with Xcode, and already tried some basic things with Arduino. Right now I want to create a simple iOS app in Xcode that will control an arduino board (just a simple led on/off) attached to the USB port of my Mac. My goal is to do that wirelessly, but i don;t have a wifi shield yet, so i just want to try with the USB first.

Do you know if it is possible to do that with iOS simulator within Xcode? If yes, what is the framework for the serial communication? Any links to similar projects or documentation?


I am looking for the exact same answer, 1 button GUI that turns a specified pin high when the button is pressed. Does anyone have a link to a simple example or tutorial?
