1 Answer: 

This is a bug introduced in Xcode 7.2 (and still not fixed as of 7.2.1), see It seems that xcodebuild is not setting correctly the ARCH and PLATFORM_NAME variables when invoked with -sdk iphonesimulator.

There are two known workarounds at the moment, both involve passing extra flags to xcodebuild:

1) Pass the -destination flag, eg:

xcodebuild [...] -sdk iphonesimulator -destination 'platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 6'

2) Override the PLATFORM variable, eg:

xcodebuild [...] -sdk iphonesimulator PLATFORM_NAME=iphonesimulator
