I have been reading through the apple documentation for creating frameworks for OSX and iOS.
Reading about the structure of frameworks, I began to wonder if there is really any need to create the symlinked folder structure described if you are targeting iOS only.
The structure supports multiple internal major versions of a framework. This is intended to allow programs to share a single copy of a framework, whether they are using the current version or an older version. Frameworks are all installed into a single location in OSX
It seems this structure was created to allow maximum code reuse.
However, on iOS each application will be installed into its own sand box with its own copy of any frameworks.
Considering this, I'm not convinced the same symlinked directory structure is necessary for an iOS only framework.
What are the advantages of keeping the suggested OSX framework directory structure?
