Using iOS 6.1 as Base SDK in Xcode 5

Xcode 5 seems to remove all iOS SDKs, except for iOS 7. If you need to build an app for iOS 6 (and retain the iOS 6 UI & behaviour), then you'll need to re-download the iOS 6.1 SDK and symlink it into Xcode's SDK directory:

sudo ln -s iPhoneOS6.1.sdk/Applications/

There are a couple of solutions in the linked Stack Overflow topic. This answer has a download link to the iOS 6.1 SDK, without having to re-download Xcode 4.
