Branch is now in the public repo.


Most of the work made was just to make it compile and run the iOS Unified under the smaller subset of tvOS.

Some of the renderers that weren't ported yet:

ContextCell, Slider, Switch, Webview, Stepper and the pickers.

There are some issues about sizing of fonts and other renderes that don't work as expected yet.

I say let us do it.

I believe we have an internal branch for this, if we do, let us publish that branch to the public repo, and do the work in public, and figure out what needs to be done.

Let us start a discussion about tvOS support in Xamarin.Forms and how it should be implemented.

tvOS is largely iOS with certain features removed and some new features added. Navigation hints are far more important in tvOS and some features will likely need to be added to forms to provide those hints when needed.
