This is IMO the best approach, but as an addendum you probably want to think 
about whether the scheme should be shared or not.  By default, build schemes 
are per user, so if you have multiple people working on your project you’ll 
need each of them to set this up, and depending on how you’ve set your source 
control up it might also not check in per-user things in the project file (I 
know I tend to set things up so per-user stuff isn’t saved, to avoid bloating 
commits with random Xcode state that nobody else cares about).  There’s a 
“Shared” checkbox on “Edit Scheme…” sheet for that purpose.

IMHO this is quite a confusing area, because by default Xcode auto generates 
schemes and they’ll look them same for everyone who opens a project, which 
leads people to expect that changes they make will persist for everyone else.  
That isn’t the case.

Kind regards,
