I am trying to create a new nib file in my empty iPhone application project in XCode.

I go to File -> New, after which XCode presents me with these options.

enter image description here

I tried selecting "Objective-C category" and then selecting "UINib."

enter image description here

However, doing so just created a .h and .m file instead of a .xib file. How do I create new nib (.xib) file in XCode 4.3?

Under iOS (in your first screenshot) select User Interface, from there you can select Empty to add a blank nib. There are also options there to create initial nibs for a View, Window, or Application.
