Xcode includes everything developers need to create great applications for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. Xcode provides developers a unified workflow for user interface design, coding, testing, and debugging. The Xcode IDE combined with the Swift programming language make developing apps easier and more fun than ever before.
Xcode includes the Xcode IDE, Swift and Objective-C compilers, Instruments analysis tool, simulators, the latest SDKs, and hundreds of powerful features:
Innovative tools help you create great apps
• Swift is a revolutionary programming language that is safe, fast, and modern
• Playgrounds are a fun way to experiment and interact with Swift code
• Interface Builder displays pixel-perfect UI for each target device and can edit at any zoom level
• View debugging shows a 3D stack of all your app's UI view layers at runtime
• Assistant editors show content related to your primary task
• Live Issues display errors as you type, and Fix-its can correct mistakes for you
Swift is a powerful, modern, and fun programming language
• Safe by design, Swift syntax and features prevent entire categories of bugs
• Fast code execution and compile time are powered by the proven LLVM compiler
• Modern language features are inspired by leading research, including:
- Closures unified with function pointers
- Tuples and multiple return values
- Structs as value types that support methods, extensions, protocols
- Powerful protocols that can extend functionality throughout your codebase
- Functional programming patterns including map and filter
Interface Builder makes it easy to design your interface without code
• Storyboards let you arrange the complete flow of screens within your app
• See your custom controls rendered live within the design canvas
• Customize your interface for different devices, screen sizes, and orientations
• StackViews make it easy to reason about the layout of each section of your interface
• Create connections from your GUI design directly to the related source code
Professional editor and debugger keep your code front and center
• Hit a few keys and Open Quickly will instantly open any file within your project
• Message bubbles show errors, warnings, and other issues right beside your code
• Data tips show a variable's value by hovering your mouse over the code
• Quick Look variables while debugging to see the actual color, bezier path, image, and more
• Third party app extensions can add new capabilities to the source editor
Test driven development is built right in
• Use the Test Navigator to add, edit, or run unit tests or user interface tests with just a click
• Test Assistant makes it easy to edit your code and related tests, side-by-side
• Create continuous integration bots using macOS Server to automatically build and test your apps
• Monitor performance and user interface test data using macOS Server to immediately spot regressions
• Analyzer travels countless code paths looking for logical errors before they become bugs
Instruments makes performance analysis beautiful
• Compare CPU, disk, memory, and OpenGL performance as graphical tracks over time
• Identify performance bottlenecks, then dive deep into the code to uncover the cause
• Monitor your app directly, or sample the entire system, with very little overhead
To test or deploy applications on an iOS device, Apple TV, or on Apple Watch all you need is a free Apple ID. To submit your apps to the App Store you must be a member of the Apple Developer Program. Continuous integration features require a current version of macOS Server. Some features may require Internet access.
What's New in Version 8.2.1
Xcode 8.2.1 includes Swift 3, and SDKs for iOS 10.2, watchOS 3.1, tvOS 10.1, and macOS Sierra 10.12.2.
Xcode 8.2.1 fixes an issue where incorrect Swift version warnings were displayed
New in Xcode 8.2:
• Touch Bar gains new actions and can be customized
• Simulator installs an app by drag-and-drop onto the Simulator window
• Additional bug fixes and stability improvements
Are you seroius!!!???? It took hours to install that app, and then it asks me to install it, to run it. I have to accept an agreement that i can’t accept because it says: Xcode wants to make changes, type an administrator name and password to allow this. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THIS IS NOT MY COMPUTER! SHAME!!!!!!
For example, starting with “#include <iostream>” is giving me and error and telling me to not include the hashtag. Then its telling me i need a “;” between “using and namespace std;” it wont let me run and compile nothing works period. Someone point me in the direction of something better than this.
Xcode must be embarassing to Apple
It must feel weird to Apple, being 10 years behind Microsoft’s visual studio for development. Its painful using this tool, and every version is buggy. This latest version was the worst update yet, I can no longer do command+/ block commenting, I can no longer search my code (! this is killer for me!) the search box just creates new lines when I hit return instead of searching! I can no longer use the debug console - like the code search, it is just generating new lines instead of executing the debugger commands I have entered. True, Xcode used to be even worse years ago, but even with all the progress its still a joke. The interface is clunky and agonizingly inefficient to use. The other negative reviews are 100% correct (“a broken childs toy”). I wonder if the few people giving it high ratings are either Apple employees or just haven’t used any other development tools and don’t know any better? I seriously hope they can one day salvage this, but I’m not expecting it.
