Xcode is Apple's official Integrated Development Environment, or IDE, for developing iOS applications. Using Xcode, you can code, debug, and develop user interfaces for iOS apps. This video shows where to find Xcode, and how to install it on your device. The only prerequisite is that you have an Apple ID, which you can get for free.
- [Voiceover] You can find Xcode in the Mac App Store.…In the App Store, just search for Xcode, all one word,…and it should be the first item that you see…in the search results.…So here we have Xcode…so you can click on that,…and then you're taken to the Xcode product page.…Now on my screen it says, "Open,"…because I've already downloaded and installed Xcode.…But Xcode is free and you can download it right here…by clicking the button that you should see…on your screen if you don't have it installed already.…Now if you're wondering what operating systems…support Xcode, you can find that…on the right side of the screen.…
So you'll see the compatibility is 10.10.5 or later.…And you can see the file size and the version, et cetera.…So click the link to download and install Xcode…and then you're ready to move on with the course.…
