- [Instructor] Apple's official tool for developing iOS applications is called Xcode. You can find Xcode in the Mac App Store by searching for Xcode, all one word. It should be the first result from that point. Once you click on Xcode, you can click the button to download it. Because I've already installed Xcode, I am seeing the Open button instead of the Download button. Now, if you're paying very close attention to my screen, you may notice that it says the version of Xcode is 8.3.3, but I'm going to be using Xcode 9 for this course.
I'm recording this course just before the official public launch of Xcode 9, so I'm using a version of Xcode that's just about to launch in the App Store but is not quite there yet. By the time you watch this course, you're going to see Xcode 9 in the App Store. So you can just ignore that for now, and everything should be the same as my version of Xcode by the time you're viewing the course. So once you click the links to download Xcode, open it up, and Xcode's going to ask you if you want to install required components.
So once you've downloaded Xcode and installed the additional required components, you're ready to follow along with the rest of the course.
