Start developing iOS apps

We will explain briefly the first steps to begin developing applications for iOS devices.

It is necessary to mention that, in order to develop applications for iOS devices, it is absolutely necessary to have a computer with Mac OS X. If your goal is to upload applications to the Apple AppStore, it is highly recommended that you also keep your system and developer tools up-to-date.

Even if you do not plan to enroll to the paid iOS Developer Program, which provides you the ability to distribute your apps on the AppStore; you are required by Apple to register yourself as developer. If you have not already done so, you can not do it now following this link.

Once registered and authenticated to the DevCenter of iOS, you have access to the downloads section. There you can click on Xcode’s Mac AppStore link and start downloading it through the AppStore application on your Mac.

Xcode is the development environment that offers Apple for developing iOS applications.

After installation, you will find Xcode in your Applications folder.
