About this video:
Every day, I get people asking me how to download Xcode on Windows or how to do iOS app development if they’re on a PC. In the past, I used to just send a list of PC alternatives for Xcode but in this video, I decided to dive deeper with a step by step tutorial on how to set up one of these Windows alternatives.

I’ll be honest, getting access to a physical Mac computer is going to be the best solution but if that’s just not possible for you, then the method I demonstrate in this video is probably the next best option.

    Your mean

  4. The Silent Martyr says

    I've always had an interest in coding. I did things called "Commands" on the game Minecraft. I could customize the world to what I wanted, and how I wanted to to work. Since then, I've realized my passion is for coding, but I never knew how to make an app. Then I found you! I don't have an app idea yet, but I want to know how to make one. I was watching the other video of yours where you said XCode was for Mac PCs only. This broke my heart, but then you linked to a video about how to do it on Windows, which I have. Wish me luck on making an app that will help many!

  5. Jlema Matundu says

    Hey Chris! May you create another series of app developing tutorials for Android and IOS using an IDE software.

  15. Ghee tube says

    Hey Chris! can we download xcode in ipados

  16. EDU-WARE says

    Xcode for Windows …… NOT 🙁 This is just the Old stories all over. If you want to develop IOS on Windows. Well as the video shows. You can't so Xcode for Windows is just yet another click hungry misleading title. A shame I was so excited just to be disappointed after a buildup of possible very old ways of doing it just to discover this is just a glorified add for a virtual Mac.

  17. C T says

    Can you make a guide how to install IOS in a virtualbox on windows 10?

  21. Mohammed Aden says

    Hi CodewithChris, I have a mac air, but I am not so fond of the MacOS UI, now if I install windows, will I be able to fully develop ios apps? Or is the MacOs integral to that part.

    Hi, awesome video Chris. I signed up with MacStadium and installed TightVNC, but for some reason when i try to connect to the server I get the following error: "Error in TightVNC Server: No security types supported. Server sent security types, but we do not support any of them." I am running the latest version of TightVNC available for download on their website. Do you know what's going on or if there are any good alternatives to TightVNC?
