Xcode is the IDE for swift both of which were made by apple, apple has a standalone OS for pcs (MacOS). Why would they release such a tool for windows if it’s use is almost excluded to iOS. Whereas Android studio is an IDE made by google. Android studio has to be cross-platform due to a lack of android OS for pcs. Even more so less of a reason, different developers. Apple is not interested in the cross-platform jitter while google is. It’s also considerably easier to just make something for a single platform as different ones (from a developer viewpoint). Either way I hope this helps.
