Xcode on WINDOWS

Hello everyone, I’m trying to download Xcode on my Acer (Windows 7, Intel Pentium Inside) but it doesn’t seem to work. I tried using Virtual Machines, but it doesn’t work because my PC is too old... . Any recommendations ? Do you know other softwares like Xcode that can be run on Windows 7 ? Thank you so much

Xcode is not available for any other operating systems except Mac OS X and iOS. So it is can't be used in windows OS without the use of virtual machines. But if you want to build apps for IOS in your windows then you can use some third party options to do so. You won’t be using Xcode in these solutions but you’ll be able to generate an app that can run on iOS devices👇 1) react native :- Use JavaScript to build native mobile apps. 2) Xamarin :- Use C# to build a mobile app that you can deploy natively to Android, iOS and Windows. 4) Appcelerator :- Build native mobile apps using JavaScript. 5) phone gap:- Build hybrid cross-platform mobile apps using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


You will need Xcode for any case if you need to build iOS app. There were rumors some nerds was able to run build using only iOS SDK and build tools on macOS, but anyway you need macOS and build tools, so if you have all this then better use Xcode. @Arsenic: all your listed options only build the source code, and final build or even prebuild steps are needed to be done on macOS + Xcode BTW you forgot to mention: Cordova and ionic with its newest flavor ionic-capacitor - Cordova is an open source version of paid Adobe PhoneGap and - the Ionic is more modern flavor of Cordova while ionic-capacitor is even more fancy and less-documented version of ionic (also ionic-capacitor was slower for me in Android, but I am not yet big master of this newest capacitor thing)


Thanks a lot !
