I am currently going through Mosh Hamedani's free video on youtube on react-native. He shows you how to set up all the required software to develop for ios and android. I have a laptop with an AMD cpu though, so the android virtual device wouldn't work for me even though i tried some workarounds i found online. I am just using the web browser to go through the tutorial for the time being. But yes, you can totally use react-native to build ios and android apps.

Mofey My development teams use VS Code. I use both VS Code and phpStorm. While VS Code is more than sufficient, I tend to favor phpStorm. I personally believe phpStorm has much better debugging support for unit tests. Otherwise, they are very similar. That said, XCode and Apple SDK are required to build your iOS application. I personally use a Mac to do that. However, I know others who use VMs, Hackintoshes, and third party services to run their builds remotely. I've just not personally had experience with these other methods. Hope this helps. UPDATE: Expo might be worth looking into: - https://expo.io/ - https://docs.expo.io/

if Windows VScode, Mac - Xcode, but it’s better to test which one is more convenient for you and your PC

VS Code works on Mac as well. XCode is needed just for the build step.
