I’m currently in the process to build a portfolio in software engineering before I graduate high school. I’m taking all of the Computer Science classes that my school offers and I’m teaching myself different languages thanks to a few online resources, but one of the issues that I have with all of the classes I’m taking is that we don’t go over iOS development. After researching what it takes to do so, I found out you need a computer running MacOS, may I like to add that the computers that are currently in our Computer Science room run Windows and I own a Windows PC. That’s when I found third-party options that give PC users the ability to develop iOS apps but also Android apps thanks to the cross-compatibility features that they have.
While building and testing your app seems easy, you still need a Mac to build the app file for iOS devices. An easy fix for this can be from buying a Mac, borrowing a friend’s Mac, running a virtual machine on your current computer, or looking at services like MacinCloud which gives you the ability to rent a Mac and running it through your browser.
