|Apple Introduces Developer Xcode Cloud|
|Thursday, 10 June 2021|
Apple has announced new developer tools and features during this year's WorldWide Developer Conference (WWDC), including Xcode Cloud, a new integration and delivery service built into Xcode 13, improvements to Swift, and developer-focused improvements to Apple App Store.
Xcode is Apple's integrated development environment for macOS. Xcode can be used to write in a number of languages including AppleScript, C, C++, Java, Objective-C, Python, Ruby and Swift.
Xcode Cloud has tools for building, testing, and delivering apps using cloud services. It is part of Xcode 13, and can be used to automatically build apps in the cloud. It supports parallel testing in the cloud so developers can test on a simulated version of every current Apple device, deploy a build of the app for internal testing, or deliver to external beta testers through TestFlight.
The changes to App Store mean developers can include app features such as live competitions and live-streamed experiences, and have those events more available to potential users on App Store through recommendations, editorial selections, search results, and on app product pages. Apple says this expands the reach of developers’ events and provides a whole new way for developers to showcase what’s happening in their apps. The new facilities include product page tools including Custom Product Pages so you can show different features in an app for different users, while Product Page Optimization can be used to test different screenshots, preview videos, and even app icons. Improved analytics in App Store Connect make it easier to see what users like most.
The changes to Swift start with built-in concurrency support so code can run in parallel. The SwiftUI has also been updated to minimize the amount of code required to create user interfaces, with better list views, search experiences, in-app accessibility features, and multicolumn tables..
