Build iOS Apps For Free

Apple No Comments on Build iOS Apps For Free 317

You can now build and test iOS apps for free (Ahem… after you buy a Mac).  Previously to be able to build and test iOS apps you had to pay to join the Apple Developer Program.  For $99 a year you were able to download Xcode, gain access to developer resources, and publish your app to the App Store.  Now you can enroll in the Developer Program for free, build and test your app, and only pay the $99 if you decide to distribute the app on the App Store.

This is a great way to play with Swift and iOS development to decide if it’s really what you want to do.

You can find more about the developer program here:

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
