Known issues
- The Browser widget's native layer is not shown in some Linux distros with Cinnamon window manager.
- The use of the Browser widget is not supported on Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit LTS yet.

Required Software
To build iOS apps with LiveCode you must have the appropriate versions of Xcode as follows:

  - macOS 10.13.4: Xcode 10.1 - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 12.1 SDK
  - macOS 10.14.4: Xcode 11.3.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 13.2 SDK
  - macOS 10.15.4: Xcode 12.4.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 14.4 SDK
  - macOS 11+  : Xcode 13.2.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 15.2 SDK

There is a full list of working LiveCode/macOS/Xcode combinations here:

Note: Whilst we endeavour to release updated versions of LiveCode supporting the latest Xcode/iOS SDKs as quickly as possible; we strongly recommend disabling automatic update of Xcode or downloading the specific version of Xcode required directly from the Apple developer portal and installing it separately.

Important: From the start of April 2022, Apple is only accepting apps built using iOS15.x SDKs. This means that, if you wish to submit apps to the AppStore you will have to be running at least macOS 11 in order to be able to install the necessary version of Xcode.

To build macOS apps with an Apple architecture slice requires macOS High Sierra (10.13) or higher.

Please report any bugs encountered on our quality center at http://quality.livecode.com/

Have fun!
The LiveCode Team
