iOS SDK: the same version as Xcode?

Post by turbolaserguy » Wed Apr 03, 2019 12:55 pm

Hi, I have been trying to start developing for the iOS. And I have a question.
My Xcode version is 9.4.1. But when I try to configure LiveCode to be able to build iOS standalones, I get the message: “Your iOS SDK version has tobe among 6.1, 7.1, 8.2, 9.2, 10.1).” :|
Are the iOS SDK version numbers the same as those of corresponding Xcode version numbers? If yes, should I downgrade my Xcode 9.4.1 into 9.2?

Hi, the Xcode version you need depends on the LC version you are used.

For LC 9.0.3 (last stable version) you should use Xcode 10.1.

Hope it helps.

Regards
Simon

Thank you for replying.
I hear bad reputation about Mojave, so I won’t update my macOS to Mojave and stay with High Sierra. Since Xcode 10.1 only runs on Mojave Macs, I have to use Xcode 9.x.x.
So, is the version numbers of iOS SDK are the same as corresponding Xcode version? If yes, I think I’ll install Xcode 9.2. Do you think it’s a good move?

I have been using Mojave since it was made available without any problem so far. I should mention I'm not a heavy user. Basic mail, spreadsheets, social network stuff and LC development.

Nope, you should have a look at this post

They are not

I prefer to stay alway up to date both with macOS and LC

Be aware that as of March, 2019, Apple will only accept apps that are now being made with Xcode 10.1. The newest version of LC will compile to that version.

Dear community,

I'm using LC 9.0.3 and 9.0.4 (RC2) on a Mac with MacOS Mojave 10.14.4.

I wonder if I can use the latest xCode 10.2 that was released now in April, or if I have to go for the older 10.1? I guess xCode 10.2 is not tested for LC 9.0.3 or 9.0.4 (RC2)?

On the LiveCode web page xCode/IOS FAQ it says LC 9.0.3 supports xCode 10.1 (Mac OS 10.13.4+ with iOS 12.1), while the latest xCode from Apple 10.2 support iOS 12.2.

Kind regards
Arvin

As I understand (and use) you should stay with XCode 10.1
