Hi, @Aminegac,

If you’re a little more technically savvy, you can use virtualization software and run a “virtual Mac” on your PC.

You can use VisualStudio Dev on Window, i saw them released a Kit supporting for IOS and Android device- I think if you earn enough money, you should buy Mac laptop, which is easily compatible with IOS devices

@Nikita thank you for the reply , i wanted to avoid buying mac , also i saw that virtualization solution but it is little bit risky since it has no legit solution for it , i mean not apple solution but only anonymous people who made effort in developping mac emulators , i think that's not as consistant as android emulators because to run a hole virtual laptop is not that easy in terms of performance , also to do that solution is a long way using a lot of commands and configs .also emulator will probably make some data and maybe all data to get lost each time you close the virtual mac and the laptop itself and restart it . 

so my main question is ; on visual studio can i run xcode code and build apps just like on a mac? is the swift UI also in visual studio or not swift ui things to do there ? 


To start building your first Mac app, do these steps:

  1. Connect to your repository service account (GitHub, Bitbucket, VSTS, Azure DevOps).
  2. Select a repository and a branch where your app lives.
  3. Configure the build's project or workspace, and the scheme you want to build.
@Nikita thank you , but is that process on visual studio windows or MAC? because i do not own a mac , but i have an ios app that i want to try modifying and upgrading from windows .

I mentioned the step accordingly on MAC products as you mentioned "can I run xcode code and build apps just like on a mac"?

I will check and let you know here that how is it possible to set up on IOS systems. 

great , thank you @Nikita , but  that question was on windows platform comparing to on MAC ; i did not meant how to run xcode on MAC , as i mentionned i do not own a mac , i wanted to know if it is possible to modify an xcode on windows and build the ios app on windows in 2020 ?? :) because swift is just released in windows 2 months ago iin visual studio.
