I have been seeing on web that latest update for Xcode -Xcode 7 beta release has arrived. I currently have xcode 6.4 and i cannot see any update on Appstore. Where can i get it?

  • Note it is not really the latest update but a beta (or currently GM) of what will become the next update - so only use if you can manage a beta - e.g. you can release the results of a build to others – Mark Sep 12 '15 at 12:36
  • Thanks @Mark for info. Can u explain "if you can manage a beta" as in what complexities it holds? ps- I am new to iOS. – Kitty Sep 12 '15 at 12:39
  • You cannot publish from a beta, only from a release. – Tetsujin Sep 12 '15 at 12:42

    Betas are there for you to test for Apple - so you need to be able to deal with bugs and missing features then rerun them in production Xcode and report them to Apple and there will be some. If you are new to iOS I would not do this as you would not know if it is your understanding or the beta that is wrong – Mark Sep 12 '15 at 12:42
  • Well, Thanks for guiding @Mark . This helped me take a decision :) – Kitty Sep 12 '15 at 12:45

From the Apple Developer Downloads page - https://developer.apple.com/xcode/download/

The App store doesn't have Xcode 7 yet since it's still Golden Master status and not released to the world via the App Store downloads.

  • Thanks. Why is it not available on appstore?? And do i need a developer ID for downloading it or my Apple ID would work? – Kitty Sep 12 '15 at 12:36
  • It is not available as it is a beta – Mark Sep 12 '15 at 12:42
  • Betas are not generally available on the App Store; some are available if you are signed up to the beta program, but Xcode isn't one of them. developer.apple.com/xcode – Tetsujin Sep 12 '15 at 12:43
