Supported operating systems for development
Intel-based Macintosh running Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8.4 or higher) or Mavericks (OS X 10.9) is required.
Software requirements for development
XCode 5 and iOS 7 SDK (or higher) are required to develop applications with ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS.
The iOS Dev Center contains technical resources for developing iOS apps. You must to register as an Apple developer to acces Apple programming guides, samples, videos, forums, downloads, and more.
iOS version 6 or higher is required to run applications built with ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS on Apple devices. These devices include, but are not limited to iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5c, 5s), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad ( 2, 3rd generation, 4th generation, mini).
Although Apple's iOS SDK contains a simulator, which provides a convenient way to run iOS applications on your Mac, it is recommended that you test your applications on actual devices to ensure they work and perform as expected. Testing on the simulator alone does not provide a good measure of how the application performs on the physical device.
To run applications on a device, enroll in the iOS Developer Program. Depending on how you intend to distribute your application, through the Apple App Store, or in your organization or institution, you can choose the appropriate program for your needs.
