Supported operating systems for development
Mac computer running macOS Mojave (10.14) or macOS High Sierra (10.13) is required.
Software requirements for development
To develop apps with this release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS, you can use any version of Xcode 10 and iOS 12 SDK. You can use Objective-C or Swift to develop your apps. It's recommended that you use the latest version of Xcode to ensure that you have Apple's latest bug fixes, language support, and enhancements to both Xcode and the iOS SDKs.
Note:Beta and GM seed versions of Xcode or iOS SDK are generally not supported unless otherwise noted.
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.
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.
Requirements for ArcGIS software and connected services
To use ArcGIS Server data or services in your app, use ArcGIS Server version 10.2 (or higher). To use ArcGIS Server data when your app is offline, use ArcGIS Server version 10.2.2 (or higher).
To create mobile map packages for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 1.3 (or higher).
To create mobile scene packages for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 (or higher).
To create annotation layers for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 (or higher). Annotation layers can be published to mobile map packages or to a service that uses ArcGIS Enterprise version 10.7 (or higher).
ArcGIS Desktop version 10.3 (or higher) is required if you're using the Create Runtime Content capability. You can create ArcGIS Runtime SDK content in ArcMap's user interface or with the Create Runtime Content geoprocessing tool.
ArcGIS Runtime SDK works with ArcGIS Enterprise version 10.2 (or higher) portals. However, when your app uses web maps, it must use web maps built with the 2.0 (or higher) version of the web map specification, which come from Enterprise version 10.2 (or higher) portals. When you save a web map from an app, you are saving a web map that adheres to version 2.9 of the web map specification. These should only be saved back to portals that support the 2.0 web map specification.
Versions of supported specifications
