Apple Introduces Xcode Cloud to Help Developers Build Apps Even Faster
At its WWDC 2021 virtual event, Apple today unveiled new tools and technologies designed to help developers create more engaging app experiences. The company also announced Xcode Cloud, which will help developers build apps even faster.
âWe’re excited to provide our developer community with powerful new tools and technologies to help create even more engaging and better apps, while engaging with their users in whole new ways through the App Store,â said Susan Prescott, vice president of Apple. relationships with developers around the world.
Integrated with Xcode 13, Xcode Cloud is a new continuous integration and delivery cloud service designed specifically for Apple developers.
It gives developers and teams of all sizes a fast and easy way to build, test, and deliver high-quality applications even more efficiently. Xcode Cloud can automatically create apps in the cloud to free up developers’ Macs for other tasks.
With more apps and games featuring events like live competitions, movie premieres, live experiences and more, it’s now easier for users to experience these events directly on the App Store in personalized recommendations, editorial selections, search results and on the app product pages.
Apple is also introducing new product page tools that give developers greater flexibility and new ways to connect with users right in the App Store.
Meanwhile, Apple’s powerful and intuitive programming language Swift now supports built-in competition. This means that developers can more easily write code that works in parallel, which is essential for building applications that respond to user input, while doing more background work.
Finally, RealityKit 2’s new APIs allow developers to create more realistic and complex AR experiences with better visual, audio, and animation control, including custom render passes and dynamic shaders.
Xcode Cloud will be available in a limited free beta starting today, with expanded access throughout this summer and fall.
