Apple will soon expand access to the Xcode Cloud beta
Apple last year announced Xcode Cloud, a new platform that allows developers to speed up the development process by running automated tests and other tasks in the cloud. Although the platform is still available in private beta, Apple says access will soon be extended to more developers, while the official launch is still expected later this year.
In an email seen by 9to5Mac, Apple thanks the developers who have been invited to test Xcode Cloud since last year’s beta. The company says the beta program is “moving forward with over 10,000 developer teams activated” and also highlights some updates that have been made so far.
However, what’s most notable about the email is that Apple revealed that access to the Xcode Cloud beta will be extended to more developers “over the next few weeks”, which suggests that more developers will be invited to try out the platform in February.
The email also reaffirms that Xcode Cloud will be officially released for all developers later this year, although no specific date was provided.
Thank you for participating in the Xcode Cloud beta, which is running well with over 10,000 developer teams activated. Developer feedback is extremely valuable in helping us refine the product.
The beta program will continue to expand over the next few weeks, and Xcode Cloud is on track to be generally available to developers this year. We will share more information closer to general availability.
More details on how Xcode Cloud works can be found on the Apple developer website.
