App development relies on a single unified development tool called Xcode. Xcode is free for the curious, but experienced and dedicated developers can get advanced information about updates to iOS by paying a small annual fee to enroll in Apple’s iOS Developer Program. This chapter explains how to install Xcode, how to enroll as a developer, why you need lots of bandwidth for downloads, and why sometimes you’ll have more than one version of Xcode installed at the same time.
