Apple has announced that Xcode Cloud is now available to all developers.
Xcode Cloud was first announced at WWDC 2021. Over the past year, it has been gradually rolled out in beta for lucky developers.
A year (and a WWDC) later, Xcode Cloud is leaving the beta.
Xcode Cloud is a continuous integration and delivery service built into Xcode. The solution accelerates application development and delivery by bringing together cloud-based tools that help developers build applications, run automated tests in parallel, deliver applications to testers, and view and manage user feedback. users.
Any developer can now register for the service. Four levels are currently available depending on the number of computing hours required:
Compute hours are defined by Apple as the “time used to complete a specific task in the cloud, such as building an application or running automated tests.” Running five tests of 12 minutes each would equal one hour of computing.
Xcode Cloud also works with code repositories including GitHub and GitLab. When you first set up your project, you must authorize Xcode Cloud to access your Git repository. This access will automatically allow you to build and test your code when you make changes to the codebase.
