VoltBuilder supports Xcode 14.0 and iOS 16.0

The VoltBuilder servers are now using Xcode 14.0, the latest update from Apple. This allows you to build apps for iOS 16.0, which was released last week.

You don’t need to make any changes to your project to use the new release: all VoltBuilder jobs are now processed using it.

Before we went live with the new release, we tested by processing most of an entire day of iOS builds. They executed cleanly, with the same results as Xcode 13.4. We don’t anticipate any problems for you with the new release, but please let is know if you spot anything.

The last version of Xcode supported by PhoneGap Build was 9.2.

What’s New in Xcode 14.0

Xcode 14 includes Swift 5.7 and SDKs for iOS 16, iPadOS 16, tvOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS Monterey 12.3. The Xcode 14 release supports on-device debugging in iOS 11 and later, tvOS 11 and later, and watchOS 4 and later. Xcode 14 requires a Mac running macOS Monterey 12.5 or later.

VoltBuilder provides a high level interface to Xcode, so you don’t have get involved with its installation, complexity and features. We run it on servers with all the latest Apple software, continuously updated.

What’s New in iOS 16.0

iOS 16.0 has a number of new features, described in Apple’s Release Notes.

The builds you make with VoltBuilder will conform to Apple’s latest guidelines for security and App Store approval.
