iOS Swift Basics An Introduction to Swift Programming An Introduction to Xcode

How can I download Xcode? I am running 10.12.6 and the app store says I need a newer operating system.

I can't download XCode to even being learning swift. Is there anything I can do about this? What steps do I need to take in order to be able to get Xcode?

You can download an older version of Xcode on the Apple Website. Use the link from the answer above.

I don't think the answer from Juan Pablo Lazcano is correct. I had the same issue and If you can't install it from within Apple App Store, visit Apple Developer ( and download the app there. An Apple ID is required.

Xcode is provided as xip file (signed zip). You can simply unzip it by using (i.e. with a double-click).
