Installing Xcode on 10.8.5 Mac


My Mac has 10.8.5 OS version. Is there any version for Xcode available for this OS. Cause I tries to down load Xcode but I find that the one available on App store is for 10.10 OS.

Hi ,

Sadly Xcode 5.1.1 is the latest version you can get for OS X Mountain Lion due to library dependency requirements, you can login using your Apple ID at the below link and simply search for Xcode 5.1.1.


Xcode 5.1.1 does not have Swift. Update to the latest Mac OS here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/os-x-yosemite/id915041082?mt=12
