Requirements for building iPhone application
You can build an iPhone application only on a Macintosh computer. Macintosh computers run Mac as their operating system, and are completely different from Windows. You cannot install Mac operating system on a Windows PC as it is hardware dependent. So guys if you own a Windows computer then get ready to shed some money for buying your new Mac. You will feel the difference between them from the day you start using Mac.
Xcode is an integrated development environment developed by Apple. Applications for iPhone/iPad are developed using Xcode in Objective c language. You can download Xcode by registering on Apple’s developer website. Xcode is downloaded as a complete package which consists of a programming environment for writing codes, an Interface Builder for designing pages and an iPhone simulator for testing applications.
Ok, this is not so good part as it involves some more expenditure after you buy your Macbook. Apple needs you to be enrolled in its developer program before you can start putting applications on app store for sale. There are two membership programs, depending on whether you are a company(iOS Developer program Enterprise – $299) or an individual(iOS Developer Program Standard – $99) you can select your membership.
