AppCode 2022.1 Help

Xcode

Item

Description

Download Xcode caches automatically

If the checkbox is selected, the Xcode caches will be downloaded silently every time Xcode is updated. Otherwise, the dedicated dialog will appear where you can choose if you want to download the caches or not.

Selected Xcode

Specify the path the Xcode.app that will be used by AppCode.

By default, AppCode automatically detects the path to the existing Xcode installation. If the code in the editor is not highlighted properly, and the list of simulators in the run/debug configuration selector is empty, most likely, AppCode cannot find the path to the supported Xcode installation. In this case, make sure that you:

  • Have a supported version of Xcode installed on your Mac.

  • Have launched Xcode at least once before starting AppCode. It is necessary because you need to accept the License Agreement and install some additional system components beforehand.

For more information on why AppCode needs Xcode, refer to Migration from Xcode. To learn which Xcode features are currently unavailable from AppCode, see Xcode functionality not available in AppCode.
