Hello,
I wanted to know if I can release the Xamarin Forms App for iOS till April 2025 as the Visual Studio Mac support ends in September 2024.

Can I publish Xamarin Forms Android APK and IPA till April 2025?

    Hello,

    Can I publish Xamarin Forms Android APK and IPA till April 2025?

    It depends on the version you want to publish. Xamarin has stopped updating, so for new versions it will not be possible to publish. For already compatible versions you can continue to publish.

    Please refer to Xamarin Releases for more detailed information.

    Xamarin support ended on May 1, 2024 for all Xamarin SDKs including Xamarin.Forms. For more information, please check: Xamarin official support policy | .NET (microsoft.com). We will recommend you upgrade Xamarin projects to . NET MAUI, please see the Upgrade from Xamarin to .NET & .NET MAUI documentation.

    Best Regards,

    Alec Liu.

    Your main limitation is Xarmain is using Xcode 15 and O/S 17 for code signing. If Apple requires a later version of either you will not longer be able to deploy.

    note: 4/29/2024 is when apple made Xcode 15 & os 17 the requirement.
