Xamarin.iOS 15 / Xcode 13

Mike Muegel 111 Reputation points

Usually there is a blog post providing steps to download pre-release versions of Xamarin.iOS. I could not find this and I see nothing in my preview channel in Visual Studio. What's up?

    The real answer to my question is at https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/issues/12778:

    If you updated to Xcode 13, you have 3 options:

    You can download Xcode 12.5 from the downloads page in the Apple Developer Portal and continue to use it.
    If you need to keep Xcode 13 but want to use our current stable d16-10 bits you will need to install the following in you macOS machine
    Use a build from our xcode13-ios branch, this is where our next stable release is coming out and it includes all the iOS 15 SDKs APIs, that said we are still ironing it out.

    The issue comments has feedback on what currently works and does not.

    Hi t9mike,

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    We can get all the released Xamarin.iOS under the link: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/releases. There is no "Xamarin.iOS 15" released yet.

    The corresponding Xamarin.iOS will be released after Apple releases the non-beta version of Xcode. You can track the progress at:

    You will have to downgrade to Xcode 12.5.1 to get things working again. My Mac updated Xcode overnight because I flagged my computer to "stay up to date". After that Visual Studio for Mac could no longer see any emulators nor could I deploy to any connected device. Costed me half a day to downgrade XCode :-(. After that all works fine again. The older Xcode versions can be found here: https://developer.apple.com/download/more/
