An Xcode project is a repository for all the files, resources, and information required to build one or more software products. A project contains all the elements used to build your products and maintains the relationships between those elements. It contains one or more targets, which specify how to build products. A project defines default build settings for all the targets in the project (each target can also specify its own build settings, which override the project build settings).

An Xcode project file contains the following information:

A project can stand alone or can be included in a workspace.

You use Xcode schemes to specify which target, build configuration, and executable configuration is active at a given time.
