Introducing Xcode Cloud

Xcode Cloud is a continuous integration and delivery service built into Xcode and designed expressly for Apple developers. It accelerates the development and delivery of high-quality apps by bringing together cloud-based tools that help you build apps, run automated tests in parallel, deliver apps to testers, and view and manage user feedback.

Easy setup

You can set up and start building most apps in Xcode Cloud in just a few minutes, with the build status displayed in Xcode and reports showing the results in Xcode immediately after the build finishes. Xcode Cloud uses the information from your Xcode project to optimize your build settings.

Build in the cloud

Xcode Cloud workflows can automatically build your app in the cloud, eliminating the need for dedicated build infrastructure.

Automated workflows

Configure workflows to suit your development process or use the built-in workflow to get started and customize it as your process evolves. You can build every committed code change and your whole team is instantly alerted if a change introduces any issues — potentially saving days of wasted time before the bug would be found by end users.

Parallel testing

Configure Xcode Cloud to test one or two device types for a quick check on your project’s health, or test a wide range of device configurations less frequently for edge cases. Xcode Cloud allocates resources in parallel to quickly complete the testing job while you and your Mac keep coding.

Xcode integration

Results for your builds and tests — and even feedback on crashes from users — are presented right inside Xcode. As builds happen in the cloud, Xcode shows live status indicators and lets you filter by the build tasks you want to monitor.

Works with TestFlight

Instant deployment to testers

For internal quality assurance teams of up to 100 people, Xcode Cloud works with TestFlight to instantly install new, successful builds to the team so everyone can immediately get started on testing.

Custom groups of testers

TestFlight and Xcode Cloud work together to define groups of external testers (up to 10,000 people who can sign up through a public link or email invitation). Send specific branches of your app with unique in-development features to select testers or do comparison testing as you experiment with new ideas.

App Store Connect dashboard

App Store Connect on the web shows you critical information about your Xcode Cloud builds and testing results, and displays screenshot feedback from testers.

Security and privacy

Xcode Cloud was designed to protect your projects and your privacy, with all data encrypted at rest and access protected by two-factor authentication. Source code is only accessed for builds and the ephemeral build environments are destroyed when your build completes.
