TestFlight Finally Coming to The Mac

Share

Apple today announced that TestFlight, which allows developers to public test their apps before launch, will be coming to the Mac as part of wider tools meant to improve app development.

TestFlight for the Mac is part of a wider set of tools for developers, including Xcloud Cloud, which offers “continuous integration and delivery cloud service designed specifically for Apple developers.” With the new service, developers in teams can now easily test, develop, and deploy apps more efficiently. Xcloud Cloud also allows developers to build apps in the cloud, freeing up local space on the Mac.

Xcode Cloud is a new continuous integration and delivery cloud service designed specifically for Apple developers. Built into Xcode 13, Xcode Cloud offers a fast and simple way for developers and teams of all sizes to build, test, and deliver high-quality apps even more efficiently. Xcode Cloud can automatically build apps in the cloud to free up developers’ Macs for other tasks. Parallel testing in the cloud means developers can test on a simulated version of every current Apple device, then easily deploy a build of the app for internal testing, or deliver to external beta testers through TestFlight for instant feedback.

Apple also announced changes coming to augmented reality including Object Capture which offers an easy way to capture real-world objects and create photo-realistic models with the iPhone, iPad, and DSLR cameras. Swift Playground 4, which allows users to build and distribute apps to the App Store from the ‌iPad‌ was also announced.
