January 2023: Article by Colin Moore, Mobile Application Release Manager
Background – Xcode and iOS Software Development Kits (SDK)
KP developers use Apple’s SDK and Integrated Development Environment (IDE), Xcode, to create, debug, and test mobile applications. Updates to both of these require planning, testing, and possible app releases.
Starting April 2023, all iOS and iPadOS apps submitted to the Apple App Store and Intune must be built with Xcode 14.1 or later and the iOS 16.1 SDK. Get your apps updated now and plan on having your next release built with Xcode 14.1.
