Swift 3 - Setting Up Xcode 8 and Swift 3


It's very easy to setup Xcode 8 and Swift 3 on your Mac. Just go to developer.apple.com/xcode then you'll be redirected to Apple Xcode website. After that just click the download button on the right top side then you'll be redirected again into the login page of Apple Developer. So in this case the first you must have Apple ID, if you don't you can create the Apple ID first then continue to download Xcode 8.
When the download is completed, just unzip the downloaded file then just drag or move into Applications folder on the left side of Finder window. When it's complete you going to run it and Xcode 8 will use Swift 3 by default.

The next is the last step on setting up Xcode 8. Just go to Xcode preferences, you can press Command + , or just go to Xcode menu then choose Preferences.


Then just go to the Accounts tab, this will allow you to sign in with your Apple ID and your developer account. You can get a developer account for free and you have to pay when you start releasing your apps. So it's good idea to do this last step in order to avoid sign in trouble or warning while compiling the code or running it on a simulator.


Alright guys that's all about setting up Xcode 8 and Swift 3. And it's so easy right?. In the next lesson we will learn about Setting Up The Playground, so just keeping update and we will learn Swift 3 easily. Thank you very much and see you next time in the next lesson.
