~ Xcode 10 includes Swift 4.2 and SDKs for iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12, and macOS 10.14.
~ Xcode 10 requires a Mac running macOS 10.13.4 or later.
~ It is capable of running multiple simultaneous versions of the Xcode App and any associated tools. The interesting thing about Xcode 10 is that it can coexist with the previous version.
Here are the detailed of the new features.
~ Xcode now supports the Dark Mode. You can adopt a dark mode instead of wide light as the appearance. It is a system-wide appearance that is already implemented and adopted by many apps.
~ Dark mode is now available in the Xcode 10. Xcode 10 also enables you to create your own dark apps for macOS. You can also move between the light and dark mode. You can also move your app in and out of Dark mode while debugging.
Xcode 10 supports multi-line editing by selecting multiple lines. If we want to change all functions to private functions, then we can select all lines of func and replace them with private functions.
New Build System
~ The new build system has been activated by default in Xcode 10. We can go to Xcode-Files-Project/Workspace settings options. You will see that there is a Build System option that allows you to select a new build system.
Directly Upload App to AppStore
~ Through Xcode 10, we can directly upload an iOS app to the App Store from the Xcodebuild tool using the following command:
~ “ $ Xcodebuild -exportArchive -archivePath <xcarchivepath> [-exportPath <destinationpath>] -exportOptionsPlist <plistpath> “
~ We need to pass the ExportOptions.plist file containing the key destination and value upload. Furthermore, we have to ensure that Xcode is configured with the right membership details to be able to connect to the Apple developer portal.
Xcode 10 supports running tests in parallel, which reduces the time for takes to run the test. Test parallelization is supported for macOS, iOS and tvOS unit test in simulators.
Version Control Integration
Xcode now supports working directly with a few source code collaboration platforms such as GitHub and GitHub Enterprise, Bitbucket Cloud and Bitbucket server and also GitLab.com and Gitlab self –hosted.
Xcode 10 supports the CarPlay assets and ARKit 3D ARReferenceObject asset. It also supports unit varying image and color assets with light, dark and high contrast appearances on macOS 10.14 and above.
~ We can also create snippets for other languages likes Ruby, php, Python, C++, Obj C, etc.
~ We have to define the shortcut keys for the snippets.
