We have added support for XCode 7.2 to our OS X containers.

CircleCI customers can build their apps using Xcode 7.2. Full support for Xcode 7.2 allows OS X developers using CircleCI to build and test their code for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch apps with the most current tools available. We also recently updated the developer tools on our container to latest versions. These tools include CocoaPods, Fastlane, Carthage and XCTool.

Getting Started

The upgrade to 7.2 is opt-in – you can enable it by following the steps here: https://circleci.com/docs/ios-builds-on-os-x/.

We have upgraded our tools to the following versions:

  • xcpretty 0.2.1
  • fastlane 1.48.0
  • carthage 0.11.0
