We have added support for Xcode 8.0 Beta to our OS X containers.

CircleCI customers can build their apps using Xcode 8.0 Beta. Full support for Xcode 8.0 Beta allows iOS developers using CircleCI to build and test their code for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch apps with the most current tools available. We have also recently updated the developer tools on our container to latest versions.


Getting Started

To start using Xcode 8.0 beta now you can add the following to your circle.yml:

    version: “8.0”

We will be updating the image with newer beta versions as they come out, and eventually with the release version.
