I can’t download Xcode. Please help. I have updated my MacBook Pro 2012 to the Catalina 10.15.4 On the App Store when I try to download it will get to the end of download and then stops and says ‘unable to download please try again later’. I’ve tried 3 times now and still won’t download.

Xcode's tab/window/file logic is rather weird, if you compare it to other IDEs, but once you get used to it (or around it...), writing apps is a breeze.

Hey all, I'm having a strange error, with installing xcode documentation. I have Xcode 4.6 and when i click to install documentation sets i'll get the error unable to expand documentation doc set, for whatever doc set it is. I can't seem to resolve this, or find a manual way of installing to get around this. Could some one shed some light please? Google hasn't been much help here either. Currently i'm repairing disk permissions to see if there is an issue there, as far as an issue such as disk i/o errors, my hard drive doesn't report any problems with any of the tools i've used to test for damage.

Just a minor hint: I had a lot of crashes with a small project. Turned off "Auto layout" and the crashes went away. At a first glance it seemed as if the project file was corrupt, but it wasn't.

I can't understand all the negative reviews. Have you ever used Eclipse or AppCode? Those are really ugly Apps and while Eclipse or VisualStudio might have some more features, XCode is way easier to use and to learn. Those who have adopted to any of the PC IDEs will always hate XCode, but for those who are new to programming, I can tell you: There is no easier IDE than XCode. You will find your way very quickly. After all, for me XCode rarely crashes (since 4.5) and I use it full time each day.

- Code completion heuristics are more accurate, and use an optimized default data set. - New compiler warnings help identify potential bugs when using ARC and weak references. And I say: Finally!!!

Hey guys, I've been able to update xcode on lion regularly until 4.5.2. I only have one apple ID which is itunes icloud and mac app store. I have xcode 4.5.1 installed on lion 10.7.5 and the app store doesn't show xcode 4.5.2 as an available update. When I go to the purchases section xcode shows that it needs to be updated, however when I click, the app store thinks xcode was purchased on a different account, and refuses to update. Is there a fix for this, so i don't have to do the whole download again from scratch? thanks.

Sweet IDE (S - Integrated Developer Environment) funny thing: most of the things I thought Xcode does wrong was my own misunderstanding. for example, thinking that code-completion could work when I'm not in the right context (forgot a bracket or whatever). Haha ! As Xcode may change over time - like technology does (and hopefully the human mind too) - you have to change with it. If you can't do that you end up in complaining instead of flowing with it. It has changed so many times I can't count it! No problem, just give me a heads-up (please). Of course I don't have zig millions of source code to maintain.

Worst IDE ever. Really. Since the update to the XCode 4 (forced, to be honestly), I'm not coding my apps, I'm FIGHTING. Everyday I'm fighting with all the issue this crapy IDE has: with the syntax highlight being turned off occasionally, with the autocomplete disappearing, with the crashes, crashes and crashes everywhere, with the UI being changed a little bit with every freaking update, that are actually issued twice a month. I have to force myself to work, every single day - just because I HATE this damn XCode. I never had that much bad emotions with XCode3, although it was pretty weak as IDE comparing to, let's say, Visual Studio. Damn, and there is no alternative, actually!

UI is really complex compared to Xcode 3. You can configure it to not do the more stupid things, but it should be by default. It doesn't feel like an Apple app, more like something that has not really been thought about properly. The interface builder is much better though.

More buggy update fun...just when I thought 4.3.1 had cleanly updated, I noticed that the *documentation* for the iOS 5.1 SDK didn't install, with an error icon instead. (It gives me an "access denied for download" error if I retry.) The rest of my components and documentation updated fine after entering my login info... This isn't even the SDK (that's included in the base update), but just the documentation for it! Guess I'll try installing that package again in a day or two and see if it works then. I bet someone at Apple just screwed up the permissions on their servers, since it's a new package and not just an update.

OK, let's see now: 1. Xcode 4.3 can co-exist with previous versions of Xcode. I suggest that you do NOT uninstall the old version, until major issues have been resolved with this one. 2. Xcode 4.3 does NOT have to live in the /Applications directory. You can place it anywhere. You can put it in a separate directory along with all the optional downloadable utilities. There is no need to clutter your /Applications directory. 3. Xcode 4.3 does not have to be downloaded from the Mac App Store. You can also download it using a free developer account from connect.apple.com . 4. It is recommended that you install the commandline tools using the separate installer available from connect.apple.com, rather than from within the Xcode program. 5. After you've installed the commandline tools and decided where you want to place Xcode 4.3, run the following command in terminal to insure that the proper path is set (change the path accordingly if you've installed it somewhere else): sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer Check to make sure the path is set correctly by running this command: xcode-select -print-path && xcodebuild -version The output should look like this: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer Xcode 4.3 Build version 4E109

Have the people at Apple's Xcode group all had lobotomies?? Why didn't they package all the developer tools and utilities with the update to v4.3 ?? Instead, you now have to use the the ever-so lame App Store to update Xcode, and then you have to go to the developer site, login and individually download and install all the updated tools and utilities. What were they thinking?? Where's the logic here? Argh!

Well, Xcode 4.3 is certainly a nice step as far as the packaging and update process go. The new self-contained Xcode.app is 1.6GB now; the old /Developer folder it moved to the trash was 7.2GB! This is because they don't force as many components on you...components for backwards compatibility, etc, are now optional installs. I'm not sure I like all my dev tools/documentation/etc living in /Applications though, but I'll take it over the old method, especially with delta updates supposedly enabled now.

A reminder: You can usually find the latest version of Xcode available for standard download, two weeks after it's made available via the MAS. Just go to connect.apple.com and login (you may need to create a FREE developer account first). Then search for "Xcode 4". Note that this is only for Lion. Access to Xcode 4 for Snow Leopard requires a PAID developer account.

Ugh, a 1.8GB download for a few bugfixes. What ever happened to delta updates, Apple? The App Store still doesn't display this under "Updates" for me, so I had to click install from the download list. I don't mind a large download when it's a real update, but this is a bug fix!

Doesn't show up in "Updates" in the App Store yet, even though it shows up under "Purchased." I'd just download it from its regular page, but there are several reports of installation problems on the App Store comments, making me hesitant to update yet.

FYI, if you don't want to use the app store to download Xcode, you can once again do it the old fashioned way by going to: https://developer.apple.com/downloads/ Then logging in with your Apple ID and password. Just search do a search for "Xcode 4.1" and you're good to go.

OS X Lion and Xcode 4 are great, i.m.o. - But how can I stop a download I've already started in the AppStore? - I appreciate the fact that Xcode is free again, but I do not like to be forced to use the AppStore for updates like this.

Are you kidding me, another 3GB (APP STORE) download just for an update. This is getting out of control. After 26 years of use, I will say Apple you are starting to suck!!! This crapy (APP STORE) plus the release of the crapy Lion OS X 10.7. When will you get your sh** together. It all feels cheap and bloated....
