How To Develop and Publish an iOS App without a Mac?

Forum
App Development and Programming

I am building up an Application For Android and ios. I worked with the Mac from my organization however now I change the Activity and in the following organization I dont have Mac System.

Presently the primary idea was to purchase a modest and utilized Mac to have the option to proceed with our work.

However, I am hesitant to purchase a Macbook for several Euro just to create and distribute the Application.

To the individuals who previously fixed that Issue.. How could you do this? What are options?

It seems to be possible by using a cloud service to build and publish the app. There are a couple of solutions out there, you might be able to do it with Firebase, for example. Here's a guide that talks about using CodeMagic, and a Flutter app, but the principle of what their doing here should translate for other scenarios.

You can either use a MacOS virtual machine, or rent a cloud server that happens to be a Mac, although I'm not sure on the accessibility of that (e.g. if you can get VO audio).

Most of the time, iOS apps are developed and distributed from macOS machines. It's hard to imagine developing apps for the iOS platform without macOS. However, with the combination of Flutter and Codemagic, you can develop and distribute iOS apps without using macOS.
