View Full Version : System Requirements

Dec 8, 2008, 10:42 AM

I want to develop an app using the iphone sdk.
I am windows user and am planning to migrate to Mac for the same.
What would be the minimum system requirements that I shoould be looking for?
Would 512 MB ram suffice? and what should be the processor speed?

Any current production Mac would be adequate. If you're looking at buying a used machine then Apple stipulates that the SDK requires an Intel machine.

Any Intel Mac running Leopard will meet the requirements. So even if you get a used one, you'll be ok, you might have to upgrade the OS though.

Or you can just read the system requirements yourself on the iPhone developer page ;)
