    What is minimum requirements as in specs for Xcode?

    I don't code at moment, but it's a maybe sometime. I'm just wondering what is the specs required.

    Also could the 2018/2019 Air cope? Does anyone code on a MacBook? It's just I have a 2012 iMac but thinking of selling and going MacBook route.

    Thanks

    2018/2019 Air can run Xcode easily. I have no information on the official requirements, but any halfway modern Mac should have no issues.

    I run it on a 2013 MBP without problems

    That's good thanks. MBP do have more grunt than Air's though.

    I can't see on Apple site what minimum specs are which is strange...

    Probably because its depending on the OS version. E.g. the latest Xcode(beta) requires Catalina; so by and large I guess its safe to assume the latest Xcode for the operating system you are running is just fine

    Only thing I noticed takeing some time is the iDevice simulator starting up.
