    On my work computer someone else downloaded xcode using there apple id. Can I update by entering my appleID? Can I delete xcode and reinstall it under my apple ID?

    Since it is tied to the Apple ID of the installer/purchaser, you can neither update it with your Apple ID nor can you redownload it with your Apple ID, you have to purchase it yourself.

    Except XCode is free, but you know it is.
