If you want to build iOS apps, the best way to get started is to install Xcode. Here is a little tutorial showing how to do that.

The best way is to get it from the App Store. It will take a while to download since it’s a huge application. Screen Shot 2017-01-22 at 8.36.51 PM.png

Once it’s installed, open Xcode, install components and you are done. If you are a registered developer, you can install it from the apple developer portal.
