Hello,

Can i build Ionic apps for IOS on Windows PC?
I do not have OS X but I need to build my apps for IOS, otherwise i will loose my client.

Can anyone tell me is there any way to build Ionic apps for IOS on Windows?

Thanks in advance …

Short story: No.
Long story: Yes, but you will need to hit some kind of OSX build server somewhere in order to retrieve the .ipa it produces. From there, you can install it via iTunes on your Windows machine.

One way or another, a Mac will need to be involved in the process.

Can I build for IOS using PhoneGap service ?

I started with a windows pc and considered services like macincloud for remote osx access. I determined that option wouldnt work, so purchased a cheap mac mini. This worked, but it was a pain. Building and testing on 2 computers is not fun. Just because it works for ios on the chrome emulator on your PC doesn’t mean its gonna work on a real iPhone.

I bought a macbook pro, and life is much better. That is my advice to you.
