iOS SDK Question

AFAIK the iOS SDK comes with the particular flavour of Xcode and you need to have the correct version of Xcode to match the version of LC on your choice of OS, if you go to Help > Release Notes the version you need is listed under the iOS Platform Support section, about page 4 I think, or bookmark this link for future ref: <>

According to this list, it appears that you need to use Xcode 7.3

Almost every time Xcode or LiveCode updates the connection breaks, so once you have a working combination it’s worth making sure you have a good back-up, especially considering Xcode is over 4.5GB. It also helps to turn off auto software updates and manage them manually.
