Apple has now enabled paid subscriptions for its cloud-based Xcode CI system for developers.
Get started by configuring a workflow in Xcode and receive 25 compute hours per month at no cost until the end of 2023. And now, Account Holders can subscribe for more compute hours in the Apple Developer app
Pricing was previously announced at WWDC 2022, ranging from $14.99USD (25 compute hours/per month) to $399.99USD (1000 compute hours/per month).
Until now, Apple had been offering the service for free. The entry-level $14.99 tier will remain free until December 2023.
Coinciding with the announcement, there’s also an update available (v10.1.1) for the Apple Developer app that adds a new section in the Account tab that allows you to see your Xcode Cloud subscription. From within the app you can manage which pricing tier your team is on.
