Which mac do I need to compile and deploy VS Xamarin Forms apps

I'm new to Xamarin, phone apps, and have never owned a mac, and my understanding is I need a mac to deploy iOS Xamarin apps. Can someone please provide some guidance on hardware / software requirements?

Thanks.

    A mac mini would suffice, as long as it a mac that is new enough to run macOS Sierra.

    Thanks. Do I need any special software installed on the mac?

    Yes, the Apple software development kit. It is called XCode, + the Xamarin software (Visual Studio for Mac if developing directly on the Mac itself).

    Take look here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/ios/get-started/
