Old Mac

I have latest version of Visual studio and Xamarin on Windows but my iMac is a Mid 2011.
How can I pair it? VS for Mac seam want Xcode 11.6 and I can't install it.
Only solution is to buy a new Mac or can be work with an old version of VS for Mac and old Xcode?
Best regards

    Apple requeires that all "Apps for iPhone or iPad must be built with the iOS 13 SDK or later"

    So that means that you need a Xcode version that supports the SDK 13.x, and thats XCode 11.x

    To use Xcode 11.x you need MacOS Catalina (10.15.2)

    So for an older Mac from 2011 you are pretty much out of luck.
