I have never worked on iOS development nor I owned a Mac before. And I'm having a bit hard time to understand how Xamarin works with iOS dev. Would someone help me understand the following few points?
From what I read, looks like I would need a Mac in order to build and debug iOS app. Does it have to be a Mac or can it be an iPhone connected to my PC? The only Apple item I have owned so far is an iPhone (and still have it) and I'm trying to use it with Xamarin if that's possible. It'd be costly to buy a Mac just to learn developing iOS apps
Do I have to pay for the Apple development subscription ($99) in order to build and debug app? I don't need to publish app yet. Just want to write some simple app, run, and see how it works.
Thanks in advance for your help.
