.net maui cross platform

I'm looking to make an app in .net maui with VS 2022. The company needs it to be android and IOS. I got the Android simulator to work in VS 2022, is there a way to get the IOS to simulate on a PC or will I need a mac of some form for that? Without a mac would I even have a way to deploy the IOS version to our internal employees?

dotnet-maui

Hello,​

is there a way to get the IOS to simulate on a PC or will I need a mac of some form for that?

You need a mac. Because hot restart(enables you to quickly test changes to your app during development without a Mac) have a known issue, here isn't yet a direct fix.

Without a mac would I even have a way to deploy the IOS version to our internal employees?

If you create an app for internal use only without intending to use the App Store.

You need a mac to create a Distribution Certificate and App ID

You need an apple Enterprise Developer Account as well. This account allows you to self-sign apps, and distribute application through your website. These apps will download onto your internal employees devices and run. And no need for Apple to validate them, or approve them.

Here is article about Install custom enterprise apps on iOS
