A few hours ago we started to receive emails from you telling us that Apple had removed Xcode 4.1 from the Mac App Store but it seems that it had only gone to visit the accounting department to lower its price from the 3.99 euros that it cost until now to a truly unbeatable figure. That’s right, Xcode 4.1 is now available completely free of charge from the Mac App Store .
The latest version of Apple’s development environment for Mac OS X and iOS takes up 2.96 GB and requires Lion so if you intend to start making your move with the iPhone or iPad you’d better upgrade at once. The alternative is to download the previous version, 4.0, from Apple’s developer page.
And to make things a bit more complicated, in the iOS developer section you can also download (only if you are registered as such through the payment option) the Xcode 4.2 beta with the iOS 5 SDK beta, the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system to be released this fall.
Thanks to Jose Manuel Rodriguez for the warning!
