Me: “I should look at Swift again before next week. Let me just fire up Xcode…”
Xcode: “Ready, boss!”
Me: “Hmm. New SpriteKit game… No Swift option? Maybe once I have the skeleton in place?”
Xcode: “Look at all this glorious Objective-C! Braces! Colons!”
Me: “New file… No Swift option. Maybe I need to update Xcode. To the App Store!”
App Store: “No updates are available.”
Me: “Find Xcode. Hmm, those screens are definitely different. Get it!”
App Store: “Nope. You need to be on Yosemite, not Mavericks.”
Me: “Not gonna happen. What version of Xcode am I running?”
Xcode: “5.0.2”
Me: “Any in-app updates?”
Xcode: “Nope, I am up to date! Nothing to see here!”
Me: “Hey apple.com, what’s the latest Xcode?”
Apple: “Xcode 6.3 is the latest… until next week.”
Me: “What’s the latest Xcode I can run on Mavericks?”
Apple: “I’m not gonna tell you that! Just install Yosemite!”
Wikipedia: cough “6.2” cough
Me: “There’s an updater for that, right?”
Apple: “hahahaha. Nope. 2.6 GB, yo. See you in an hour. Tell Netflix I said good luck with the bandwidth until then.”
