We have flagged the following images as deprecated and will be removing them on 12 January 2022
- Xcode 11.0.0
- Xcode 11.1.0
- Xcode 11.2.1
- Xcode 11.3.1
Emails will be sent to users who have affected projects in due course.
What does this mean for me?
Once an image is removed, the CircleCI jobs that use that image will fail with an error. You will need to update your CircleCI config to use a newer Xcode version to use moving forward. See the CircleCI Testing on iOS document for the full list of Xcode versions that are available for you to use.
Our recommendation is to switch your jobs to the highest version of Xcode you can to minimise any impact of future deprecations.
Why are these images being deprecated?
These Xcode images are the oldest in the Xcode 11 series that we support, and as new Xcode images are being released we need to balance the available capacity for our customers. This has been necessitated by the larger than normal number of releases in the Xcode 11 cycle (8 images). By removing these images, we will ensure we are able to continue releasing new Xcode 13 images quickly and easily, including beta images.
