Building apps for iOS - free of charge

Hello, I’m wondering if there is a free way how I can build apps for iOS and deploy it to my own iPhone (and that of a friend). If I follow the instructions given in the Mendix documentation, Apple wants to charge me 99 € per year just for an “enrollment” into the Apple developer program. Is there a different way to build iOS apps, free of charge? Thanks you!

Hi Markus,

I don’t believe there isn’t a free way for iOS. This is one of the many annoying restrictions with developing apps for iOS.

If you develop an app for Android you can develop and test those apps for free. You only need to pay for a developer license when you want to publish to the playstore.
