Hello guys ,
I have recently installed Mac os high sierra on my dell machine and then installed xcode to create iphone apps . I heard that using hackintosh and xcode you can only use the emulator to see , debug and test you APP while development and you can't connect a physical iphone using the USB and run the code on it . Is this right that I can only use the software emulator not a real physical device to run and debug the code or you have experienced running your xcode APP on real devices ?

It really make the development process easier and I want to know before buying an iphone to test on xD

Sure you can, I have been developing for iOS on a hackintosh for 2 years, and I can assure you can develop, debug on device, and publish to the App Store from it.

All you have to do is be certain that your SMBios, serial numbers and board UUIDs are all set correctly because changing them could break some certificate signing, nothing that cant be fixed tho.
