1- Download XCode

If you do not have a real Mac OS computer, you can install an virtual Mac OS operating system running on VMWare (Or VirtualBox), this is a feasible way to get Mac OS operating system, and can install XCode. You can see the instructions at:
Please notice that the XCode version depends on the version of the Mac operating system, so make sure that your Mac operating system is the latest version, if not, during the installing process you will receive an error notification shown below:
It is completely free to upgrade the version of the Mac operating system. To have a better experience, I highly recommend you to upgrade it.
In case you do not want to upgrade the operating system but you still desire to install XCode, please download the appropriate version, knowing that it may not be the latest version.

After downloading successfully, you will get an XIP file (A MacOS compressed format), or a DMG file (A format to be installed in MacOS).
XIP is a compressed format of MacOS. Like ZIP, it consists of a digital signature which protects the integrity and the original information of the file.

In XCode 8.x or later version, after downloading it, you will receive an XIP file. Next, move it to another folder of yours (Except for the Downloads folder).
Then double click on it to open. MacOS Archive Utility will check the digital signature and extract this file.
After that, double click on Xcode to install it.
Wait until the installation is complete, then it is ready to kickstart.

3- Installing XCode (DMG)

In XCode 7.x or older version, the installer is a DMG file, so you double click on the file to install it.
