I use Ubuntu to develop Swift apps. How can I test it? Can i deploy it to my iphone to test without a Mac?
Thanks

No, you need Xcode to deploy to an iOS device.

You can’t build iOS apps on Linux. You need stuff like UIKit and the rest of the Cocoa frameworks, plus the Objective-C runtime, none of which are present in the open-source version of Swift.
