A .NET IDE hand-tailored for the Mac

Visual Studio 2022 for Mac fully embraces the macOS experience with native controls throughout the IDE, a new dark mode, and native macOS accessibility tooling.

Fast & fluid

Visual Studio 2022 for Mac brings a new, fully native macOS UI built on .NET 7, plus native support for the Apple M1 chip. It all adds up to faster, more fluid daily coding time for you.

Modern development with .NET 7

Visual Studio 2022 for Mac includes nearly everything you’ll need for .NET 7 development, from responsive C# web UIs in Blazor to event-driven solutions using Azure Functions.

Advanced IntelliSense

With the power of Roslyn, Visual Studio for Mac brings IntelliSense to your fingertips. IntelliSense describes APIs as you type and uses auto-completion to increase the speed and accuracy of how you write code.

Quick Info tool tips let you inspect API definitions. Squiggly lines in the editor highlight issues in real time as you type.

Intelligent refactoring

As your project grows, chances are, you’ll find yourself restructuring and refactoring code that you or someone else wrote earlier. That’s a whole lot easier when Visual Studio for Mac takes care of the heavy lifting for you.

Integrated version control

Visual Studio 2022 has built-in support for Git version control to clone, create, and open your own repositories. The Git tool window has everything you need for committing and pushing changes to code.

Powerful debugging

Integrated debugging is a core part of every Visual Studio product. You can step through your code and look at the values stored in variables, set watches on variables to see when values change, examine the execution path of your code, and just about anything else you need to check out under the hood.
