Introducing Buildkite’s Managed macOS CI

Early access program now open

Improving CI for macOS and iOS app development has been a passion project for Buildkite for several years, and we’re delighted to see it realized.

We are excited to announce this exclusive program for our macOS agents managed service, providing the first scalable CI platform for Mac and iOS development.

Automate and manage your infrastructure using Buildkite’s flexible pipeline workflows, deep pull request integration, and macOS agents running securely within Buildkite-hosted infrastructure.

Is the macOS early access program for you?

  • Does the thought of racking & stacking 10 more Mac minis wake you up at night?
  • Do you only trust a system after you SSH in to see how it’s configured?
  • Would you like to have input into how we evolve our macOS capabilities?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we’d love to hear from you!

Request early access

Tell us a bit about yourself, and we’ll reach out to let you know if you’ve qualified for the program, and keep you up to date with developments.

Premium macOS agents, used by you, managed by us

With Buildkite’s hosted macOS agents, you get the same level of Enterprise support you’re used to with Buildkite pipelines. We’ll be there to ensure they run exactly as expected. If you need to access the machine to debug a gnarly build issue, SSH and Screen Sharing access are available.

Optimized for speed with dedicated hardware

Agents run 24/7 on dedicated Mac minis. We’ve fine tuned them so they run your tests and builds as fast as possible (up to 30% faster than other CI/CD providers). We also limit the number of agents per machine to avoid any noisy neighboring processes slowing you down.

New versions of Xcode and macOS in days, not weeks

Don’t wait around for your existing CI/CD provider to ship new images, we’ll have them ready for you to test within two business days after new versions are released.

No long term commitments, billed monthly

There are no lock-in contracts with our agents, so there’s no risk for you in trying them out to compare their performance against your current setup. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
