You cannot run iOS unless you are on Mac OSX.


how can get the ipa version from windows??

Answer

You can't build the .ipa package in your Windows machine because you'll need XCode for that.

You can use this: https://web.archive.org/web/20150303180446/http://community.phonegap.com/nitobi/topics/detailed_guide_for_setting_up_building_ios_apps_without_a_mac

but still you need a machine with ios installed, this is just about certificate generation. Also the final version of your app, must be uploaded with XCode.

So a possible solution is to install a macOS virtual machine on windows base pc.

Also you can get virtual mac machine. Have a look at these:
