 ## Requirements and Support
 
-
-- __Intel-based Computer with Mac® OS X® Lion or greater (10.7.4+)__
-    The Apple® tools required for building iOS applications run only on the OS X operating
system. The version of the development environment required, Xcode® 4.5, runs only on Mac
OS X version 10.7 (Lion) or greater.
-- __Xcode 4.5 and iOS 6 SDK__
-         To submit apps to the Apple App Store℠, you must use the latest versions of the
Apple tools. Currently the latest versions are Xcode 4.5.2 and the iOS 6 SDK (Software Development
Kit). The download of Xcode 4.5.2 includes the iOS 6 SDK.

+operating system on Intel-based Macs. Xcode® 4.5 (the minimum required
+version) runs only on OS X version 10.7 (Lion) or greater, and
+includes the iOS 6 SDK (Software Development Kit).  To submit apps to

 You can test many of the Cordova features using the iOS simulator
 installed with the iOS SDK and Xcode, but you need an actual device to
-fully test all of the device features your applications use before
-submitting to the App Store.  The device must have at least iOS 5.x
-installed, the minimum iOS version supported as of Cordova 2.3.
-Devices that support at least iOS 5 include all iPad® models, iPhone®
-3GS and above, and iPod® Touch 3rd Generation or later. To install
-apps onto a device, you must also be a member of Apple's [iOS
-Developer Program](https://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/).  The
-program costs $99 per year. This Getting Started guide shows how to
-deploy the application to the iOS simulator, in which case developer
-program registration is not required.

 ## Install the SDK
 
-    - Download from the [App Store](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xcode/id497799835?mt=12)
(https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xcode/id497799835?mt=12).
-    - Download from [Apple Developer Downloads](https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action)
(https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action).  __NOTE:__  This link requires Apple
Developer registration.
+There are two ways to download Xcode:
+
+* from the [App Store](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xcode/id497799835?mt=12),
+  available by searching for "Xcode" in the __App Store__ application.
 
-- __Xcode Command Line Tools__
+* from [Apple Developer Downloads](https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action),
+  which requires registration as an Apple Developer.
 
-    Cordova uses the command line to create a new application project.  To access the Xcode
tools from the command line an additional download is required.  The tools are downloaded
from within Xcode.
-    1. Open Xcode
-    2. Select the following via the Xcode Menus:  __Xcode Preferences &rarr; Downloads
&rarr;Command Line Tools__.  This downloads and installs copies of the core command-line
tools and system headers into your computer's system folders.
+Once Xcode is installed, several command-line tools need to be enabled
+for Cordova to run. From the __Xcode__ menu, select __Preferences__,
+then the __Downloads__ tab. Press the __Install__ button next to the
+__Command Line Tools__ listing.
