You don't have to buy an apple mac to develope for ios. You can build a hackintosh. Basically buying (cheaper) parts and installing ios on them. It used to be very hard to get ios running on non apple hardware, but it's gotten a lot easier. http://lifehacker.com/5919132/build-...apple-released
This is what I'm going to do when my next libgdx game is ready. Except I'll buy even cheaper hardware than is listed in that article. I'll only be using it to build my ios versions. Apple can keep their trash.
