Did your computer fail to open a XIB file? We explain what XIB files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your XIB files.

What is a XIB file?

The .xib file extension is most commonly associated with Interface Builder files. Interface Builder is a graphics editing software that is used to design and test the user interfaces of a variety of software products.

Software that will open, convert or fix XIB files

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
