Opening XIB files

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. The files with the .xib file extension contain development time format files. These files contain the interface files created with the Interface Builder software.

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.
