you can only do that on a mac OS
so once you get a mac you can install a program called Xcode
thats it

Guru JiCommented:
phoneGap is the framework which can be used on windows to achieve IOS apps on windows but you can also get some interface designer to go with phoneGap to create IOS on windows.

Here is the list of some great Interface Designer which works on Windows to create IOS apps

Hi erikTsomik,

It sounds like you are right at the beginning and need some general concept ideas.

Visual Studio = xCode    (except all versions of xcode are FREE unlike Micro$oft's VS)

.NET = UIKit or the iPhone SDK

C#/VB/C+ = Objective C (if you are a C#'er you will have no problems)

Just like Visual Studio only works on Windows xcode only works on OSX.  But as pointed out above there are alternatives to using these IDE's. And this is where things start to diverge and you have lots of options.

I believe (I have only ever used Xcode) that when it comes to some parts of submitting your app you will need Xcode but I am sure there are ways around it.

If you have a mac or can get one the best option would be for you to download xcode and do some tutorials to see what things look like.  Ray Wenderlich's tutorials are really good and would be a good start.

It is free to register as an apple developer and use xcode where you have a simulator to see how your code is working.  But as soon as you want to put your app on your phone or other peoples phones for testing or you have apps on the app store you need to upgrade your developer account to be a paying 99$ per year member.
