WRT cloud building: yes, it'd be more ideal to have a Mac especially if you want any platform specific UX or features but you can definitely get around it using just a Linux machine, an iOS device and some CI system.

The Flutter project itself does it at https://github.com/flutter/flutter/blob/master/examples/flut.... You can then self-add to your TestFlight and check that way. Though you can't debug.

You can also get around it using just a Linux and an Android device. You can press 'o' after you flutter run to change the platform on the fly to get iOS scroll physics, page transitions etc etc. But again, testing on the devices your users will be using is more ideal.
