What’s New in iOS App Development

Posted on July 31, 2018 at 04:47 AM

2017 has been a wonderful year for iOS. Last year Apple launched three new iPhone devices, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 (Plus) and iPhone X in the market. Moreover, this global giant provided major updates on iOS 11. Apple has also improved their technical support for customers and has been very active throughout 2017. With new trends and technology, booming and influencing the whole iOS community, developers too are tuning them for their progressing and upcoming iOS app development projects.List of trends we can expect in iOS application development in 2018.Swift4: Swift programming language is seen continuously improving its place. We all know Swift one of the best and our very own Apple’s general purpose programming language that is pre-compiled for tvOS, iOS, macOS & Linux. While introducing Swift 4, Apple says, that Swift is one of the most powerful programming languages which is also very easy to learn.

Swift 4 has the strengths of Swift 3, it’s just the better version of Swift 3 and has great potential for scalable & creating highly robust applications. This up gradation will help the iOS developers to create the apps faster without compromising on the security features while developing the apps. In fact, developing the application by using Swift 4 will consume less memory of your devices.

Augmented Reality Apps with ToolKit: Apple introduces Augmented Reality Kit for developers, which is a framework to create AR experiences for iPad and iPhone. The Augmented Reality framework by Apple allows apps to act in such a way as to have an effect on each other with the real world in a number of ways. While the Toolkit will be compatible with iOS 11 and above editions, there is the plethora of AR SDKs for developers out there that can augment user experience by taking the apps beyond the screen.

Moreover, with the launch of iOS 11, the new app store update has got a winning response. The app categorization has made it extremely easy for users to discover an app of their choice. And the Get Started with AR section will let the users easily filter out the AR apps amongst the millions of apps in the store.

Core Machine Learning: Apple brought a machine learning framework, called the Core ML. Apple already uses this machine learning framework for various products like Camera, Siri & QuickType. iPhone developers can make use of this Core ML in any of the iOS applications to make it more feature rich. For this, they just have to add a few lines of code within the apps along with the framework code.
