Latest Tools and Technologies for iOS Mobile App Development

iOS Mobile App Development

Apple has revealed brand new tools and technologies that it has devised for developers. These recently developed new tools and technologies are all set to help developers to design top-quality apps with ease and to create a more captivating in-app experience. Xcode cloud services have been introduced for Apple developers to enable them to build and develop top-quality applications for iOS users in a more efficient manner. 

Xcode cloud puts together under one roof the many activities and tools essential to develop, test and deploy apps through robust cloud services. Xcode cloud has made mobile app development for iOS not only easier but also given a platform to the developers to be inventive. The app developers can now deploy outstanding apps to the users with a more engaging in-app experience. 

The app store along with Xcode cloud, now also offers brand new strategies for developers to endorse their apps and engage with users, thanks to Custom Product pages and In-App events.

As per Susan Prescott who is Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations, “With the robust set of tools included in Xcode Cloud, continuing innovation in the Swift programming language, a wide range of new APIs, and even more ways to reach users — Apple’s platforms have never been stronger.”

Let us explore the recently launched tools and technologies that Apple has launched for the developers for innovative mobile app development.

  1. Xcode Cloud

Xcode cloud is one of the newly launched continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) cloud services. Built exclusively for the app developers of Apple, Xcode cloud is built into Xcode 13. As per Apple, the developers through Xcode cloud will be able to develop, try out and deliver apps of top-notch quality with a more engaging in-app experience to the users.

The new Xcode cloud is designed in a way to build apps mechanically to save the developer’s time.  The developers with the help of Xcode cloud will be able to develop and test the apps on several iOS simulators. 

  • App store

With the recent modifications made in the App Store, Apple has made it easy and convenient for its users to discover movie premiers, live-streamed experiences, live contests and so on, within its App Store.

With the brand-new feature, the users can discover and access the apps through customized recommendations, app product pages, search results, and editorial picks. This substantially broadens the reach of the developer, allowing them to engage and connect with the new user, inform the already existing users and restore connections with the former users. 

  • Swift

Apple’s robust and user-friendly programming language Swift consists of the in-built feature of concurrency. This concurrency feature implies that developers can design codes that will work in parallel, which is crucial to design apps that simultaneously respond to the user input while performing a variety of functions in the backdrop.  The developers can now design codes with minimal errors. 

With the launch of Swift, Apple has now revamped the development of User Interface (UI) by allowing the developers to design attractive and eye-catching apps with minimal codes. Furthermore, the Swift UI will improve user search experience, in-app features and so on.  

  • Games and Graphics

The recently launched tools and Application Programme Interface (APIs) in MacOS, iOS and iPadOS will benefit the developers to build Next-Gen games and to deliver a more engaging and interesting in-app user experience.  A brand-new tool known as Metal texture compression braces all the latest and silicon-optimized formats for Apple. This makes it easier for the developers to build ground-breaking games for all iOS devices. 

Furthermore, on iPhone and iPads, the Virtual Game Controller is designed in a way that allows optimising games that are developed in Game Controller support. 

  • Augmented Reality (AR)

Powered by AR Kit, Apple’s AR platform is the largest in the world. It has in operation billions of AR-powered gadgets running on iOS. ARK it has made it easy and convenient for developers to develop AR-powered experiences.

Moreover, the recent launch of Reality Kit 2 Object Capture by Apple will help the developers to build high quality and 3D photos using Apple devices. 

Therefore, mobile app development is a complex process. Mobile applications have generated large revenues for businesses that have developed them to promote their products and services. You might have seen quite a several mobile app development companies emerging in the past years. But the truth is that most of them do not know how to build apps efficiently.
