iOS Mobile Application Development Trends

BluEnt keenly observes the trends in iOS mobile app development in 2017.

New York – June 05, 2017: In 2015, the Apple App Store garnered a revenue of $40 billion for iOS mobile app developers. The staggering figure clearly indicates the growth of the App Store in the recent years; thanks to businesses favoring mobile centric development.

The year 2017 is buzzing with anticipation of arrival of new devices which better utilize iOS functionalities. The mobile app developers need to be well versed with shifts in mobile development technologies in the world of Apple and iOS.

BluEnt is anticipating the following trends to be hot cakes and their know-how USPs for the experts:

  • 2017 iOS Development Trends: Swift Coding
    The Swift Code is a multi-paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Apple for creating mobile applications in iOS. Swift has amassed huge popularity amongst app developers because of its coding methodologies and versatile frameworks. You can write reliable codes with Swift using Xcode tools IDE. With Apple making Swift open sourced in 2015, the number of adapters using the code is gradually increasing.

    BluEnt’s in-house iOS app development team in USA works on Swift to create custom mobile apps for business. Sajeel Khanna, SVP, BluEnt Technologies remarks, “There are many advantages to programming in Swift. It is easy to use and there is a navigable learning curve. As such, 2017 will be a year of tremendous advancements in Swift, thereby leading to better equipped and functional app developments on iOS, tvOS and watchOS. Swift will definitely emerge as the preferred development language, replacing C++.”

  • 2017 iOS Development Trends: GPS and Augmented Reality
    The last year saw growing adaptation of location based mobile application development by small and medium businesses. Location based services provide customers with product and service information, help in comparing prices and facilitate m-commerce. The iOS app developers predict that the app development will focus more on using Augmented Reality and GPS, as in the case of Pokemon Go in 2016. Applications such as 3D games will also be on the exploratory radar of iOS app developers.

  • 2017 iOS Development Trends: IoT integration in apps
    According to a report by AppInventiv, the number of IoT mobile app developers increased by 34% in 2016 whereas there was a marked increase in the revenue of IoT ventures. In 2017, the developers aim to mine the advantages of markets relying on internet enabled services. Mobile app development in iOS will create apps which will leverage the maximum potential of IoT products. Some of the noticeable areas in this domain will be signal recognition of sensors and secure information exchange over Wi-Fi.

    We at BluEnt feel that this effect of globalization is going to make iOS app development more effective. With location based service offerings, businesses will serve customers better and do branding the right way.

  • 2017 iOS Development Trends: Security in iOS App Development
    iOS is preferred by developers because of its keen attention to security and privacy. With right judgement calls in the form of App Transport Security (ATS) being made mandatory for all apps, the iOS mobile application development will be on the rise. Moreover, we feel the data encryption technologies are going to be more innovative and stronger in 2017.

  • 2017 iOS Development Trends: Enterprise App Development on iOS
    With iOS encompassing agile methodologies, big data and IoT, there are many opportunities that are cropping up for iOS mobile application developers for creating mobile apps for enterprises.
