Our company is a top rated iOS app developer with a wealth of experience. We are always ready to share our knowledge and help you achieve your goals.

iOS is Apple's mobile operating system that runs on hardware for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Apple provides all resources and tools to develop for iOS all kinds of software applications. Our developers are high professionals and can program in a native language, such as Swift or Objective-C, or use JavaScript (React Native) or C # (Xamarin) to build native and cross-platform apps.

Developer Requirements

To develop for iOS, you need a Mac computer that runs the latest version of Xcode. It is the Apple’s Integrated Development Environment for Mac and iOS programs. Xcode is the graphical interface that you use to write applications for iOS. Xcode includes the iOS SDK, compilers, , tools, and frameworks you need to develop, design, write code and debug iOS software products. For the development of native mobile apps on iOS, Apple recommends using the advanced Swift programming language.

It's worth noting that Xcode runs only on Mac OS X and is the only way to support application development for iOS.

iOS Software Development Kit

Explore the tools, technologies, features, and languages ​​included in the iOS SDK to develop for iOS. Some of the highlights of the SDK are the Cocoa Touch framework, which includes UIKit, PushKit, GameKit, MapKit, and Foundation Kit . These and other frameworks allow you to manipulate your iPhone or iPad camera, explore music with MusicKit, add voice interactions with SiriKit, expand and view and listen with AirPlay 2, and even include iMessage Business Chat to your product. IOS 11 adds machine learning capabilities to the Core ML and Augmented Reality (AR) experiences through ARKit.

Preparing the Development Environment

  • Download Xcode;
  • Start and explore the Xcode;
  • Create a new project.

Develop and run your software with the integrated iOS simulator included with Xcode.

The iOS Simulator is a good way to see the look of the future program and you can interact with it exactly as you would in an actual device. You can simulate your app on various hardware types and versions of iOS.

Beta Test

After you create and test your application (using the XCTest framework or iOS unit tests), you can use TestFlight to invite users to your program and collect feedback before deploying it in the AppStore. Now it is a good time to test push notifications, use Core Data to store data, and make network calls to third-party APIs. To get started, just upload a beta version of your app and add the tester's name and email using iTunes Connect. Testers will install the TestFlight so they can interact with your product and provide valuable feedback.

Integration

After you design, develop and test your iOS app, you can deploy it in the App Store. At this point, you have to join the Apple Developer Program. As a member, you can access beta software, advanced application features, extensive beta testing tools, and application analytics.
