With the release of the iPhone in 2007, Apple revolutionized the mobile market. And even today, Apple is one of the big players in the mobile sector. The number of active Apple devices such as iPads, iPhones, or Macs is over 1.3 billion worldwide.
It is noteworthy that despite the relatively low market share of around 14%, Apple generates more than half of its sales in the mobile market through the App Store. Accordingly, Apple users' willingness to buy apps and subscriptions is much greater than that of iPhone users. So if you, as a company, rely on user-paid apps in your business strategy, iOS app development and publication in Apple's app store is the first choice.
In the development phase of an iPhone application, you have to take into account the specific features of Apple. The programming language that the iOS operating system understands is Objective-C. It is possible to create a basic application without knowing it, but more complex actions cannot be performed without coding.
Apple also provides developers with an SDK (Software Development Kit). Presented and organized in the form of software libraries, this SDK includes ready-made code files intended to use the native functions of iPhones, such as GPS or the camera.
Ahead: Apple's iOS operating system not only serves as an operating system for the iPhone but also operates the iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. This not only simplifies the development for different end devices but also offers your users special added value. iOS, as a cross-device operating system, enables a smooth change between different end devices. An example: While working, your native iOS app users can use the Apple Watch both as an extended display. Once at home, apps used throughout the day can be used seamlessly and synchronized on the tablet. Highlights such as special photos can be easily displayed on the Apple TV and shared with the family.
All of these possibilities can be software-based. After all, all that is required is adapted user interfaces for the various end devices to optimize multiple devices.
Another advantage of native iOS app development is future compatibility. This ensures that you do not have to develop your app from scratch as soon as Apple changes the hardware. Apple's switch from the home button to a notch does not affect your app's functionality because frameworks for connecting new functions are announced and provided by Apple at an early stage.
Native iOS apps are developed using the Swift, Objective C, or C ++ programming languages. Since Apple itself also uses these programming languages, you can achieve the same performance as Apple's system apps in app development. After all, these compilers and frameworks are specifically tailored to Apple devices.
Besides, many (open source) frameworks are provided by the developer community. The functions are shown in it, such as data management, analysis of user behavior, background downloads, connection to Microsoft Active Directory, or Bluetooth Smart Services, which can, in many cases, be used free of charge in your project without having to write new code.
In addition, we rely on continuous integration, Git, code reviews, and unit tests for constant monitoring of development progress and quality assurance.
Basically, native iOS app development offers a multitude of options for the accessibility of your app. Taking accessibility into account during conception and design means that there is a minimal additional effort in development. In this way, depending on the use case, you can enable your app to be controlled with the screen completely switched off and only by voice. This also includes the offline use of apps. Especially in applications with unsteady or weak network connectivity, you should rely on so-called "offline first" strategies in app development.
Hyperlink InfoSystem can provide you with great native and hybrid mobile applications that can function without internet connectivity.
Integrating a feedback mechanism enables us to know how the users feel about the app. This helps us understand the aspects to improve on and, most importantly, makes the application a success.
With this, a single application can be successfully linked with several others in the cloud if needed. This will only make your app more useful since it will have access to greater data and resources.
We choose the best and safest, and secure payment platforms to integrate into our mobile applications.
The amount of data that is generated on social media is massive. If your business wants to take advantage of this opportunity, we are best suited to provide it for you.
Our applications are well optimized to perform excellently on various iPhone devices by different manufacturers.
With our years of experience, we've come to realize that users are opposed to filling long forms. We create simple ways for registration and login.
Creating stunning and intuitive user interfaces on mobile apps is a no brainer. This is one of the major determinants of the success of an application. All the successful applications have easy-to-use user interfaces.
