Apple is a technology leader with others playing catch up. If you wish to know what the future portends in the app world, look to developments in iPhone apps. iOS evolves and iPhone app developers need to keep in step to match the system and the changing needs of the marketplace.
In this context iPhone development is now moving over to Swift coding and not the traditional Objective C that powered apps for a long time. Swift enables custom iPhone application development companies like ecosmob to use Xcode tools and bring apps to market faster and with more features than ever, especially targeting enterprise clients. Swift is open source, Linux compatible, modular and easier, which means developers can develop bug-free apps and push them to market faster besides keeping them updated.
Enterprise iOS apps
Talking of enterprise iOS apps, this is where the main action is going to be in the future as iOS developers like ecosmob deliver more user friendly, customer interactive and data oriented enterprise apps. Enterprise apps can be layered on CRM using agile technologies and also incorporate a host of other mobile specific features like ibeacon, GPS and augmented reality in addition to Internet of Things (IoT). Ecosmob custom iPhone application development incorporates these as well as a host of other features that helps businesses target specific customers in specific locations with specific content and derive more advantage.
Cloud based apps
When enterprise apps are on the horizon the cloud is never far off and it is a natural progression in the enterprise app world that apps should be cloud based for greater usability and functionality. This is the way apps for iOS will be developed in the future. Apart from greater functionality and ease of access for corporate users, cloud based ios apps also offer better security.
Internet of Things
IoT has been around since some time but it is now all set to take off with incorporation of features in the iOS system that will allow users of iPhones to remotely control a host of devices. Home users benefit by using iPhones with IoT apps that will help them switch off or switch on devices and set other parameters that offer convenience as well as energy savings. IoT goes hand in hand with development of customized apps for wearable devices such as the Apple watch.
Beacon and GPS
Like IoT these two technologies have been hovering around and may pick up speed in the near future with focus on leveraging GPS and beacon to deliver more user and location specific services as well as derive precise statistics. Ecosmob incorporates beacon and GPS into its enterprise level iPhone app development services to help companies push the right content and grab even more customers. These technologies form an apt complement to augmented reality that could help to integrate games into every day activity of iPhone users.
If there is a sore point for iPhone users, it is the fact that most apps on App App Store are of the paid variety. The trend is changing and iOS iPhone developers are now launching a host of free apps to bring joy to iPhone users.
Mobile commerce is growing at an exponential rate and it will continue to grow as more and more apps are developed with emphasis on mobile commerce. These will work in tandem with beacons and wallets to make buying online (even selling online) an easier than ever process.
Apple technologies are way ahead with features such as voice responsiveness and pressure sensitive 3D touch screens that debuted on the iPhone 6S and in the iPhone 7. These and other features of sensors in the iPhone environment are exploited to the fullest by expert iPhone app developers in delivering not only a highly pleasing user experience but also helping enterprises engage and retain potential customers.
