iOS app development - everything you need to know

We build iOS apps using a range of technology stacks. Which one we use will depend on your project specifications.

Objective-C is a long-standing, highly trusted programming language that uses dynamic typing and message passing. It also requires dividing classes into two code blocks: interface and implementation.

Swift is a relatively new programming language, which Apple released to the public in 2014. In 2015, Swift became open-source. It abandons the Objective-C heritage and has all the modern programming features: generics, optionals, type inference, and higher-order functions.

There are other technology stacks, such as React Native or Flutter, which suit cross-platform development and can offer a quicker time to market.

What is an iPhone app?

An iPhone app is a software application designed to run on Apple’s iOS-powered iPhone devices.

iOS stands for iPhone Operating System. iPhone applications are available via Apple’s App Store. Apps developed for iOS are also available on Apple’s other devices, such as iPad and iPod touch.

iPhone app developers can programme their own apps for download using sample code projects from Apple’s SDK.

You can put a price on your app if you wish – the revenue is split between the developer (70%) and Apple (30%). You can also make your app free to download. Apple also supports in-app purchases, which offer an alternative revenue stream for app developers.

Benefits of native iOS app development

iOS apps bring in much more revenue than Android apps despite having a smaller market share. In 2019 (Q2), Apple users spent approximately $25bn on apps and in-app purchases.

As a result, successful iOS mobile app development can open up new revenue streams for your business and deliver a high ROI on the cost of building your app.

Apple releases new iOS-powered products each year to a stable, growing, and tech-savvy audience, enabling iPhone app developers to tap into this high-potential market.

Native apps also offer optimum performance because they are designed for specific operating systems, which increases processing speed and delivers better data security.

iOS apps also benefit from the iPhone or iPad interface, which is highly intuitive and interactive, delivering excellent usability and user experience.

237SOFT’s iOS app development process

237SOFT offers iOS app development services from ideation to execution.

Our process is agile and transparent, with efficient project management and communication between all stakeholders.

The process begins with iOS strategy and concept, when you define your idea and why you want to build an app in the first place. This stage will help you identify your target market and see what its needs are, and develop a strategy & concept to deliver unique value.

The next step is to choose the iOS application development technology to build your app. There are different technology stacks you can use, from the native Swift and Objective-C to multiplatform solutions like React Native or Flutter. Choosing the right technology is important and depends on the needs and functionalities of your app.

Next, the app development team can begin to build the iOS UX design features – that is, how your end user will experience and interact with your app, checking this against the project specifications.

Then iOS development and testing begins, when you build on the core architecture of your app towards a final product. Continuous testing is important to identify bugs and issues before your app hits the market.

When your app is released, you’ll begin to market it, and provide ongoing maintenance. As a full-service iOS app development company, 237SOFT also provides this post-launch support to ensure your app stays successful beyond its initial release.

How to choose a reliable partner for iOS app development?

Choosing the right iOS app developers to work on your project can mean the difference between success and failure. You need someone with design, development, quality assurance and maintenance expertise, who can choose the best technology and put a great team in place to build the app.

You could outsource all of these different aspects to different partners who specialise in a particular area, but working with a full-service iOS mobile development partner will deliver a more consolidated, reliable process.

A full-service mobile development team can offer expertise in all areas and seamless, transparent project management.

To choose the most reliable partner, look into the portfolio and reviews of your potential iOS app development company to see the quality of their work, and feedback from their previous clients. Check what their experience is and how they manage the development process.
