How Technologies Like AI, IoT, and AR Give iOS the Advantage in the App Development Market

The next generation concepts like AI, IoT, and AR have impacted every industry like agriculture, healthcare, etc. in one way or the other. And one of the common factors among them is the mobile apps specially iOS apps. Let us see how iOS apps are affected by each of the concepts.

Today, a lot of quickly evolving technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and augmented reality, are influencing the way the world operates and conducts business. These growing next-generation concepts have impacted virtually every industry, like agriculture, healthcare, energy, education, manufacturing, aerospace, and more. Moreover, when we talk about businesses, irrespective of the sector vertical they operate in, at least one factor is found to be common among them: mobile apps, especially iOS apps.

Interestingly, the technologies that we spoke of earlier also influence the iOS platform. Case in point: Considering that IoT based generate increased revenues, thanks to the proliferation of smart devices, iOS app developers are now increasingly giving more preference to IoT enabled apps. Though that's not all – Even Apple now allows iOS developers to make use of the immense potential of artificial intelligence within iOS apps. These technologies are having a growing impact on iOS app development. iOS developers are now increasingly embracing the Swift 4 programming language because it enables them to create scalable and more vigorous apps.

Listed are some of the latest trends that dominate the iOS app development, along with the role of IoT, AI, Homekit, Swift 4, and more in the context of this discussion:

  1. First things first, IoT has established itself as a revolutionary technology for businesses in general, and a custom iPhone app development company is no exception either. IoT enabled apps have become a rage among developers since such apps allow the user to do several things with their phone, such as control the room's temperature, power smart devices on or off even when not at home, and also keep an eye on their house while they are away managing other essential initiatives. Moreover, with iPhone users typically from the middle and higher income groups; there is a massive opportunity for the development of custom iOS apps for this segment.
     
  2. The Swift 4 programming language has gained immense popularity since it offers benefits such as user-friendly design, scalability, and robust security. Though when it comes to iOS app development, it renders the development process much more simple and straightforward. It also makes sure that iOS apps do not consume as much machine memory as other apps. – All these factors are among the most desired features in an app.
     
  3. With the snowballing popularity of the cloud, users today also expect it to be available at their disposal from the convenience of even their mobile phones. What this means for iOS app developers is that they can deliver several advantages such as minimizing the app size and offer enhanced memory capacity on the device. However, developers must remember that cloud integration is not child's play and requires ample research before it gets leveraged for different purposes.

When it comes to the app development market, iOS faces stiff competition from Android. Nonetheless, any custom iPhone app development company still gets to offer myriad benefits spanning domains such as security, design, and features.
