Top Platform, Top Trends: Follow And Become A Top Developer

“Trends” – The word that itself says it ends.

It will end sooner or later if you want to make the most of it, know them in advance and bid them farewell right on time. If you don’t follow any of the above mentioned, you will be thrown out of the killing competition. Do you want that? I am sure not. So, here I am to help you stay, sustain, survive, and shine out successfully from this competition. I have a list of top trends for iPhone app development. If you are a freelance iOS developer, or an iPhone app development company, or a client intending to develop an iPhone app, or a final year student looking to enroll yourself in a training program, this is what you must take a look at. Also, follow them before you start your project.

1) Swift 5.0

The updates are one of the most important trends one should focus on. When it comes to Swift, it is in the list of top 10 programming languages across the globe. Even though the language is quite fresh, it is accepted and used massively by the developers. The fifth version is about to release in 2019 and it will become one of the essential trends of the year.

It is expected that the latest version will bring ABI (Application binary interface) stability which will enable the iPhone developers to integrate the Swift libraries with the runtime. At present, there are more than 300000 apps developed with swift and the numbers keep on rising. Hence, Swift 5.0 is something to lay your eyes on.

2) WatchOS 5

I don’t know whether you know this or not but Apple smartwatch was sold 3.5 Million in the second quarter of 2018. Well, the users are quite in love with the watch. This is a clear indication for the iPhone app development companies to be prepared for this upcoming trend. Wearables were already in trend and with the WatchOS 5, it is going to be highly popular. It is expected from the WatchOS 5 to access the Siri watch face, audio controls, and many more things. Some of the features include audio apps can work in the background and can also download the episodes to your Apple Watch, playlists, and also transfer audio files from your Apple watch.

3) Apple Pay

Digital wallet has become mandatory these days. There are plenty of apps in the Apple app store that asks for a premium version or even any payment gateway integration for in-app purchase. This is why Apple pay is supposed to be one of the hottest trends. It will support multiple payment modes to pay for transactions like food delivery, online shopping, bank transactions, and ticket booking.

4) App Security

The basic and most important thing the user looks in the app is security. Apple is very popular for making highly secure apps. Apple focuses highly on developing apps which are not possible to hack and hence extra focus is to be laid on the app security which can be the trend of the year. So, iPhone app developers have to work extra hard to keep the app security intact. Especially when Apple pay will be integrated, the security will be of even high significance.

5) AR

I know you must be hearing about AR since iOS 11 launch and now we are on the verge of iOS 13 and still, AR is listed in the top trends. With the Apple ARKit, the level of iPhone apps is upsurged and the quality has improved tremendously.
