Apple thrives on customer base addicted to their Premium Features and loses significant number with their rigidity. But this year at their World Wide Developer Conference, the No 2 ranked SmartPhone Manufacturer announced a clear strategy to challenge Google’s Android & Samsung Electronics.

This year, there have been no announcements of new iPhone or extended features of the iPad. It has been about the new iterations to the iOS with over 4000 new APIs and new Mac OS. And the most significant news for the iOS developers is the license to create third party iOS widgets & extensions.

LetsNurture Embracing the Leap of Apple

Having thrived as a leading iOS application development company, we have learnt to live with the constraints imposed by Apple while carrying out iPhone app development Projects. Since last one year a lot has changed. The iOS7 came (& bettered now) with a lot of media drift. But iOS8 is the answer to the developers who wants to challenge the products available at the Google store to allow personalized user experience.

Apple will now allow Third-Party widgets to be placed in the Notification area. The new APIs will allow the Apps to communicate with each other and exchange data. This means – it will allow a Health & Fitness Application to get info from Diet App about what the user has chosen to eat today & the calories burnt – through the new HealthKit API. And further user may wish to share this info with another iPhone user using CloudKit API.

As a Mobile App Development Company, there is a larger requirement of iOS Apps (even before these features) in the Corporate & Business sector. Apple is showing a clear intent to be flexible with their Third-Party constraints. And the advanced features to configure & integrate inter-App communications. It seems no surprise that will boost the requirements for iOS Apps, iOS Widgets & iOS Extensions in the coming months.

The Newest Language to be Used- Swift

From the developers’ point of view, the biggest highlight is – ‘Swift’ – the new programming language for Cocoa & Cocoa Touch. ‘Swift is modern, fast & powerful and designed for Safety’ – added by Apple. Therefore, when you hire iOS developers, you need a development team who is well-conversed with the Apple’s changes & transitioned to leverage the offerings.

We, at LetsNurture, are excited with the changes and looking forward to challenging Projects to practice our creative & innovative skills to carry out iOS Apps, Widgets & Extensions Projects. Get in touch with our team of Analysts and experience our ability to deliver the solutions for complex Projects.
