iPhone App Development Company
1 month ago in Plain Text
iOS app development refers to the creation of applications specifically designed for devices running the iOS operating system, such as iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch. Skilled developers use programming languages like Swift or Objective-C to design, code, test, and deploy apps, ensuring compatibility with Apple's ecosystem. The process involves attention to user experience, performance optimization, and adherence to Apple's guidelines.
iOS App Development Services from Agicent
The first iOS App created by us was 14 years ago, back in 2010. It was a Medical EMR App for a client named GloStreem, Inc in Michigan and since then we never looked back. We’ve seen the iOS platform grown from a nascent restricted platform to now an all-revolutionary platform of choice by billions. Being an iphone App Development Company, we make sure that our iOS Developers (from junior to senior level) have enough real project experience (from iOS App Development to launch) before we deploy them on your project.

Best Practices followed by Agicent iOS App Development Company
Preparation, Architecture, Tech Stack identification
Before starting to code, we need to make an architecture of the project. Project becomes strong via its solid architecture only. Architecture primarily includes the data modelling and flow modelling, however identification of third-party libraries to be integrated, usage of stock features or custom code, identification of side technologies (like for payment processing, for GPS location, for Map technology, for OCR and so on) is worthy to be discussed during the architecture phase.
Create and Follow Documentation, Make Project Wiki
Description of the desired project outcome will help you to keep on track the work. Documentation of the code will be an incredible source to know about HOW and most importantly WHY things had been done in a particular way. Business logic, especially in bigger projects, is sometimes hard to comprehend for a newly introduced iOS Developer and an easily available documentation is the best solution to preempt such situation. In fact, creating a project wiki is your best bet that will help any future developers to comprehend and understand and work on the project most efficiently. Successful projects need proper controlling over development and testing, which is easy with documentation.
Follow Apple App Store Guidelines and Rules
When you create an iOS App, you are basically creating something that has to be compliant to the rules and regulation of the Apple Ecosystem. It is imperative to go through the Apple’s set of guidelines time to time (as they update that time to time) for better hands-on understanding so developers can better educate their clients and managers on feasibility and do’s and don’ts. Apple Guidelines cover multiple intricacies like safety, performance, business, design and legal issues.
Common mistakes during iOS App Development – we’ve to Avoid these!
Following are some of the common mistakes being done by many iOS Developers that end up being problematic for future scaling or fixing.
Need to handle asynchronous code properly.
UI related code should run on main thread and not on any priority thread. This is important to make sure the App’s user experience and performance remains seamless.
Concurrency and Multithreading should be implemented properly. When we say properly it means applying it shouldn’t break any other process or functionality or applying it just for the sake of it.
Mutable objects should be properly handled.
XIBs should be used instead of storyboards.
Object and pointer should be properly differentiated
Logging should be properly managed.
Leave time and tools for Debugging.
Future of iOS Development
More Powerful Camera, hence more powerful Photo/ Video Apps
The new iOS Devices are bound to have much better camera and video quality and that means there will be great opportunity to create much better photo and video apps. Also, a high-end powerful camera may also serve in creating Apps for different usage than just photo/ video sharing like in healthcare, industry, IoT and also in policing and defense.
How about having a camera that scan inside of your mouth for dentist or ENT experts, or a Camera that is so powerful that you can measure changes in your skin and journal that, or a Camera that does an accurate OCR as you click pictures and attached a narrated story right away, the possibilities of Camera Apps with an high end camera are endless.
Creator Friendly Environment hence creator friendly Apps
The world belongs to content creators these days, and the iOS Devices currently are widely used for content creation. However, there are multiple challenges like lesser storage space to store high fidelity videos for long time (though you buy it via cloud), not enough screen sizes for video editing, less apparatus for better sound recording (you need an external mic for better recording). Imagine an iOS App that absolutely creator friendly, that let two people talk in a talk show without having an external mic, or Apps that can let you edit your videos as good as you can do on a big studio with a professional editor, and damn making a whole 2 hours movie using nothing but just iPhones – sounds over enthusiastic or crazy, well we all see this being as real animals very soon.
IoT (Internet of Things), Home Automation
Home automation is here and so as various devices using internet to communicate with each other and perform functions (IoT). The future iOS Apps will leverage amazingly high-speed processors and 5G and beyond internet speed to facilitate much more robust Home Automation and IoT Apps for everyday usage. So far, IOT Apps are largely being used by industry but the near future will have IOT Apps being used in every household.
The future iOS Apps in IOT and Home Automation may do switching on the garage lights when your doorbell rings, or streaming different music in different rooms of your home, or controlling your HVAC system as per the outside temperature and your mood, or letting you read a book on the wall in front of your eyes instead of just small iOS screen. Again, our ideas may know a boundary but the future holds Apps that will ease out our lives in many ways that we can think of as crazy right now.
