Apple is constantly maintaining their success and good reputation through the years, and even more this 2022. This success is evident with their total revenue increase of $91.5 million in 2021 compared to 2020. And of course, improvements in iOS application development play a huge role in Apple’s continued rise, especially with the increasing number of software and services in the market for Apple devices that are all powered by user-centred application development.
To help you keep up with the latest advancements in Apple app development, here are the top three 2022 must-know updates.
Swift is one of the main programming languages used in building Apple products, and its next version, Swift 5.6, was released in the first quarter of 2022 following Swift version 5.5.2, which was first officially released in December 2021. Currently, there are 334 repository proposals, 13 of which are implemented and will be included in the release.
Apple is strict with its development requirements. However, getting your apps approved in the Apple App Store isn’t that hard with the help of Apple SDK toolkits that include frameworks like ARKit and ShazamKit integrations. These frameworks also come with resources like documentation and Human Interface Guidelines. There are also online forums where developers can interact to create a community-based improvement hub for these frameworks.
One of the reasons behind Apple’s superiority in the market is its design rules. The company’s design principles may vary every time a new device is created but remains consistent in its branding. This harmonious blend of user-centred functional design and minimalist aesthetic is what helps the Apple brand command premium price pointsCreating an easily recognisable, high-impact design may cost from $4,000 to $20,000 – or even more, depending on the amount of research and development it takes. But despite that, there’s one way to make the design cost-effective from development up to the app launch: by using resources, templates, and guides provided by Apple. Any iOS developer may put assets to use with design software like Adobe Sketch, XD, and Photoshop templates included in Apple design guides. Additionally, design is the first thing that will give an impression to people– why not make the most out of its icon, title, and previews?
Development language versions, frameworks, and design resources are just a few of the updates that everyone looked forward to this 2022. We’re already in the month of the year, and the tech giant sure has a lot in store for app developers and users for years to come.
