Guidelines for Successful iOS App Development

There are mainly two mobile operating systems, including iOS. When it comes to building an application, you can’t just avoid making it for iOS because of its standard, global reach and features. But unlike the other popular operating system which is Android, iOS has stricter guidelines or rules. To finish successfully, developers should keep these guidelines in mind before getting started developing iOS applications.

These are the guidelines shared by one of Australia’s iOS app developers.

Plan and sketch your idea:

The first thing you need to do is plan and sketch your idea. You need to consider aspects like what type of business is, what kind of app it will be, what is the purpose of building the app and anything else that will help you plan. Once you understand the details of the application and business requirements, you can work on the idea. You cannot proceed step by step without proper planning.

Research well:

View details of competing apps in the iOS App Store. Explore the design and other information well. Try to make a note of the strengths and weaknesses of the similar apps you can find. This will help you incorporate better features and avoid the ones that could negatively impact the business. In the end, you will successfully end up with a great application for iOS.

Create wireframes:

Wireframes are the roadmaps, which help demonstrate user options and contain the blueprint of the app architecture.

Good design is important:

You have to be very careful while designing the app. The user interface is the first thing a user notices as soon as he or she opens an app. Creating an intuitive, elegant, creative, professional yet simple user interface is very important to grab the attention of many.

To design an app well, a designer should focus on the screen features like icons, animations, images, videos, etc. It is recommended to include fewer and lightweight images. Keep the design clean, uncluttered and easy to use with a touch of creativity.

Front-end development comes next:

Frontend development of an iOS application includes:

  • Database Caching
  • Synchronize the database
  • UI design and development
  • Wireframe and mockup development
  • To test
  • And then implementation

Backend Development:

For the backend development you now need to:-

Setting the backend structure
Manage and verify user accounts
Keep functions to the server
Customize to provide a better user experience
Perform data integration with various third parties using social media platforms
Work to provide push notification services
Now you need to test the application:
The approval and submission process is quite strict on iOS. You need to be sure that there are no bugs or errors and that the application works seamlessly or performs well. Thorough testing of the app is very important for this. For this you can:-

Prepare a test case

  • Use automated script modification and identification
  • Run both automated and manual tests
  • Run usability tests
  • Do security tests
  • Test device

Finally, submit the application to the iOS App Store:
Getting the application live may not be as easy as it is iOS. To submit it you must:-

  • Create an Application ID
  • Create a profile for distribution
  • Configure the build setting in the XCode
  • Create App Store Listing
  • Fill in the version information
  • And then submit the version to be reviewed
  • Finally, release the application

The process does not stop here. Once you’ve released the app on the iOS Store, you’ll need to continuously work on the app to maintain it and keep it up to date. This keeps your app consistently ahead of your competitors in the Apple Store.
