iOS 15 has created a lot of excitement in the market. It has shown the progress of Apple and how it has achieved technical advancement. There have been significant improvements in integrated Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence which have given new directions to the app development industry.
Many of the updates that iOS 15 provides have been in demand in the market for a long time. Following are the major updates:
As most users spend a lot of time in front of a screen, the idea of having a dark mode in the user interface is gaining a lot of popularity because it is pleasant to the eyes, and also has an aesthetic appeal.
iOS 15 has improved iOS’s Augmented Reality capabilities in AR Kit 3. The platform claims improved awareness of individuals and the integration of movement. Apart from the above, iOS’s Augmented Reality includes innovative features such as Reality Composer and Reality Kit, which allow you to design and build customized AR experiences.
Apple has kept it a priority to deliver an improved Siri with every update. One of the new features has been Siri Kit which enables round-the-clock access to Siri, even if an application is not running at that moment. The Kit builds an extension of Siri to any application that you are using, and Siri handles the user interactions on your behalf.
This has been a popular update among app developers because of Core ML 3. It provides enhanced support for advanced machine learning models and gives better search and object recognition by improving train models on the device. The same principle has led to improvement in face and landmark detection, image and speech recognition, tracking, and analysis of natural language text.
As on-device updates have now become a possibility in Core ML 3, a lot of developers will be able to deliver customized features to their apps. Another feature that adds a new feather to the cap is Create ML, which enables the developers to use the full potential of machine learning and create machine-learning models that do not need any code at all. This has resulted in better efficiency, faster development and improved creativity.
Developers can use the potential of Siri Kit and Apple’s AI technology to their benefit and save a lot of time by delegating multiple tasks to Siri such as accessing visual codes to searches and VoIP to payments.
Swift 5 is a simple and powerful programming language for iOS and is an extremely simple language to learn. Swift 5’s unique API limits the number of language modifications and enhances its simplicity. It provides better memory access during runtime and also supports novel data types thus proving itself as a very stable language.
Apple has always been steadfast when it comes to security and has built a reputation in the market in this aspect. iOS 13 has introduced new security guidelines and it’s now required for all developers to include only one channel that enables interaction among users. Apart from this, it is necessary to include any application that has been developed for iOS 15 in the App Transport Security.
Apple has taken further necessary steps to penetrate the enterprise app market by improving upon its user experiences for employees and providing enhanced security and privacy. These steps make it an attractive choice for both budding entrepreneurs and corporate giants.
Apple Pay now ensures enhanced security to accommodate its growing digital payments. iOS is the ideal platform that guarantees smooth and secure transactions in any application.
Enterprises are preferring migrating to Cloud because it provides multiple advantages including customized data storage capabilities and analytics tools while being lighter on the pocket. It also results in enhanced security and smoother operations. This provides an enormous opportunity for app developers to provide cloud-based solutions on iOS.
The improvements brought about by the latest iOS 15 updates are nothing short of revolutionary and change the dynamics of mobile app development. For now, iOS developers have their hands full on how they can leverage the new technologies and build better products
Dairy Delivery Software
Native Milk always had to deal with route optimization to maximize profit and frequent changing of delivery boys. While this was easily manageable manually in offline business, it was a big headache when their business went digital.
We developed a mobile application for the drivers with route optimization. The total delivery area is divided into various routes and orders are sorted according to different routes. A driver is then assigned a single route.
PlanTech, (Construction Project Management software Case Study) a well-established US based construction company with huge projects, needed an improvement of their business processes and better optimization of their resources. As their business expanded, projects continuously got delayed which resulted in lawsuits by unhappy clients. We faced a variety of challenges to develop niche technological solutions for a company involved in the construction industry.
We designed separate web and mobile applications for foremen i.e. project managers and for construction staff (labourers). The applications has synchronized features such as calendar, attendance etc. that were updated real time Simple user interface for the layman was developed after many iterations and approval from the client.
We developed a dedicated central project management panel. The purpose was to have a centralised system update where all team leaders from different departments could update on their tasks at work.
We needed a fast technology to synchronize the source data to our system.
We had to run our programs real time during the horse race.
We ran our calculations on the given data, but by the time we generated an analysis of the probable winner, the market trends and positions of the race horses altered so our result had no value.
The reason behind using node.js is that we were able to establish a swift and persistent connection between betfair and our algorithm.
We could run our program with race data and generate results using the latest trends up-to-the-second with more than 99 % of the source data matching with our index.
On-Demand Delivery App
The client was clear with their needs but was not tech savvy enough to state specific requirements.
In GetIt the driver and vendor are treated as separate entities unlike a regular taxi application where such division does not exist.
We initiated brainstorming sessions with the client to plan out the project.
We built application functionality to optimize the process while simultaneously taking all stakeholders into account.
The client had an understanding of NFC but they had no idea of how the technology behind NFC works.
The client needed a secure platform as they wanted to keep the customer data secured.
We did a knowledge transfer with the client and explained the technology behind NFC and QR code.
We undertook a variety of security measures to prevent any leakage of user data.
The oldest insurance company of Lebanon reached out to us. They needed to digitize their operations and develop a lending application.
The target customers of the bank were mostly laymen with not much technical know-how. They consisted of old people, rural families, middle class urban families etc. Thus digitization was a challenge.
We developed a mechanism for the bank to directly disburse the loan amount to the customer’s bank account. This saved a trip to the bank of the customer and saved a lot of time for both the parties.
