iPhone/iOS App Development Trends to follow in 2019 with all new iOS 12

In earlier times, Smartphones were thought to be a high-end technology devices that had least applications for any normal mobile user. Currently, there is about 2.1 billion mobile users accessing to Smartphones and is expected to reach 5 billion’s at the end of 2019. Moreover, iOS App Development Companies should have to immediately adopt to the latest trends of iOS 12 for otherwise would fail miserably. Many of the Mobile App Developers wish to evolve through iOS 12 and enjoys utilizing cutting edge technologies to build apps for businesses.

Some of the prominent advancements of iOS 12 in iOS app developments are ARKit2, Siri Shortcuts, etc. The prevalence for iOS 12 is presumed to be at certainty with every features frequently updated for businesses to take advantage off. It would become a usual practice for every app developers to know about all the features and trends present in iOS 12 and then build their dream iOS apps for the end user. Finally, it is the trends followed in iOS apps that should shape-up the way for how users should get engaged.

Some of the most popular trends followed in making iOS apps are listed below:

ARKit 2

ARKit 2

Once having gone through a visual at the Apple demos presented for iPhone 8 and iPhone X it will definitely reinvigorate all the beliefs of the end users and trends expected in 2019. The introduction of ARKit 2 has tremendously helped in app developers to create innovative AR apps that portrays vivid AR experiences.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence
The inevitable applications of Virtual Assistant and their machine learning abilities have attracted a lot of business to invest heavily in iOS App developments especially building Chat Bots. Instantaneously, this should add to the fancies of every Mobile App Developers interest in this year 2019. The presence of AI based Siri in iOS 12 provides the comfort zone for instant access third party iOS apps at any given moment. This poses to the great demand for integrating voice assistants to be built in iOS Apps within app developers.

Core ML2

Core ML2
Core ML is a highly significant feature in the latest iOS 12 for it has the ability to natural language processing and gaming functions. It gives iOS App Developers the power to quantize 75% of the trained machine learning model effectively. Core ML can coordinate and accelerate every native functions present in the Apple Neural Engine for achieving faster operations. Present iPhones would now get the power of making predictions and understanding patterns, so well that it nearly adapts to every user experiences. It makes app developers meet up with the convenience in designing iOS Apps that’s present inherently with real-time machine learning capabilities.

iOS App Security

iOS App Security
