iOS development is the process of creating software applications that run on Apple’s iOS operating system, which powers iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices. iOS development involves using Apple’s official development tools and programming languages, such as Swift or Objective-C, to build native iOS apps.
Here are the key components of iOS development:
- Swift or Objective-C
- iOS SDK
- Design Guidelines
- App Store
Similar to Android development, iOS development also has two main approaches: native development and hybrid development:
1. Native iOS Development: Native iOS development involves building iOS apps using programming languages such as Swift or Objective-C and iOS development frameworks such as UIKit and Cocoa Touch. These apps are specifically designed to run on iOS devices and can take full advantage of the platform’s capabilities.
