There are more than 27.5 billion mobile applications downloaded by over 2 billion smartphones across the globe today. These figured have skyrocketed the growth of mobile development with impeccable compatibility and innovation. The competitive world that we thrive in, it is inevitable for any and every progressive enterprise to get integrated with development in modern technology with potential vision.

Talking about advancements in technology, at the McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, California, at their prominent summer event, WWDC, Apple had introduced some important and innovative new technologies for app developers to develop applications easily, speedily, and efficiently.

SwiftUI is a transformational development framework which helps in building powerful user interfaces, speedily and seamlessly. ARKit 3, RealityKit and Reality Composer are some of the advanced components designed by Apple which makes it even easier for developers to create compelling AR experiences for consumer and business apps; boosting the overall iPhone application development services.

Then there are some great new tools and APIs that largely simplify the process of bringing iPad apps to Mac. Not to mention the core updates to Core ML and Create ML, allowing for power packed and streamlined on-device machine learning apps.

SwiftUI

Apple believes that their goal for Swift has always been about making development faster, easier and more interactive, and a modern UI framework is a huge part of that vision. Since the day it was first launched, SwiftUI provides powerful and intuitive new user interface framework in order to build sophisticated app UIs. One can put to use simple, easy-to-understand declarative code, and developers can create stunning, full-featured user interfaces complete with smooth animations. This becomes a cakewalk for certain projects for an iPhone application development company working on complex requirements. SwiftUI saves developers time by providing a huge amount of automatic functionality including interface layout, Dark Mode, Accessibility, right-to-left language support and internationalization.

Augmented Reality

ARKit 3 has become the vessel that puts people at the center of Augmented reality. Motion Capture feature provides developers with the functionality to integrate people’s movement into their app, and with People Occlusion, the AR content shows up naturally in front of or behind people enabling more immersive AR experiences and fun green screen-like applications. Apples ARKit 3 also kickstarts the front camera to track up to three faces, as well as simultaneous front and back camera support. There are functions like collaborative sessions, which makes it even faster to jump into a shared AR experience.

Bring iPad apps to Mac

There are new tools and APIs that makes it easier than ever to bring iPad apps to Mac. With tools like Xcode, developers are able to open an existing iPad project and simply check a single box to automatically add fundamental Mac and windowing features, and adapt platform-unique elements like touch controls to keyboard and mouse — providing a huge head start on building a native Mac version of their app. The Mac and iPad apps both share the same project and source code, hence any changes that are made to the code get translated to both the iPadOS and macOS versions of the app, thereby saving developers’ precious time and resources by enabling one team to work on both versions of their app.

Core ML and Create ML

Apple’s Core ML 3 backs the acceleration of more types of advanced, real-time machine learning models. There are more than 100 model layers that are now supported with Core ML, apps can use state-of-the-art models in order to present experiences that deeply understand vision, natural language and speech like never before. Not only that, now, developers can update machine learning models on-device by using model personalization.

Conclusion
Apple has a stronghold when it comes to new and innovative technologies. This gives Apple a competitive advantage and a winning curve. Any reputed iPhone application development company understands how well Apple treads with innovation and radical progression.
