1. IoT Apps-
The HomeKit forayed at the developer’s forum in the latter half of last year, and this year, we will get to see its widespread application in consumer devices, IoT technologies have become sophisticated. iOS’s homegrown iBeacon technology has also matured and become a more reliable device. Depending on its advancement, Apple first launched beacon-based applications for commercial use in events and retail industry. Now it is prepared to launch it for personal use in the home space.
2. GPS and Beacons-
The GPS and beacon technologies are being used in commercial spaces for pushing advanced marketing efforts that target individual customers.Their application has been widespread in household appliances, too, in the past two years. However, it will gain widespread utilization this year. Beacon and GPS sensors are being integrated into automobiles, kitchen appliances, lighting, washing machines, and much more. With iOS 7, Apple has created a separate interface that the device owner can use to manage and control the various electronic appliances in their homes. They can do this while being present within the vicinity of their homes or from some remote location. This can is also an energy-saving, environment-friendly move.
3. Augmented Reality-
Augmented reality is making headway through iOS applications, largely using GPS technology to offer a whole range of services to its users. The use of augmented reality for games is changing the landscape of gaming industry, integrating games into every activity of individuals. In 2017, augmented reality and GPS will be indispensable for the mobile app developer.
Security! As people more on their devices for performing intimate personal tasks pertaining to managing their homes, finances, and much more, mobile app security will be a prominent issue that mobile app developers will have to address.Apple’s devices are renowned for the advanced level secure infrastructure, security may be compromised, especially as Apple plans to open some aspects of app development to the larger public. Also, until an international standard arrives, mobile app security will be a point of concern.
5. iOS for Enterprises-
Apple’s iPad tablet is widely adopted by enterprises, and business applications are also used prominently. However, it has made real breakthroughs with the beacon technology, which is being used in applications for commercial and marketing purposes. The iPhone’s market share may witness greater rise as iOS integrates it to devices such as the watch, Mac laptop, and beacon-enabled office appliances.
6. Swift 3.0 Proprietary Programming-
Currently, Apple developers have more or less distanced themselves from Objective-C and have enthusiastically adopted Swift programming language in its entirety. The Swift platform is easy to use and navigate and can be used to create advanced applications. In 2017, use of Swift 3.0 will only extend, especially to develop apps for iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
