These trends will remodel the technologies for the rest of the year and the next years as well.

1. ARKit 2 Feature in iOS 12

ARKit 2 is one of the most prominent features of iOS 12 and it is contributing a lot towards the AR app market. It renders multiple access features where the same AR object can be shared by many users at the same time. Apart from being used in gaming, ARKit 2 is also used for things like shared world experiences, education innovation, retail advertising, etc. This feature has set the alarm ringing for large scale AR experience.

2. Release of Swift 5 Programming Language

Apple has released Swift 5 programming language, which has a stable Application Binary Interface (ABI) and binary compatibility. To leverage the power of this language, each iPhone mobile application development company is focusing on how they can make the best use of this language. Swift libraries will be integrated with all the present and future versions of macOS, iOS, Wearable OS, and TVOS.

3. Apple HomeKit

2020 is all set to witness the remarkable development where a smartphone will do all the chores with a single command. As a user, you will not only be able to turn lights on or off from using iPhone or iPad but also can store a device’s information in a single file that can be accessed via cloud storage, which will make home automation features accessible remotely.

4. AI and SiriKit

Siri was developed by SRI International AI Center. To date, Siri only used powerful speech recognition along with natural language processing techniques. But things have changed with the Machine Learning and AI integration for Siri. SiriKit enables iOS apps and WatchOS apps to work with Siri. The new voice of Siri possesses a personalized touch that feels realistic and natural.

5. WatchOS 5

Custom iOS app development has gained a lot of popularity among users and developers. The trend of WatchOS 5 is here to enrich the experience of users by providing interactive medium to notifications through customized controls.

6. Apple Pay

Using Apple Pay with iPhone or Apple Watch is faster and convenient than using a credit or debit card. You can use it at the App Store to buy games, pay for a ride or get a pizza delivered with just a touch or a glance.

Final Words:

You need to make your mobile app stand apart from the ones that are already present in the Play Store in millions. For that, you need to hire an iPhone mobile application development company and augment the level of your business with an attractive, user-friendly and modern app.
