iOS app development process in practice requires frequent testing and continuous maintenance until the app is launched onto the App Store. iOS developers need to take several precautions set up by Apple to ensure a secure and private user-friendly experience is achieved.
We have mapped out the steps to provide you with a detailed guide of our process:
Refining the concept or idea
Every great project starts with a great idea. Once you have your concept in mind, the next step is to ask yourself, “What solution does my app bring to market?”. This helps to define your unique proposition and makes you stand out from the competition. If you need help to refine your idea, our experienced team is always available to chat and take your idea to the next level.
iOS App Strategy
The market can be extremely competitive so it’s imperative to conduct a competitor analysis, market research and ensure that your app will comply with Apple’s strict iOS guidelines for design security. Our team is on hand to give you the ongoing support that you need. We can offer a marketing playbook that outlines your next steps post-launch.
iOS App Wireframing
Wireframing involves developing the foundation for the subsequent app design process. This includes creating blueprints/digital sketches that showcase how the app will look and function. Our UX/UI designers will map out the specifications for development and identify any tools required for integration.
Our brand specialists work collaboratively to create a brand to fit the needs of your business while taking the right steps to ensure it translates into the digital world. We set up a collaborative mood board to understand the requirements and visual direction of the brand. The team offers multiple concept variations and refinement to ensure the brand meets your intentions. Finally, you will be provided with the brand guidelines and assets to ensure your brand is in the best position moving forward.
iOS App Design – UI and UX Strategy
The next step is to design the front-end of your iOS app development. This is where our design team will ensure the app aligns with your brand’s visual identity and apply that to the wireframes. The team’s main focus is to create a high-quality user experience. Finally, the team delivers a high-fidelity prototype that can be used to market and promote your app to investors if required.
User Stories for iOS Apps
The user stories are a detailed document that outlines each function or interaction the user has with the app. It is a guide to the functionality and technical requirements for your app and will be used for the back-end development. This document provides the cost estimation for your final app and outlines a plan for future iterations.
iOS App Development
We ensure that the user interface is designed to an optimal standard and deploy techniques to code the functionality and usability of the app. During this stage of our process, we can rely on the native iOS features to improve the quality of the user’s experience, this includes navigation, list views, and collating data silos to perform as a single unit. Being able to build an iOS native app not only means it works seamlessly with Apple products, but also we focus on setting up the backend correctly to be able to support the Native iOS development.
Our team provides regular quality assurance testing at every stage of the design and development process. We check to see that the app functions correctly and that there are no bugs detected. We undergo many types of testing to ensure your product is delivered at the highest quality, these include:
Deployment and Market Submission
Once we are happy that your app is at the highest quality, we will confirm the final submission to the App Store. Based on the security checks and testing by Apple to ensure your product complies with their standards, this can take a few days to be approved.
App Boxer offers a 3-month warranty on all our products which ensures our products meet the highest quality standards. During this time we offer any ongoing support and technical maintenance that may be required.
iOS app development is the exclusive process of making mobile applications for Apple hardware including iPhone and iPads. It makes use of specific software, written in the Swift programming language or Objective-C language. It is then deployed to the App store for users to download.
iOS app development services are dependent on the size and complexity of your project, as well as the rate for programming services. Development costs can cover:
An average iOS app development project costs are as follows:
Simple iOS apps with basic functionalities (2 months to build); Costs: $25,000
More complex apps (over 2 months of development); $50,000
High complexity iOS (six months or more of development); $80,000-$250,000
Brands that develop iOS apps are companies that care and desire to provide better customer service to their customers. The more enjoyable the app and easier to use, increases the relationship between customer and business. iOS apps in particular have an easy to navigate interface, and Apple product users always praise the controlled environment about Apple product devices. Additionally, iOS app development takes significantly less time than its Android app counterpart as there’s only one wireframe to create.
