  • Atlanta, GA (1888PressRelease) July 20, 2018 - The development stack upgrade not only relates to a minor change in development platforms, but a major shift in the entire development process; starting from the adoption of 3-D Touch gestures, deeper Apple Pay integration, support for drag-and-drop and on-device augmented reality solutions.

    Released on September 19th, 2017, the eleventh version of the beloved iOS operating system saw a whole host of features and upgrades, designed to enhance user experience and improve development times for apps. Some of the most important changes made in this iteration was the addition of a multitasking interface for iPhone and iPad devices, a lock screen based notification system, live wallpapers for the iPhone X, customizable toggle solutions, integrated file management tools and various improvements in stability and performance across a wide range of iPhone and iPad devices, supporting the system as far back as the iPhone 5S devices launched in fall 2013. In addition, the iOS voice assistant Siri has seen a major revamp, with the ability to translate multiple languages on the fly, as well as giving users the ability to type directly to the Siri interface.

    According to a senior developer and spokesperson for AIS Technolabs, “This is a monumental shift in the way we develop custom solutions for iOS devices. The new features allow users greater mobility, customizability and improve user experience without sacrificing development-related issues. Apple has effectively silenced its critics with such a bold move, and provides us with a much larger programming stack to work on. This version of iOS brings it much closer to Mac OS X, making it easier for developers to work on the same code branch for multiple devices at the same time.”

    One of the most important revamps on this version of iOS is the multitasking feature in iPads. A large consumer base had been using iPads as a laptop device by adding a customized physical iPad keyboard and wanted the benefits of their MacBooks on their iPads. As a result, the newly designed multitasking menu is accessible from any screen, as well as let users create a split-screen view when they are working using two or more different apps. All of these features allow for up to 4 different apps to be visible to the user at the same time.
    One of the major overhauls was made to the camera app, with native support for QR-code scanning directly from the camera app. As per the AIS Technolabs spokesperson, “This brings a fresh dimension to the way people use apps on a daily basis. For us developers, the open Apple Camera API automatically processes QR code information, allowing us to incorporate these features directly through native tools, foregoing third-party API support.”

    The new version of iOS also comes with HEVC support. HEVC or High-Efficiency Video Coding is the next-generation in video codec technology, allowing for faster encoding of video while taking up less than half of the space compared to previous H.264 formats. With newer devices, HEVC is done directly through the A9 coprocessor, while older devices get support through software decoding and encoding. “HEVC is the very best in codec technology, and will allow us to incorporate video conferencing and video streaming on a large number of apps with ease”, was how the lead developer at AIS Technolabs described the functioning of the codec.

    With iOS 11 App Development having 88% or the market share in May 2018, it is one of the most popular iOS versions released, and AIS Technolabs has upgraded its solutions to ensure that iPhone and iPad users get the very best iOS apps that the company develops for their esteemed clientele. After conquering web development platforms and creating stunning websites for its client base, the company is focusing on providing the best to its clients using the very best in technology.
