HOW WE DO IT

Full-Cycle iOS Development Services

Product Planning and Strategy

App strategy and product planning is a fundamental phase of mobile app development. Our business analysts work closely with key stakeholders on your team to collect all project requirements and identify the problems and use cases the app will address. The deliverable is a product blueprint including app concept, project roadmap, and timeline.

Design and Prototyping

To identify potential risks, maximize the efficiency of the development process, and make sure that the app concept aligns with your vision, we develop a prototype. It visualizes app UI/UX and demonstrates user flows and app functions. From wireframing to interactive prototypes with appealing design, we create compelling interfaces and intuitive user experiences.

Development and Launch

All iOS development is executed using an agile process. According to a project architecture, we define a technology stack and ramp up a team with required skills and experience. Our iOS developers, backend engineers, and testers team up to build a viable application with pre-arranged set of features by the end of each sprint. Once the app is ready to go live, we will help you to navigate through App Store submission process or handle it by our own.

Maintenance and Support

After your app is available on the App Store, the work continues with post-production activities. For the next app releases you need to optimize your app, add new features and extend functionality, do a lot of testing and bug fixing, make sure your app supports iOS platform updates and new Apple devices. Our maintenance and support services will help to keep your iOS app running smoothly.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you design your own app?

Today, companies have many opportunities to design an iOS app for their business. Remaining one of the most popular platforms, iOS provides a powerful ground for companies to increase customer engagement, improve client services, or streamline business operations.

iOS development is a lucrative niche for companies, as the platform ensures a high demand, significant market reach, and excellent revenue generation capacity. A reliable software development partner will help you design your own app in accordance with your business requirements and goals.

How do you make a custom app for the iPhone?

Custom iPhone app development requires not only strong expertise and profound experience of a team but also a clear and structured approach to the process of designing a mobile solution. Before you see your app published on the App Store, there is a sequence of steps you need to go through. They include choosing an IT vendor, validating your idea, designing and developing your product, and, finally, testing it.

On top of that, creating a successful product involves clearly defined and delivered to the team project requirements. However, before starting to build your app, you should consider signing an NDA to ensure that all project-related data remains confidential.

How much does it cost to build an iOS app?

The cost of iPhone application development services ranges depending on a variety of factors. Generally, the key aspects that impact project cost calculation include:

  • Features and functionality
  • Design complexity
  • Development timeline
  • Project team
  • Engagement model
  • Maintenance cost

On average, the iOS app development budget may differ from modest $10,000 to impressive $500,000. There is always an option to start with an MVP version of your app that enables saving costs, estimating market demands more precisely, and collecting users’ feedback.

What coding language is used for iOS apps?

The most common languages used to develop native iOS apps remain Objective-C, Swift, and C++. Apart from coding languages, app development in this case also includes such toolsets as AppCode or Apple Xcode.

There is an alternative way to build an iOS solution — a cross-platform approach. It incorporates applying the knowledge of JavaScript, Java, C++, or C# programming languages as well as React Native, Xamarin, or Titanium frameworks.

A skilled team of developers with extensive expertise can always advise you on which approach suits your iOS app goals and requirements better.
