Here, we share the benefits of developing an iOS application, the basics of making a successful app, and why you should choose Jackrabbit as your partner along the way.

What Is An iOS App?

iOS applications are mobile apps developed to run on Apple’s iOS-powered devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. They are available through the App Store and are well-loved by mobile users for their simplicity, privacy, and robustness.

Why Choose iOS?

If you’re still on the fence about creating your mobile application, now is the best time to develop an iOS app. Today’s mobile app market is hotter than ever, and SerpWatch expects mobile applications to bring in more than $935 billion in revenue by 2023.

Sensor Tower also found that apps in the Apple App Store generate nearly twice the revenue of those in the Google Play Store. With these stats, it makes business sense to choose iOS to maximize profits.

We help you make the most of mobile apps’ earning potential with our high-end, custom iOS app development services. Our development team will guide you through the entire process, from conceptualization to rollout. More importantly, we’ll ensure your app functions superbly on your targeted Apple devices like iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, and Apple Watches.  

Why Choose Custom iOS Development Services?

Many brands invest in native apps for iOS because they want to give Apple customers the best online experience possible. Studies have shown that positive customer experiences are deciding factors for patronizing a brand, product, or service. Simply put, people are more likely to buy from an e-commerce store or obtain a service from a company for the second, third, or nth time if they had a wonderful experience the first time around. 

But why iOS? Because Apple product users generally belong to a middle- to high-income demographic with buying power and high digital proficiency. 

  • There are over 1.5 billion iPhone users worldwide as of 2023.
  • Apple is the leading brand for smartphones in the United States. It commands 61.3% of the US market with 124.7 million active users. It far outpaces the second leading platform, Samsung, whose market share is 22.03%.
  • Most iPhone users are between the ages of 18 and 45.
  • Many are high-income earners. Professionals, managerial, and executive-level employees typically have recent iPhone devices.
  • Many iPhone users are loyal to the brand and own several other devices. They leverage the efficiency of iOS ecosystems for work and enjoy them for leisure and entertainment at home.

Investing in an iOS app can have substantial benefits and ROI for businesses targeting high-income markets. Mobile applications bring products and services closer to customers, giving them access to these offerings regardless of where they live. Creating a native app specifically for the App Store ensures your products and services become accessible to your target market of iPhone users.


The Benefits of Custom iOS App Development Services

You might have heard about programs and software that enable people who don’t know any programming language and aren’t trained to write code to build mobile apps. You must be thinking, why hire an iOS app development services company if there’s a potentially cheaper DIY route?

The simple answer is that there’s so much more that you can accomplish for your app when you have actual professionals and web development specialists working on it. You can enjoy a higher degree of customization and develop features that are too complex to do on DIY platforms. They may also seem more affordable, but considering the limitations in functionality and customization, investing in a well-rounded, high-performance app from the get-go would be more cost-effective. 

Here are a few more reasons to invest in custom iOS app development:


Provide Your Users With Excellent User Experience

Apple is well-received by mobile users because of its unmatched tech innovations and customer service. You can use this to your advantage to create iOS applications that run smoothly and ultimately deliver a pleasant, hassle-free experience to your users.

Enjoy Affordability and Faster Development

Compared to Android applications, you can enjoy a relatively more affordable and faster development with iOS apps. This is mainly because these mobile apps are written in Swift, a modern, clean, and concise programming language. And since iOS has a closed system, app developers like Jackrabbit Mobile can effortlessly create high-performing apps for Apple’s standardized systems and devices.


Launch Secure Apps Into the Market

With the numbers of hackers growing and becoming increasingly creative with their scams, developing an iOS lets you protect your users – and your reputation. Since iOS products are known for their high-security capabilities, you can launch mobile applications to help your users engage in safe transactions and secure their data.


Penetrate Developed Markets Easier

Apple’s products are popular in countries with a high standard of living. So while Android users may be higher in number, iOS users are often willing to pay more for their mobile applications. So as long as your iOS app is planned and developed meticulously, you can quickly see higher revenues and returns on your investment.


Engage Apple’s Loyal Followers

Apple is among the most-loved brands that are trusted by customers around the world. Thanks to its top-grade products, it continues to attract new users and retain its existing clients. Developing an iOS app lets you tap into Apple’s extensive pool of loyal followers, from which you can create your own customer base.


Guarantee of Quality

Hiring professionals specializing in iOS mobile app development services ensures your app meets the App Store’s high standards for quality. More importantly, you can confidently introduce it to your customers, knowing it will perform well and do what it should. Our iOS app development services company works closely with every client to ensure we meet every requirement for aesthetics and functionality. Moreover, we comply with legal requirements for security, especially when creating apps that facilitate financial transactions or collect customers’ personal information.

Jackrabbit Mobile’s iOS App Development Process

Since Apple strives to deliver a smooth and secure experience to its users, it requires all iOS app developers to comply with its development guidelines. While this makes the process more challenging, the effort it takes to develop an iOS app will still be ultimately determined by its complexity. It’s one of the reasons why it’s necessary to seek professional iOS mobile app development services: experienced web development specialists can ensure your app meets the requirements to publish an app on the App Store.

And to give you an idea of what it Apple’s crucial guidelines are, here’s what our development process generally looks like:

Product Requirements
Phase 1: Discovery

During the discovery phase, we'll meet with you to understand the big idea behind your mobile application, analyze the market you're trying to enter, and look at solutions similar to yours that already exist. Then, once we understand your user persona and target market, we'll use our technical expertise to conceptualize your app's functions.

Business Logic
Phase 2: Ensure Compliance

Apple has specific requirements for iOS apps in terms of design, privacy, security, and legal formalities, among others. That’s why our developers take the time to ensure the mobile application we’re building adheres to these guidelines. This ensures your app gets published in the App Store without any problems or necessary modifications.

Technical Research
Phase 3: Design

The actual iOS app designing process starts with creating digital sketches called wireframes. This process lets us craft conceptual layouts according to your desired look and function. Afterward, we can also produce prototypes to provide you with initial testing of your app’s overall design and workflow. 

Lastly, this phase includes developing the software architecture. Here, our mobile app developers work on ensuring the stability and scalability of your iOS application.

Testing & Support
Phase 4: Testing

At Jackrabbit Mobile, we work with Xcode, Apple’s integrated development environment (IDE) and its APIs and tools to build your app and give it a test run on different iOS versions. We also use TestFlight to deploy your app’s build even at 50-60 percent completion so we can catch bugs and make the necessary tweaks as early as possible.

We take this phase of the development process seriously as we understand the importance of Quality Assurance (QA) testing in ensuring your app is usable, stable, and secure.

Phase 5: Maintenance

Our custom iOS app development doesn’t end once we’ve successfully launched your app on the App Store. Instead, we continue working with you and carry out routine maintenance and updates to keep your app running correctly and efficiently.

Tips for Making a Successful iOS App

To ensure your iOS app’s success, first and foremost you must ensure that it complies with Apple’s guidelines. Here are the five fundamental factors you must take into account throughout the development process:

  1. Safety - Apple wants its users to feel safe with the apps they install on their devices, so you must ensure that your application does not have any offensive or upsetting content.

  2. Performance - To pass through Apple Store’s review process without an issue, see to it that you’re uploading your app’s complete version.

  3. Business - Explain how you’ll monetize your app on the App Store. If your business model isn’t clear and they can’t understand your monetizing strategies, you may face some hurdles during the App Review process.

  4. Design - Both Apple and Apple users love applications that are simple, refined, innovative, and easy to use, so ensure yours checks all the boxes.

  5. Legal Requirements - Following all the legal requirements in the location you want to launch your app is an effective way to ensure it gets approved and published on the App Store.
