Smartphones continue to evolve the functionality of connected devices. Mobile apps now serve as the principal means of device control in the Internet of Things (IoT). Instead of hardwired screens and buttons, today’s developers are offloading the vast majority of user interfaces to our handheld companions.
In this way, app developers must ensure their designs are user-friendly and technically sound. And, with more than one billion of them around the world, this means developers need to consider the ins and outs of the iPhone. Apple’s flagship device counts a unique operating system — iOS — that should not be ignored in app rollouts.
