During iOS app development, there are several challenges that are faced by the developers to fulfil the requirements of the clients to deliver the best services. On the other hand, it is important for clients to be aware of those challenges to understand the situation and deal with it calmly.
Top 4 most common iOS app development challenges
1. Lack of Compatibility
Apple has recently updated to 64- bit technology. Due to which, developers need to upgrade their apps to make it compatible enough for latest 64-bit platform.
What if the apps are not upgraded? This would result in slowing down the device and app may not respond well with 32-bit technology. So, keep your app up-to-date with the modern version.
2. Limited Memory and Storage
The app must be concise. This is one of the biggest challenges faces by the developers, as the user would never be interested in installing a heavy storage app into their device.
The challenge developers face is to keep the resulting application as small as possible after completing all the necessary requirements.
3. Low Battery Consumption
I will never use an app for long if it would drain my battery in seconds.
Including more features and creating complex user interface can lead to more battery consumption which can exhaust the battery of the user's device. Clients always demands an iPhone app development company to build an app that would be efficient to use when it comes to battery consumption.
4. Approval By App Store
In App Store, submission process is not as easy like Google Play.
Competing with around 2 million+ apps, App Store mainly rejects the apps for following factors-
- Lack of meta-data
- Demo account not functioning
- Bugs found in the app
- Features that App Store doesn't support
- Poor app functionality
So, these were the challenges mainly faced during iOS app development process which can be overcome easily if you are aware of them in advance.
