Usually, developers and companies prefer developing apps for Android due to fewer restrictions compared to iOS. Android users in the entire world are more than iOS which is why companies prefer making Android apps.

This leaves a lot of opportunities for the developers and various companies to get hold of the iOS market and develop the outstanding application for iOS users.

Before you start developing iOS, it’s important for you to know that unlike Android, iOS has more stringent rules that need to be followed appropriately.

Let’s discuss in detail about the guidelines that you need to know before starting developing an iOS app.

Initial Planning

Having a rough idea of what are you going to develop, whom you will be targetting, how is it going to help your audience, is it going to be an informative app, fun-filled app, entertainment or a gaming app? Also, question yourself why people will choose your app over others? Once you get the answers to these questions, it means you are ready to develop your app. 


Research is one of the most important steps that you shouldn’t miss. Before start developing an iOS app for your audience, find out which types of apps are trending more and why? Also check different types of apps, the way they are made, and what are they offering that people are keen to use them. 

In case you have finalized the which type of app you’re going to make, start researching similar apps and find out the tools and technology used behind it. 

Create Wireframes

Creating wireframes would always help you in delivering rich user-experience. These are the roadmaps that will lead you towards success.

Make sure that you built realistic goals that are easy to achieve and deliver rich user-experience. These roadmaps also consist of information blueprints that will help you to design another similar application in the future. 

3. Design

In order to create an intuitive app that looks appealing and engaging, you need to come up with unique designs and layout ideas. Work on enhancing on-screen features such as graphics, icons, animations and so on.

4. Software Architecture Planning

The planning for software architecture is done with the help of backend and front-end developers together. The software that you’re going to use needs to be stable and scalable for the application.

iOS apps use model view controller paradigm (MVC) as their core principal which further breaks MVC into three components: data, user-interface, and software.

 5. Testing Phase

Testing the approval and submission phase in iOS is difficult. The developer has to go through various checks to ensure there are no bugs and errors such as:

Test case preparation

Performance testing

Automated script identification and modification

Usability testing

Device testingSecurity and Compliance Testing

Manual and automated testing

6.  Submitting the App to the App Store

Submitting the post is the last step but needs to be done carefully as it takes a few steps:

Create an app id

Create a profile for distribution

Configure your target settings in Xcode

Create an app store listing

Create a release build.

Fill in the version information

Submit the version for review

App release

Wrapping Up

It is a long road ahead from the first idea to completion of the app. It is best to hire sound, skillful, and experienced developers who have a clear idea of developing iOS apps without any hassles.
