iOS 14 Update

Apple iOS 14 Update – All You Need to Know

It was in June 2020 that Apple announced the arrival of the new iOS 14 update. This news took the tech world by a storm and had everyone speculating about what exciting new features Apple would reveal.

There was some heat over the internet towards apple taking the features from android in this release, specifically the widgets. However, many questions arise like; why did apple choose to add widgets now, should we even update our iPhones and what are the new iOS 14 features that Apple has in store for iOS developers. Keep reading and by the end of this blog, you’ll know everything there is to know about iOS
14 and how this update can benefit iOS app developers.

Apple released its latest version of the iOS operating system, iOS 14 on September 16 and this is the biggest iOS update till now. This update is all about the software since it has been released without any new iPhone device. Where the last few updates were more focused on enhancing the stability, this release is all about streamlining the interface by changing home screen designs, updating existing apps,
improvements in Siri and many other tweaks.

iOS 14 Features

Let’s see what features Apple has introduced in the new iOS 14 update.

  1. Widgets
  2. If you have seen the Android vs iOS debates all over the internet then you’re probably aware of how Apple has redesigned the Home screen by including widgets for the first time ever. These widgets (though not as customizable as an android) can be moved anywhere on the screen and give the home screen a pretty neat look.

    Why Apple is adding widgets 8 years after android did? Well, the answer to that is; it seems that Apple wanted to make sure to use the widgets in its own way by adding its own twist through a couple of extra features on top of the widgets (like the Smart Stack).

    These widgets are all first-party apple apps however for the first time ever; third-party apps can also use these widgets and this here is the most exciting news. iOS developers now have an option to work on third party-apps that can benefit from these customizable widgets. E.g. users can now have a google calendar widget or a widget that can control the room lighting setting with the press of a button. Thus, this iOS 14 update can prove to be a major source of revenue for third party applications.

  3. Smart Stack
  4. Apart from adding widgets on the home screen, Apple has added interesting dynamic nuances to these widgets. One of these is called a smart stack which is a stack of widgets. Through this Smart stack feature, iPhone uses on-device intelligence to make the right widget appear on the surface based on time location and activity.

  5. App Library
  6. The new App Library is a space revealed by swiping all the way to the right on the home screen. It shows all the apps on the iPhone at a glance where the apps are automatically organised. Inside the App Library, there is also a straight- up alphabetical searchable list for the apps. Apps can be kept in the app library to give the Home screen a cleaner look.

  7. Compact UI
  8. In the previous versions including the iOS 13 update, there are many features and actions that unnecessarily take up the whole screen. iOS 14 update has remedied that by making the User Interface compact. For instance, a face time call won’t dominate the whole screen but would just appear as a drop-down banner on the top. Even during the facetime call, the video can be minimised and other actions on the phone won’t pause the call. This picture in picture window is very flexible. It can be moved around on the screen and even the visual video can be hidden with audio playing in the background.

    Siri has also been updated so that Siri requests no longer take over the entire screen and when activated, it just displays a small animated Siri icon on the bottom of the screen.

  9. Compatibility
  10. The new iOS 14 update is available to users as a free over the air update which can be done through settings. iOS 14 can be run on iPhone 6s or later devices. iPhone SE and 7th gen are also compatible.

What the new iOS 14 means for iOS app development

Now that you know all about the new iOS 14 features the question arises is the new iOS 14 update beneficial for an app development company or not. The most exciting news for the developers is that Apple has finally broken the tradition of keeping its closed off environment when it comes to its features.

  • App Clips

  • This lightweight version of apps can enable developers to promote their apps by offering some functionality and thus persuading the users to download the full version. The app clip can be discovered easily and its quick launching gives a good experience to the users.

  • Widgets

  • Widgets can be said to be the game-changer for iOS app development. As mentioned above, through widgets developers can come up with small yet striking representation of their app’s content and also allow them to display this at the centre of the user’s screen. Since widgets are supposed to be lightweight, it is a chance to show the best content of the app.

  • SwiftUI

  • New features and enhanced support for view layouts indicate that SwiftUI is not going anywhere and can be used by developers to define the structure and behavior of their entire app.

    At Mob Inspire we have an expert team of iOS app developers who are well versed in Swift as well as Sirikit.

  • Augmented Reality

  • ARKit 4 has been improved in the new iOS 14 while the Reality kit and help developers create a new level of animation and realism for AR experiences.

  • Machine Learning

  • Development is even easier and more extensive with new tools in Core ML for model deployment, new models and training capabilities in Create ML, as well as additional APIs for Vision and Natural Language. Thus, developers have the ability to build more flexible and secure ML-based apps.

From the above iOS 14 features, it is clear that for an app to truly shine, app developers and third parties will need to embrace features like widgets and App clips. However, this is easier said than done because Third-party widgets and app clips still need a lot of work.

Moreover, apple’s release of iOS 14 caught the developers by surprise causing them to scramble to meet the deadline. Apple announced the update a day earlier while usually companies announce the release date a week or two in advance. It is because of this short turnaround that many apps in the new update may have bugs. This is why developers are advising users not to update their phones just yet and wait until Apple has issued an update to fix the issues. Only time will tell how developers respond to this new iOS 14 update but our verdict is that many users will enthusiastically update their phones because who would want to use safari when you can use chrome.

At Mob Inspire, we excel in developing elegant and user-friendly apps for iOS and Android platforms. If you want to update your application to iOS 14 or make a new one and make the best use of the new iOS 14 features; connect with us today so that our experts can take you further.

Technology in Logistics

Gear up for these technologies in Logistics in 2020

Logistics industry is technology-intensive. We get to see a range of emerging technologies under research and development phases every year and another set of technologies making their ways toward commercial availability. A slight retrospection of the decade reveals that a number of new areas for research emerged while others moved onto the commercialization phase. In essence, technology in logistics is constantly evolving.

This article shares some of the innovative technologies that are highly likely to make commercial availability on a limited or large scale in the logistics industry. Each of these technologies mainly falls in internet of things (IoT), extended reality, automation, blockchain and self-driving domains.

5G integration into IoT for Wearable Technology in Logistics

The cases of IoT in logistics and supply chain are now frequently coming up. Fleet managers can track the locations of each vehicle in real-time while warehouse managers can verify the authenticity of goods. Besides warehouse staff can also locate every item instantly and determine ahead of time when the supply of a product falls short or exceeds the required limit.

The upcoming year would further intensify the use of IoT since 5G is most likely to get commercialized. The speed of data transfer between transmitters and receivers would increase manifold while latency would reduce remarkably.

Improvement in speed and latency is inevitable now because real-time data information sharing is no longer a choice. Instead it is a compulsion for a range of reasons. The two most pressing reasons include:

  1. The US alone suffers from as much as $43 billion annually in food losses. There is an increased demand from regulators as well as retailers and consumers to place perishable items under real-time surveillance.
  2. Apart from food losses, supply chain leaves a huge carbon footprint. As the governments are pushing businesses to implement strict policy for reducing emissions, the businesses have no or little choice except complying with standards.

The number of logistics operators integrating IoT in fleet management systems is going to increase significantly in 2020. Businesses would be required to integrate sensors in fleet that monitor humidity, pressure and temperature and share the results with fleet managers in real-time.

Besides, the use of sensors identifying amount of emissions and the corresponding data sharing medium within a logistics management software would also witness a sharp hike. Each operator would eventually require publicly sharing data about emissions to democratize the entire logistics chain.

Robotic Process Automation for warehouse optimization

The use of QR codes and subsequently, RFID tags enabled warehouse managers to do away with the task of verifying each item manually. QR readers are extensively used in at warehouses and retail stores to confirm authenticity of a product.

Besides, QR readers also enable staff to find price of an item instantly. Scanning a unit having QR code with QR reader shares the results on a dedicated mobile app. This is helpful in multiple ways

  • A store owner can remotely confirm if a product is available in sufficient quantity or not.
  • The managers can tackle counterfeiting of products. Moreover, smart warehouse technology in logistics management also prevent expired or smuggled product units.
  • Staff members of a store can locate a unit instantly.
  • Warehouse managers can perform effective aggregate planning by ensuring that supply corresponds to demand.

Mob Inspire delivers field service management software customized to each operator’s needs. The software solution with its extensive range of robotic process automation tools eliminates the need to perform manual warehouse management. You can keep as little workforce as you wish by adding the amount of automation.

Blockchain Technology in Logistics for instant payment verification

The amount of time consumed in delivering a shipment from one part of the world to another is unnecessarily huge. Each shipment has to be verified for smuggling, payment verification, and counterfeiting by a number of stakeholders including manufacturers, warehouse owners, retailers, end consumers and regulators. Consequently, the cost of logistics also increases significantly apart from time.

Blockchain is widely regarded as the most viable solution for 2020 and beyond. All major fleet operators including MAERSK with its largest containership fleet are adopting blockchain. The effectiveness is not limited to fleet management. Blockchain based logistics management software is also causing a revolution in retail store management.

Two of the most noteworthy use cases of blockchain technology in logistics management include:

  1. Card-less Payment and Verification
  2. Payment through cash was already a thing of past. Blockchain enables you to move even a step ahead to eliminate centralized banking entirely. The decentralized banking through cryptocurrencies allows you to make payments through bitcoins. You can even have your own cryptocurrency if you intend so.

    Apart from payments, logistics operators are successfully verifying payments through blockchain in a remarkably lesser time. The verification that took days in the past takes only a few seconds now. Besides, blockchain enables you to democratize transactions by allowing each stakeholder to have visibility of payment history in real-time.

  3. Retrospective Tracking of Goods
  4. Blockchain provides another strategy to track perishable goods. Each stakeholder can find the date of production and duration of travel for the unit being shipped. The involved parties have the access to entire history but none of them can forge or delete data since blockchain technology is immutable.

    The tracking through blockchain is highly efficient in tackling the counterfeiting of drugs – one of the biggest challenges in global pharma industry today. Each block provides exact and immutable details of the origin of a drug to ensure that retailers do not accept consignment with counterfeited units.

    The accumulative losses from delays in transportation, drug counterfeiting and foodborne diseases are of the order of several hundred billion dollars. Thus, blockchain based logistics management app solutions are inevitable for transportation and logistics industry.

The commercial framework for autonomous fleet in supply chain

Autonomous vehicles are rapidly becoming a norm. The year 2019 remained revolutionary with multiple operators launching level-3 self-driving vehicles. Apart from Tesla for private use, Uber and Waymo are utilizing autonomous vehicles for ridesharing purposes.

Although there are incidents involving crashes, yet the probability of an autonomous vehicle crash during a journey is very small relative to conventional vehicles. The number of miles traveled against that of crashes confirm this claim.

The encouraging results are pushing logistics fleet owners to introduce autonomous vehicles in supply chain too. Some of the sea-based and aerial logistics operator already have autonomous systems. However, a number of operators would introduce ground based autonomous fleet.

“Automated or self-driving vehicles are about to change the way we travel and connect with one another.”

Elaine Chao – U.S. Secretary of Transportation

Some large-scale logistics business managers are partially operating autopilot in vehicles. The autopilot technology in logistics is extensively used during intercity travels where traffic is minimal. The vehicles in the fleet are capable of applying brakes as soon as the leading vehicle applies brake.

This strategy is proving to be paying so well to research and development in fleet efficiency. The vehicles traveling at constant speed with calculated inter-vehicle distance ensure minimal air friction. Consequently, there is a considerable reduction in fuel consumption.

The commercialization of level-5 autonomy is highly unlikely to be on the cards anywhere before 2025, a number of businesses however would be introducing partial autonomy by the second half of 2020.

Extended reality to facilitate drivers and augment driving experience

Some of the major logistics service providers and vehicle manufacturers are introducing augmented reality features in vehicles for a highly immersive experience. The information including but not limited to weather update, cabin temperature, driving speeds, usual and unexpected blockades is now ubiquitous.

The fleet operators can also mark milestones virtually so that drivers would be able to see each labeled object and the corresponding information in real-time. Moreover, you may also provide real-time 3D navigation facility to drivers so that they find and traverse the most optimized route.

Google announced AR Maps earlier this year and launched what it calls Live View. This feature in Google Maps, still in its testing phases, is set to make widespread adoption in 2020.

Apart from enhancing driving experience, augmented reality technology is also enabling truck drivers to repair minor faults. The combination of wearable gadgets mainly AR glasses enables drivers to find the fault lines and take corrective measures.

Many logistics operators are starting to offer a selection of these AR features. DHL shares some of the use cases of augmented reality and wearable technology in logistics in this brief video.

Transportation industry has over 13.3 million employees in the US due to the repetitive jobs. Utilizing extended reality technologies effectively can save a huge volume of costs. Some glimpses from DHL indicate that businesses employing AR would make huge gains in 2020.

Entertainment app development

Entertainment app Genres and their development

Smartphone apps are gaining an incredible reception as the number of users of smart devices is increasing significantly. Meanwhile, the app owners are also capitalizing on this growth by providing addictive apps to users. The interest in entertainment app development is growing by leaps and bounds because these kinds of apps tend to generate far more revenues than others.

Entertainment is a vast app genre. It is unwise – at least currently – to offer an app with all types of entertainment features.

Entrepreneurs should consider following kinds of entertainment apps.

Music Player

Despite the availability of thousands of music player apps at app stores, there is always a room for newer ones. The reason is the fact that there is no shortage of ideas. Entrepreneurs, music lovers, and App developers keep on devising and implementing innovative features.

The existing apps are still unable to cope with the massive demand. To expand their profits, the owners of top apps place subscription costs. These costs increase with time.

A new music app can make gains in an incredibly short time by offering free download and subscription. Although the profit margin is small for the initial months, yet the app will return significantly in the long run.

Spotify and SoundCloud are undeniably two of the best music apps. Spotify allows users to maintain playlists while SoundCloud provides the opportunity to listen to songs online.

One of the innovative features not successfully implemented is the real-time shared music platform. This feature would provide the ability to two or more app users to listen the same song simultaneously. The users need not be present at the same geographical location.

Downloading mp3 songs is often a tiresome task because most of the existing apps are overly complicated. Inefficient use of ads annoys the users and eventually pushes them to delete the app. Thus, you may help users eliminate these issues.

Video Subscription On-demand (VSoD)

Unlike music apps which are around before existence of smartphones, VSoD is relatively newer concept. The users subscribe to the genre or publishers so that they can instantly watch the videos of their choice.

Moreover, the users can choose from a range of packages depending on the services from provider. Top subscription apps allow pausing, rewinding, and many other features. Users can access live streaming of events, drama series, and movies apart from other options.

The arrival of VSoD has almost disrupted the traditional DVD and Blu-ray industry. Following graph shows this decline and the corresponding rise of VSoD. Note that this chart depicts the results between 2008 and 2015. The subsequent years demonstrate a further rise in VSoD adoption.

Hulu and Amazon are two of the top video subscription providers. Statista reports that the number of global users will increase by 45% to reach 411 million in 2022.

Since smartphones provide the utmost portability, most of these users will be using mobiles for the purpose.

AR and VR Games

Augmented and virtual reality apps are making impressive penetration in every kind of apps. However, the gaming industry appears to be the primary stakeholder.

Currently, the AR and VR gaming industry is growing at an enormous CAGR of over 152%. Reuters report from 2017 projects that the AR gaming market will reach over $284 billion by 2023. This explains the intention of every other mobile app development company to hire the experts of AR.

The arrival of ARCore and ARKit has remarkably catalyzed the development of gaming. Unlike V, the users no longer require expensive headsets for AR apps. They can experience AR in smartphones without a headset. Nevertheless, headsets enhance the experience.

The game development engines including Unity and Unreal Engine 4 are capacitating the developers with unbelievable features. Pokémon GO is one example powered by the Unity engine. This game from Niantic alone earned over $2.3 billion after releasing less than three years back.

Moreover, games are not the only use cases for AR to provide entertainment. You can also provide, for instance, an app which shares the names of stars and planets when smartphone camera points toward the sky.

Conventional Small-Sized Games

The complicated and often large space consuming games are not the only ones that attract massive number of users. Since the advent of smartphone, the probability of small-sized games to get more downloads is higher than otherwise.

Flappy Bird provides one of the most remarkable cases. The app released in 2013 consumes less than 1MB of disk space. However, it achieved millions of downloads at both Android and iOS platforms since its introduction.

Dr. Driving presents another case. With only 9.9MB, the app managed to attain over 100 million distinct users.

Usually, an entertainment app development company provides the services of building lighter apps. The development of these small-sized gaming apps carries only a little risk in case of failure. The app owner will not lose significant amount of money because they would not have invested much.

The fact that users expect freemium model is the reason for success of light-weight gaming apps. Most of the smartphone users belong to middle socioeconomic classes and tend not to pay for apps. Thus, less complicated game can be a blessing rather than bane for your business.

Social Media

Social media apps are coming out in numbers every day. The developers know that these kinds of entertainment apps penetrate quickly among smartphone users.

However, only a small fraction of these apps manage to reach at least ten thousand downloads. Most of them cannot even hit a thousand downloads mark.

Some of the top reasons for failure include ineffective marketing, inefficiency of app performance, and lack of innovation. Fortunately, many ideas still await an appropriate implementation. Selection of a company with productive mobile app development services prevents the former two causes of failure.

iOS app trends

Notable iOS App Trends for Startups and Established Businesses

In 2018, iOS app owners earned $34 billion collectively – an impressive 28% more than what they made in 2017. In the holiday season alone, the in-app purchases and subscriptions reached $1.22 billion. Moreover, research forecasts that subscriptions will be generating 20% of iOS app revenue by 2021.

This significant growth in earning volume for owners is a telltale sign for entrepreneurs to invest in this sector. Many business aspirants are either facing a deficit of ideas or unsure about the effectiveness of their idea.

In one of the previous articles, we shared iOS app development trends for 2019 including notable tools and languages. This article shares iOS app trends with occasional success stories and industrial insights to assist the investors with appropriate choice.

Following iOS app trends will dominate in 2019 and beyond.

Core ML 2 and Artificial Intelligence

This SDK is a remarkable addition allowing developers to train machine learning models. Core ML 2 eliminates most of the performance glitches in its first version – Core ML. This second version also ensures a speed enhancement of up to 30% relative to the inaugural version.

One of the most notable components of Core ML 2 is Create ML – the framework which facilitates machine learning modeling. This framework significantly reduces the number of pictures required to train a system for object recognition. Besides, the training time is also reduced considerably.

Core ML 2 allows the developers to enable software with language recognition ability. There is an entire framework called Natural Language to achieve this feat.

Besides Create ML and Natural Language, Core ML 2 also offers Vision framework. This is a computer vision framework which enables the detection, recognition, and classification of objects.

Thus, app investors can enable their apps to perform a range of intelligent functions.

Augmented Reality Apps with ARKit

ARKit, primarily released with iOS 11, is a framework to build augmented reality apps. iOS games account for the highest revenue generating source. Statista reveals the share of games in app store categories at around 25% followed by business apps at 9.7%. Pokémon GO is an AR game and remained one of the most trending iOS apps.

ARKit 2 is a significantly improved version with many new options including real-time experience by multiple users. Now, the apps are able to detect 3D objects and estimate their size. It is also able to track 2D images.

The ability to scale 3D objects is a landmark achievement. It enables the developers to model objects in a 3D space. Among other industries, this feature is vital for interior design sector and hence features among iOS app trends.

One of the apps featured in AR category at CES 2019 Best of Innovation Awards demonstrated the significance of ARKit in interior design. LetsPlott allows users to virtually place a sofa in a room to determine its appearance. This app also enables users to change colors of object and surrounding walls.

On-demand Services

On-demand services are now expanding more rapidly than ever. Since these services facilitate consumers by reaching their doorstep, more users are turning toward on-demand apps from traditional service providers.

On-demand businesses are among the ones with the highest ROI. In the past ten years, most of the startup unicorns belong to the on-demand sector.

This sector is disrupting many traditional businesses including taxi services and brick and mortar stores. Most of these businesses are evolving into their on-demand parallels.

The success of on-demand industries follows from the fact that it saves incredible amount of time and money of consumers. For instance, a passenger had to look for a taxi by walking miles around. There is no way for traditional taxi drivers and passengers to “see” each other.

However, on-demand taxi services facilitated the riders by booking a taxi ride through a few smartphone clicks. They also enabled consumers and taxi agents to find locations of each other by mutual consent.

Similarly, other on-demand industries also facilitate consumers and ensure cosmic returns for app owners. Healthcare, logistics and transportation, food delivery, and beauty and wellness are some of the other on-demand areas.

HomeKit for IoT

Although HomeKit is around since iOS 8, yet the analysts forecast an overwhelming utilization of this framework in 2019. HomeKit allows homeowners to control electrical appliances through smartphone apps.

Every app using HomeKit requires IoT devices having sensors to receive commands from app. For instance, an apartment resident can control room temperature or light switches by giving typed or voice commands.

Such IoT devices do not require a separate app each. Instead, developers can integrate the functioning of each device in a single app. Thus, HomeKit is one of the top iOS app trends.

While appliance control is one instance, app owners can also use HomeKit for data transfer. Initially, the developers rarely used this framework for data transfer in the wake of data breach apprehensions. However, Apple introduced multiple encryption schemes which encouraged developers.

Enterprise Apps

Strategy Analytics predicts the enterprise app market to reach $128 billion by2022. Considering the trends of past two years, one can find out that iOS enterprise apps will feature following capabilities.

Integrated apps: These systems allow viewing performance analytics and sharing data all in one enterprise level apps. The use cases increase as per the requirement of business. Nevertheless, such apps facilitate big time by accessing everything in one small portable place.

Chatbots: Bots are great source to release workload from employees to intelligent machines.

Workflow Management: The iOS development community over the years has matured to allow business leaders to manage workflows through purpose-built apps.

The Bottom Line

Despite the fact that Android has almost four times as many users as iPhone, the iOS app owners’ revenue is significantly greater. The best iPhone apps for 2019 in terms of revenue and users will most likely belong to the above categories. Entrepreneurs should act now to become one of the top app owners of the year.
