Finally, the most awaited mobile operating system iOS 11 has been released that boasts with a comprehensive range of features for your iPhone and iPad. Every year, the company launches a new mobile operating system along with new tools for developers and new applications for its users.
This time, Apple has launched some of the advanced tools that will give users a new and rich experience while using their device. Moreover, iOS developers can also try a lot of new things to make iOS applications better.
The all-new iOS 11 comes with an improved HomeKit, ARKit for developers, and Core ML that will allow developers to make reality applications and much more.
Let’s have a look at the top iOS 11 tools that can be used to make more advanced applications:
Core ML – Allow Integrating Trained Machine Learning Models into Your App
One of the most powerful tools ‘Core ML’ is a software framework that launched by Apple to allow professional iOS app developers to deploy and work with trained machine learning models in applications on all of Apple’s platforms, including MacOS, iOS, TvOS, and WatchOS.
The most attention grabber announcement at WWDC was Core ML, and it is mainly planned for developers from having to develop all the platform-level plumbing themselves for deploying a model, offering predictions from it and handling any extraordinary conditions which might arise.
However, it is the most arguably best framework for developers to use in their applications. It will enable them to develop more intelligent applications with machine learning. With just a few lines of code, developers can develop applications with a lot of new features.
In addition to this, the all-new Core ML supports wide and deep learning with 30+ layer types; however, it is also standard models like tree ensembles and SVMs. It takes advantage of your CPU and GPU to bring maximum efficiency as it is developed on low-level technologies.
Depth Map API – Enable Developers to Add More Depth Filters
When it comes to depth Map API, it is the all new feature for the camera of iPhones and iPad. The camera has been updated with video and image compression. And as for the depth map API, this new feature for Portrait Mode enables professional iOS app developers to make new and custom depth filters.
ARKit – Developers Can Make Unparalleled AR Apps
Another most powerful tool that Apple has launched for developers is ARKit that enables them to easily develop supreme augmented reality experiences for iPhone and iPad. This new framework takes the applications beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in completely new ways by combining digital objects and information with the environment across you.
With this new framework, developers can create new and useful applications making use of camera, processors and motion sensors of your Apple device, whether it is iPhone or iPad. Even, a lot of Augmented Reality applications using ARKit have been developed; whether it is a game or any other application, ARKit will revolutionize the industry.
Minecraft, an AR application that developed using ARKit is the best example of this new framework. This application will allow you to block around your real-world environment. One another example of ARKit is Edmunds that is a careful research and buying the application. Using this app, you can put a life-sized car in the room in front of you.
MusicKit – Adding Music to Apps Becomes Much Easier
MusicKit is another biggest tool for iOS programmers and users. It will enable them to play Apple Music and their local music library natively from their applications and games. Whenever a user gives permission to their Apple Music account, your application can make playlists, add songs to the library and play enormous songs in the Apple Music catalogue. If your application is detecting that the user is not yet an Apple Music member, you can deliver a trial from within your application.
HomeKit – Made It Flexible to a wider variety of Circumstances
From quite some time now, HomeKit is the part of the Apple store; however, with every new iOS, the company is updating the HomeKit. This time also, the company has updated the HomeKit with some of the new and interesting changes.
Some of the new product types that include sprinklers and faucets. These two enabled HomeKit to support 16+ product types like window shades, garage doors, sensors, air conditioners, thermostats, fans, cameras and more.
Still, we need to wait for big appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, etc. However, sprinkles and Faucets can enable developers to integrate with products, which initiate water flow. For developers, setting up HomeKit accessories is a lot easier.
These are the top new iOS 11 tools for the iOS app developer. Using these tools, you can develop iOS apps more intelligent. Now, users can get more rich experience with their device as they can have their own machine learning, Augmented Reality and other technology based-applications.
No matter what your requirements are, you can discuss it with any professional iOS app development company, who have already started experimenting with iOS 11 platform and its latest tools. Moreover, you can also upgrade your already developed application to iOS 11 so that your customers do not face any problem while using your app.
