When developing an iOS app, you can either hire a team of developers who will be a part of your team or outsource app development to another company. Building an app in-house is a popular option among larger organisations that plan to make mobile a central element of their strategy. When building in-house, the advantage is that you have total control of the process, get results quickly, and enjoy its flexibility, since the scope or number of revisions are no longer a constraint.
Outsourcing development is an excellent option for smaller organisations or startup founders who simply can't afford the high setup costs that come with internal development teams. Outsourcing works for projects where time-to-market is crucial because it focuses on reducing the time between client brief and project start. Moreover, this model is less risky and makes sticking to a budget much easier.
By teaming up with a consultancy, you also gain access to extensive app expertise and a team with an established process, which helps deliver the app faster and more cost-effectively. App agencies provide their clients with end-to-end services - from the idea, through development and launch, to maintenance and support.

Objective-C is a long-standing programming language that was created by the Stepstone company in the early 1980s. It was released to the public in 1988, when Brad Cox and Tom Love published a book, “Object-Oriented Programming: An Evolutionary Approach”. In the late 1980s, Objective-C was licensed by NeXT Computer, Inc. to develop the NeXTStep frameworks and was eventually acquired by Apple. This is how it became the standard for many years in the area of iOS apps development.
Objective-C was created under the influence of two other programming languages: C and Smalltalk. This is why it has such a complicated, verbose syntax. It derives its object syntax from Smalltalk, while syntax for non-object-oriented operations is the same as in C. Objective-C uses dynamic typing and message passing. It also requires dividing classes into two code blocks: interface and implementation.
Swift is a relatively new programming language. Apple started working on Swift in 2010 and released it to the public in 2014. In 2015, Swift became open source. It abandons the Smalltalk and C heritage and has all the features that modern programming languages have: generics, optionals, type inference, and higher-order functions.
Before the release of iOS 12, if your app offered a specific category of service (e.g. messaging or payments), it could integrate Siri to let the user perform certain actions (intents) in response to spoken commands. It was cool, but Siri only recognized phrases defined by Apple, and you couldn’t create your own custom intent. With the introduction of iOS 12, Apple made it possible to create your own intents and also released Siri Shortcuts.
A Siri Shortcut, just as the name suggests, is a shortcut to an action in your app. These shortcuts are displayed as cards, which are the result of any Siri search that relates to your shortcut. Apple suggests only integrating Siri Shortcuts in your app for actions that users often perform. The Shortcuts application provides actions that can be performed by Siri, but you can create this series of actions as a single shortcut by yourself during application development.
When crafting the development process for your team or partnering with a software development company, it's a good idea to stick to battle-tested practices, such as agile project management. Agile development provides all stakeholders with means of contributing to the project, ensuring high collaboration between the client and the project team.
The transparency that comes as a part of agile development helps teams predict costs and schedule accurately to ensure predictable delivery. This kind of process is also very flexible, giving teams an opportunity to continually refine the product backlog and change priorities, improving the app's business value and quality.

Software for a personal robot that appeared on a TED stage
The Temi robot uses three senses: sight, touch, and hearing combined with an advanced AI technology to support people in their everyday lives. Through face recognition, object recognition, voice fingerprinting, emotion detection, and much more, Temi can perform an array of different tasks. This cutting-edge technology was built from scratch: hardware, design and software by three teams scattered around the world – in Israel, China, and Poland.
Netguru did the native development for 3 platforms: the robot’s operating system (Android-based), an iOS app, and an Android app.

You'll need this list of Key functionalities to make the first steps toward developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) that will help you test the validity of your idea on the market. Next, you need to choose the technology stack for your iOS app. It will impact other choices, such as the architecture or used frameworks.
You can develop an iOS app using different languages, like Swift and Objective-C. The features of a language can sound technical, but they have a huge impact on business aspects, primarily on the speed of development. App development in Swift is faster than in Objective-C. The usage of generics and higher-order functions results in cleaner, more reusable code
Each of these has different pros and cons. Swift is faster and safer than Objective-C. Supported by Apple, the Swift community is continually growing, whereas Objective-C is hard to learn and fewer developers are learning it nowadays. According to a 2017 StackOverflow Developers Survey, Swift is one of the most popular programming languages today, so you'll be able to find a team of experts easily.
