Ever since the launch of iPhone back in 2007 by Tim Cook, Apple has been setting up new standards for the mobile devices. From touch screen to camera and what not- the advent of iPhone is considered to be a big turning point in the field of technology. This year’s annual convention was no different.
WWDC 2019 recently summed up with some huge announcements for the iOS device owners. While the new version adds up a few features that we had been longing for long, there were more surprises to be revealed. Held at McEnery Convention Centre in California, thousands of developers across the globe had an open-end interaction with the Apple Engineers, their foresightedness and their future goals for more customer-eccentric technologies.
The new updates with iOS 13 have not only elated the immediate user base but also the ios App developers from every corner of the Globe. They now have new demands to work on, new gaps to fill in and everything needs to be done in a more future-oriented approach. It is easier said than done, as every new OS update brings up new challenges for the app development agencies.
In this article, we will learn the two major features introduced in iOS 13 and how the iOS app developers can make the best out of them.
Needless to say this, but Dark Mode is something Mobile users have been asking for a long time. And who could have come with a solution, if not iOS? iOS 13 now comes with a dark mode where users can access their mobile for longer hours without straining their eyes much.
Post to lights-out, most people prefer to switch to their “me-time”, which primarily includes a brief overlook of their profiles on social media channels like Facebook, Instagram or mildly entertaining stuff from Youtube. In fact, this “brief me-time” often extends for hours until we actually doze off. Deep down, we all regret this being an ill-habit one needs to get rid of, as it harms our vision to the core; but somehow we still continue with the same.
The plus point of this nighttime browsing: a person is well relaxed and looks out for more comforting luxuries in his real life surroundings. With the introduction of dark mode in your app, there are huge chances that he might click one of your advertisements at the top, on his will, and might end up paying for it.
However, we are still missing out those potential customers who are too concerned about their eyes. The Dark Mode comes to your help. The other half of your customers who had long been avoiding a late-night browse might find it more soothing this time onwards. Chances are, your e-Commerce store might show more sales.
AR had never been new for iOS users. The camera-based technology was introduced to the iPhone users back in 2008. Ever since then, the technology has found itself as a base for a few high-end games and photography applications.
The technology allows you to visualize 3-D movable animated figures through your mobile camera in the real-time. A user can create a video that is a hybrid version of real-world objects with the custom animations.
In recent times, the AR has raised its roleplay from a mere entertainer to a crucial piece. E-Commerce is particularly making good benefits by letting users with better customer experience. The users can take a 3-D glance of their ordered product and their compatibility with related accessories from the real world.
iOS app developers need to focus on this aspect if their subject somehow connects the virtual world to the real. iOS13 enables a more user-eccentric feature named “People Occlusion” that measures the movement of the user. ARKit 3 empowers the AR feature on the iOS platform that helps create a smoother AR experience along with a high-level Augmented Reality Framework.
Developers can utilize AR features in their app using SDK files available at the developers Apple website.
Wrapping it up
E-Commerce is often a highly unpredictable platform where, locking down a customer is nearly impossible. It keeps changing with time, the trends, the immediate weather and the locality of the user. However, as an e-commerce business owner, you can surely let your users experience the beauty of an interactive and reliable application.
The new technologies can give you an extra touch to your exclusive e-Commerce Application allowing you to convert more users over the course of the time.
