Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it worth developing a mobile app for the iOS?

System Stability

Apple’s system is known for its stability. The iOS platform crashes rarely, the battery doesn’t disappear in a moment, and, usually, it works the same on each phone, even if they have different screen sizes or ages. Thanks to this, iOS app development is faster because bugs caused by the system are less likely. Moreover, the user experience from using the app is better when the latter just works.

Fast adoption

Every year, Apple pushes a new major system update to its users and it is astonishing how fast it lands on most of the devices. As the Apple statistics say, after one quarter from the release of iOS 13, nearly 80% of the devices run the newest system.

This helps app development because every system version sometimes needs additional support. Usually, when the development of the iOS app starts, both the current and previous versions of the system are supported, which covers about 95% of all iOS users.

Features out-of-the-box

iOS is a system rich in many features, using not only software but also hardware. Even though most of the apps show just content from the server, it is usually easy to add more powerful and unconventional elements, like AR support or taking images with deep sense.

There are also features which just make development faster, like multiple tool libraries that help with image processing, cryptography, or even Machine Learning. The system also provides its own synchronization system. So, even if the user changes their phone, the app stays the same thanks to iCloud backup and synchronization.

Security & privacy

In the last couple of years, Apple has worked hard to show that the privacy of users is a top-level priority. iOS increases privacy protection each year by controlling access to the device’s sensors and providing a safe place for data, stored only on the device. This level of control might be sometimes oppressive and makes some of the features hard to develop but, thanks to this, users trust the apps installed on their system.

How much does it cost to develop an iOS mobile app?

In our experience, the best way to talk about the cost of iOS app development is by thinking about it in terms of complexity. And so:

  • Basic iOS applications cost around $29,500.
  • Medium-complexity iOS applications will range from $29,500-$50,500
  • Complex iOS applications that require building a complicated architecture and multiple integrations or meeting high-security demand cost even more than $50,000

This rough estimate can serve as your starting point in understanding how much it really costs to develop an iOS app. Read an in-depth analysis of mobile app development cost in 2020.

I want to keep my iOS app idea confidential. Will you sign an NDA with me? 

Yes, we will always sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) when a client wants it. We can do it at the very beginning before we even discuss your iOS project in any detail, or at another stage of the process. It’s completely up to you.

Do I have ownership regarding the code of my iOS application? 

Yes, you are the owner of the Intellectual Property rights, including the code, at all times.

What are some of the top iOS applications developed by you?

See more apps in our portfolio.

Do you have any iOS apps in your portfolio similar to my concept?

We have completed over 130 mobile & web projects and we have strong background in developing iOS applications from various categories, including mCommerce, IoT, MedTech, FinTechmaps & transport, lifestyle, and digital transformation, amongst others.

The knowledge and experience gained in numerous industries for nearly 10 years mean that we are able to deal with the development of any type of iOS app. Check out our portfolio for more examples.

How does the design and development process work?

There are 7 crucial stages of the iOS app development process from a business point of view:

  1. Clarifying the Vision
  2. Choosing a Partner
  3. Wireframes & Design
  4. Project Kick-off & Setup
  5. App Development
  6. Release Preparation
  7. App Maintenance

Read more about every stage in our guide through the iOS app development process.

Will you assist me to upload my iOS app on the Apple Store? How?

Yes, of course. We will upload your iOS app onto Apple Store. It is also a part of our iOS app development process. We will also guide you through the app setup on the store regarding marketing materials, descriptions, and legacy issues.

Do you provide app maintenance or just development?

Yes, we also do maintenance. iOS app development is just a start. During the iOS app maintenance, the development team implements app monitoring tools (e.g. HockeyApp, Crashlytics, Google Analytics, Firebase) to every product we’ve delivered. Thanks to these tools, we can detect any crashes, follow the app’s statistics, and plan product enhancements.

What if I need to change or modify my iOS app after launch?

We invite you to cooperate with us with ongoing iOS app maintenance. In this option, you can be sure that the team is available always when your project needs us.

If you do not decide on such maintenance, you can always contact us with a specific need, but whether we can help at that respective moment, depends on whether the team is available or their time is fully booked.

How many iOS developers do you have on board? 

We’re 100% office-based team of 70+ talented professionals, including around 20 iOS developers. However, our development team also consists of certified Scrum Masters, UX/UI designers, Quality Assurance Engineers, and Business Analysts.

With these experts on board, we are able to take the whole iOS app development process off of your shoulders, so you can focus on business.

Where is your iOS development team located?

Our team works in one office in Wroclaw, Poland, which is one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the world. Its location enables convenient and fast access from any city in the world. Read more about us.

How would you structure the team?

We adjust the team’s size according to your needs. A typical development team consists of 1 Product Owner (from your side), 1 Scrum Master, 1 Quality Assurance Engineer, 2 iOS developers, 2 Android developers (if you want also an app for Android platform), and 1 Business Analyst (optional).

Is it possible, at some point, to hand the code over to another team?

Yes. The code we create is very readable, well documented, and structured, which makes it easy to transfer your iOS project to another team if needed.

Do you have flexible hiring models? 

You work with us on a Time & Materials basis. The total cost of a T&M project depends on the actual effort made towards the development.

In this model, you pay for the actual time the team spends on the development of specific tasks. You are in charge of the project’s scope and set priorities for the development team.

Why do we use a Time & Materials model? It ensures flexibility, a shorter time-to-market, and it allows for the Continuous Delivery of a software product. This approach ensures high-quality – your iOS app will be tested at every stage of development. Read more about Time & Materials vs Fixed Price.

Will I be getting regular updates from you? 

Yes, of course. After every Sprint Review, you will get:

  • An app demo build (so you can check if the created app fits your expectations)
  • A detailed review of what’s been done
  • Information about how many hours the team worked on the project during the Sprint
  • Information about eventual difficulties solved or additional work that has been done

According to your preferences, you can take part in the Review meeting directly, or just get the above-mentioned information via e-mail.

What’s more, we use these good practices to ensure 100% transparency:

  • You have direct contact with every team member – through Slack, e-mail, video calls, during Scrum meetings or even live visits.
  • PO Guidance – as a Product Owner, will be supported in your role. We will introduce you to the necessary tools for monitoring the budget and maximizing the value delivered by the development team.
  • Jira Dashboard – the team will provide you with a presentation of the most important data about the project on transparent charts.
  • Tempo Timesheet – this is a Jira tracking tool. At any moment, you can check what the team is spending their time on.
  • Forecast & Change Management – we forecast the project budget, support you in monitoring it, and predict potential risks in order to prevent them.
  • Dropbox / Google – you have access to all materials collected in one place.
