iOS 12 is now available: How to update, best new iPhone and Xcode 10 features and more

Apple officially announced that Sept. 17 is the day iOS 12 will launch and the update.This is the operating system that will power your iPhone,iPad,and iPod Touch.
The new operating system is also the default on Apple’s new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Apple has doubled down on their performance, working from top to bottom to make iPhones and iPads faster and more responsive.

Apple’s performance improvements, apps launch faster, the keyboard appears faster, and the Camera is quicker to open. Apple has also optimized the system when it’s under load, making iOS devices faster when you need performance the most.
iOS 12, there is a list of new features in the update that makes this an impressive new version of iOS.

Features :-
Do Not Disturb: Do Not Disturb in iOS 12 has been enhanced in several ways. First of all, there’s a new Bedtime mode that’s designed to hide all of your incoming notifications at nighttime, so all you see is the time and date.

Notifications: Apple has also added notification grouping in iOS 12, a highly desired feature that cleans up the Lock Screen by grouping incoming notifications by app, topic, and more, with the ability to tap on a notification group to see individual notifications.

You can also clear notifications by group, which is a useful feature for managing long lists of notifications.

App Limits and Downtime: For iPhone and iPad users if who want active reminders to spend less time within a particular app, Apple has implemented App Limits.it’s a useful feature who need a little help managing their time. You can set a time limit on an app category, such as games, and when you’ve spent the specified amount of time using that app category, your iOS device will send you a notification letting you know that it’s time to move on to something else.When activated, Downtime allows access only to phone calls apps that you choose.

Animoji and Memoji: iOS 12 brings new Animoji features like tongue detection and better face tracking.With tongue detection, Animoji can now stick out a tongue, and there’s also an option for detecting a wink. There are also new Animoji options, including Ghost, Koala, Tiger, and T-Rex, plus an all new customizable Animoji experience called Memoji. With Memoji, you can make a personalized Animoji in the Messages app that looks just like you using a deep set of customization options.

You can choose skin color, hair color, hair style, eye color, eyebrows, nose, features like freckles and facial hair, accessories, and headwear.There’s no limit on the number of Memoji you’re able to create, so you can add multiples for every look you want to express.

As mentioned below, Memoji and Animoji can be used in both Messages and FaceTime in iOS 12.
App Improvements:
MESSAGES
GROUP FACETIME
PHOTOS
APPLE NEWS
STOCKS
VOICE MEMOS
APPLE BOOKS
CAMERA
CARPLAY
APPLE MUSIC
MEASURE
MAPS
Privacy, Security and Safety Enhancements

AUTOMATIC STRONG PASSWORDS: In iOS 12, your iPhone and iPad automatically suggest strong, unique passwords for each and every website and app where you need to create a login. All of these passwords are stored on your iOS device, and you can even ask Siri to open up your list of passwords, which are synced across your devices. Password management apps like 1Password will also be able to provide passwords for websites and apps through a new Password AutoFill extension that’s available to developers.

Password Auditing: Apple now lets you know if you’ve used a password that’s too weak or has been used across multiple sites with password auditing features. iOS devices flag inadequate passwords and provide you with an option to go right to the site in question to update it with something more secure.

Security Code Autofill: Many apps and services offer two-factor authentication, requiring a code texted to your phone number. In iOS 12, Apple detects these incoming security codes from the Messages app and offers it as an AutoFill option so you don’t need to leave the login screen to access the code.

ARKit 2: iOS 12, new features and improvements make ARKit more powerful than ever.This new file format, which is optimized for sharing while retaining 3D graphics and animations, is able to work across the iOS 12 operating system. What this means is that you can now see augmented reality assets in Safari, Messages, Mail, and more.ARKit 2.0 introduces improvements that include better face tracking, realistic rendering, 3D object detection, persistent experiences, and shared experiences.These last two additions make the biggest change in AR apps.

Hidden Features:
Contactless Student ID Cards
iPhone X App Switcher
Siri Voices
Multiple Faces in Face ID
Face ID Rescanning
Screen Time Widget
Automatic Updates
Messages Shortcuts
New iPad Gestures etc.

Compatible Devices: iOS 12 is compatible with all devices that are able to run iOS 11.

Basic Methods :-
AgoraRtcEngineKit is the basic interface class of the Agora Native SDK. Creating an AgoraRtcEngineKit object and then calling the methods of this object enables the use of the Agora Native SDK’s communication functionality.

+(instancetype _Nonnull)sharedEngineWithAppId:(NSString * _Nonnull)appId delegate:(id _Nullable)delegate;

This method initializes the AgoraRtcEngineKit class as a singleton instance. Call this method to initialize the service before using AgoraRtcEngineKit.

The SDK uses Delegate to inform the application on engine runtime events. All methods defined in Delegate are optional implementation methods.

  • (int)setChannelProfile:(AgoraChannelProfile)profile;
  • (int)enableAudio;
  • (int)disableAudio;

Join a Channel (joinChannelByToken)

  • (int)joinChannelByToken:(NSString * _Nullable)token
    channelId:(NSString * _Nonnull)channelId
    info:(NSString * _Nullable)info
    uid:(NSUInteger)uid
    joinSuccess:(void(^ _Nullable)(NSString * _Nonnull channel, NSUInteger uid, NSInteger elapsed))joinSuccessBlock;

Video call
Basic Methods: AgoraRtcEngineKit is the basic interface class of the Agora Native SDK. Creating an AgoraRtcEngineKit object and then calling the methods of this object enables the use of Agora Native SDK’s communication functionality.

Join a Channel (joinChannelByToken)

  • (int)joinChannelByToken:(NSString * _Nullable)token
    channelId:(NSString * _Nonnull)channelId
    info:(NSString * _Nullable)info
    uid:(NSUInteger)uid
    joinSuccess:(void(^ _Nullable)(NSString * _Nonnull channel, NSUInteger uid, NSInteger elapsed))joinSuccessBlock;

Users in the same channel can talk to each other; and multiple users in the same channel can start a group chat. Users using different App IDs cannot call each other.
Once in a call, the user must call the leaveChannel method to exit the current call before entering another channel. This method is called asynchronously; therefore, it can be called in the main user interface thread.

Leave a Channel (leaveChannel)

  • (int)leaveChannel:(void(^ _Nullable)(AgoraChannelStats * _Nonnull stat))leaveChannelBlock;

This method allows a user to leave a channel, such as hanging up or exiting a call. After joining a channel, the user must call the leaveChannel method to end the call before joining another one.

Enable the Video Mode (enableVideo)

  • (int)enableVideo;

Disable the Video Mode (disableVideo)

  • (int)disableVideo;
    Enable the Local Video (enableLocalVideo)
  • (int)enableLocalVideo:(BOOL)enabled;

Set the Local Video View (setupLocalVideo)

  • (int)setupLocalVideo:(AgoraRtcVideoCanvas * _Nullable)local;

Set the Remote Video View (setupRemoteVideo)

  • (int)setupRemoteVideo:(AgoraRtcVideoCanvas * _Nonnull)remote;

Interactive Broadcasting
Basic Methods :- AgoraRtcEngineKit is the basic interface class of Agora Native SDK. Creating an AgoraRtcEngineKit object and then calling the methods of this object enables the use of Agora Native SDK’s communication functionality.
Initialize (sharedEngineWithAppId)

  • (instancetype _Nonnull)sharedEngineWithAppId:(NSString * _Nonnull)appId
    delegate:(id _Nullable)delegate;
    Set the Channel Profile (setChannelProfile)
  • (int)setChannelProfile:(AgoraChannelProfile)profile;

Set the User Role (setClientRole)

  • (int)setClientRole:(AgoraClientRole)role;

Enable the Audio Mode (enableAudio)

  • (int)enableAudio;
    Disable the Audio Mode (disableAudio)
  • (int)disableAudio;

Enable the Video Mode (enableVideo)

  • (int)enableVideo;

Disable the Video (disableVideo)

  • (int)disableVideo;

Enable the Local Video (enableLocalVideo)

  • (int)enableLocalVideo:(BOOL)enabled;
  • Set the Local Video View (setupLocalVideo)
  • (int)setupLocalVideo:(AgoraRtcVideoCanvas * _Nullable)local;

This method configures the video display settings on local machine. The application calls this method to bind with the video window (view) of local video streams and configure the video display settings.
Call this method after initialization to configure the local video display settings before entering a channel.

After leaving the channel, the bind is still valid, which means the window still displays. To unbind the view, set the view value to NIL when calling setupLocalVideo.

12 Steps To Create A Successful Mobile App

You have always heard about the mobile app. But did you ever think what it takes to build a consistent mobile app. There is a systematic process going behind mobile app building process and that even we personally follow. Of course, the steps can vary from companies to companies. But, we have a detailed process in place with every single aspect of mobile app creation covered, so as to transform the imagination of our clients into a well-conceived Smartphone application. Let us look at the steps that we personally follow. Below you can find 12 steps to create a successful mobile application:

Step 1: Starting Things By Defining Client Goal
Idea is where everything starts from, initiating a project. Before going into the detailing stuff, we have the mission and purpose defined by discussing extensively with clients. What the end product should look like? What things in end product should appeal to all? What user problems will be resolved by the product? How an end user life is going to enhance by using the product? When all these questions are rightfully answered, only then we move on to our next phase.

Step 2: It Is Time Now To Sketch
Sketches lay the base foundation of the app that is going to take shape in future. This is the step wherein we visually conceptualize the app in mind using an approximate structure or layout. With a rough sketch in hand, the team is capable of understanding in what direction to move ahead. These sketches act as a good reference for our next project phase.

Step 3: Doing A Thorough Research Before Hand
Sketches are ready. However, still there a number of thing to address we need to know such as what your competitor apps are doing, what has inspired us for your app design, getting detailed information on the technical information surrounding the app, and finally knowing the ways to monetize through various app promotion methods.

Step 4: Framing A Wireframe And Devising Storyboard
So, you know what it is? We are talking about wire framing. This is where the product prototypes or mockups are created. Using a number of useful tools online with the likes of HotGloo, Moqups, and Balsamiq, we will have the right wireframes and storyboard in place, helping you in establishing a connection between screens, as well as app letting users grasp the app navigation with ease.

Step 5: Setting The Right Back End For Your App
Since the storyboard and wireframes are ready, it is time now to frame the structure of the backend. Have a sketch ready in place showcasing data diagrams, APIs, and servers. These acts as a nice reference, helping developers join the project from in between, with a self explanatory diagram explaining everything.

Step 6: Testing Prototype In Detail
We have our test group in place giving feedback regarding testing the wireframes. We give them access to have a test run of the app, presenting with their views on the same. Taking their honest feedback, we identify flaws within the beta product, and take necessary actions on incorporating well defined UI/UX in place.

Step 7: Signing Up For Developer Accounts At App Marketplaces
This is the right time for us to start signing up for developer accounts at various places. Since the approval process takes a number of days, we ensure that we already have them in hand, and not keeping things for last minute.

Step 8: Designing Actual Skins For An App
“Skins” in simple terms are the actual app screens required in the app. As experienced designers, we have the ability to build high resolution User Interfaces (UI) that gives an overall impact with a memorable User Experience (UX).

Step 9: Developing Things By Handling The Coding Part
After we have finalized your app screens in terms of design, it is time now to code things for bringing the working of an app alive. It is the code that makes this possible. It is the coding part due to which the app is able to deliver features or functionalities, as if having an intelligence of its own. Framer and Solidify are two wonderful apps helping us a great deal in testing a client app. Here in, the overall look and feel are reinstated, since this is the stage wherein development meets design.

Step 10: Keep Revising The Product Until Perfection
Once we have tested the design, and have feedback regarding the same, we have it revised through an iterative process, wherein we will constantly polish the product until and unless it is we have a perfect app in place sufficing all the client requirements. We will still change UI/UX design if you want, right from the back end.

Step 11: Working On Every Minute Details Possible While Testing
While building we ensure to have a constant iterations of the app while testing every single perspective in a live environment. Using a tool like TestFlight, we have our own alpha and beta testers in place for downloading and testing multiple times. This is the actual last step in the process before deploying the product.

Step 12: Delivery Of The End Product To The Clients
App marketplaces have lot different policies, especially when it comes to publishing an app. No matter whether dealing with iOS or Android, the review process is different, and that is what we have mastered over the years. There is no time frame associated with the approval process, but on an average you can expect a week to hear things out. Hence, we ensure that to submit app to PreApps marketplace wherein we will receive early feedback from early adopters. Once we do it, we will have the app submitted to actual marketplaces on behalf of our clients, which marks our project completion.

Native(Android/iOS) vs Ionic vs React Native

Dwelling in today’s Mobile application development world, the times have come when the development is slowly and gradually tending towards the cross-platform or becoming platform-independent. Though Mobile application development on the respective IDEs (Integrated Development Environment) along with respective coding languages (i.e. Swift/Objective-C for iOS and Java/Kotlin for Android) involved, is a traditional approach, yet in past few years, many organizations have stepped up to give a tough competition to the Native Development.

With the evolution of Mobile cross-platform/hybrid development, the re usability, readability and the length of code have been the major areas of advancements into the mobile application development.

Few of the platforms, who have shown amazing advancements into cross-platform development are:
i) React Native
ii) IONIC (AngularJS, Apache Cordova)
iv) Phonegap

Today, we are going to look into IONIC, React Native & Native app development platform.

Native Development- Knowing the fact that, developing a mobile application for a specific mobile OS using Native development approach is comparably the best amongst all the different approaches. Native app development is a standard in the mobile industry. They are written specifically for mobile operating systems such as iOS and Android and work best for these platforms.

Advantages of Native –

i) Since Native Application work with the built in features of the Device, they make the most use of the device’s native functionalists, to perform better and faster with the best of the compatibility with the hardware.

ii) Native Applications usually get a full support from their respective App Stores, including reports of the anonymous usages of the end users.

iii) Android and iOS apps offer a natural experience for their users by following specific UI standards shared by apps developed for these platforms. No dependency on a third party Javascript Libraries or Plugins.

iv) Native apps work out better for developers, who are provided the SDK and all other tools to create the app with much more ease.

v) Unlike Hybrid Applications, Native Applications doesn’t always require an Internet Connection to run on the devices, which is one of the strongest reason, why Native Applications are preferred over Hybrid Applications. Many users might also find themselves in places where they might not have internet connectivity, thus Native Applications hold an upper hand than Hybrid Applications.

Disadvantages of Native –

i) Despite the facts that, Native Applications does provide a better interface and better user experience than Hybrid Applications, Native Development does require a much higher cost and resources as compared to Hybrid Applications.

ii) Higher cost and time involved in maintenance, since there is no common code for multiple platforms, thus the maintenance multiples for individual platforms accordingly.

iii) A bigger team is required in Native application development due to the Platform Dependent Development System(separate code for separate platform).

IONIC Development- Ionic is a complete open-source SDK for the hybrid mobile application and Web development built on the top of Angular JS and Apache Cordova found back by Drift Co. in 2013. Ionic incorporates basic Web UI controlling languages including HTML5, Typescript and Sass, facilitating both the Web and Mobile Developers to develop agile models using the RAD(Rapid Application Development) methodologies, for their respective platforms.

Advantages of Ionic –

i) Code Reusability for every platform like Android, iOS, Windows.

ii) Use of well-known web technologies, which one probably will employ if one need to develop a server-side of the system.

iii) Envelopment by Phonegap and Cordova which makes the availability of a vast variety of plugins like Sensors, Push Notifications, Contacts and GPS.

iv) It helps in creating default mobile app UI functionalities easily and efficiently.

v) Availability of Material Design similar to Native.

Disadvantages of Ionic –

i) Unlike native applications, applications built using ionic, with Web UI controls are rendered using the device’s Webview (an inbuilt browser component in every mobile OS), which degrades the performance in terms of compilation and rendering.

ii) Android is a very fragmented platform, and there are still very old versions of Android out in the world on which Ionic doesn’t perform well.

iii) Plugin for everything isn’t available unlike Native.

iv) Ionic isn’t preferable for hefty development like 3D graphics design or animation, reason being laggy in composure as compared to Native.

React Native Development- React Native is a framework created by Facebook to enable a smooth and easy cross-platform mobile development. It is a Javascript framework for rendering mobile application in iOS and Android. React is a Facebook’s Javascript library for building user interfaces which target mobile platforms. Very much like Native(iOS and Android), React Native uses the same fundamental UI building blocks like regular iOS and Android apps. It just puts those building blocks together using JavaScript and React. One must not confuse React Native with Hybrid Framework, though it is a cross-platform framework, with same (or rather better) performance as Native Applications.

Advantages of React Native –

i) Built upon cross-platform development environment approach, React Native developers need to not write the code in ways for multiple platforms. A unique code is capable of running the application in multiple OSs i.e. Android and iOS.

ii) The developers tool that React Native brings along includes one of the best feature, called “HOT RELOADING”, which facilitates the developers not to wait much longer for the program to go compile, build and run, Hot Reloading just reflects the changes instantly on the device as soon as the code is saved.

iii) React Native does provide an equivalent or rather better performance(in few areas) than Native Application because it is just another approach of building Native Applications using an alternative approach.

iv) React Native Development involves a smaller team as compared to Native Application Development (i.e. iOS Development Team and Android Development Team).

v) In native development, it is necessary to create a sequence of actions in the application, whereas React Native employs declarative programming in which such an order of implementing an action is obsolete. As a result, it is much easier to detect bugs on the paths a developer can take.

Disadvantages of React Native –

i) Despite the fact that react native uses the same UI controls with a different development approach as Native, still it does not provide a full-fledged similar look and feel with same smoothness as Native.

ii) Incorporating React Native Native for your development Environment makes you completely dependant on Facebook Libraries, bound to a BSD license. So if in future, Google or Apple releases an update for the Android and iOS Libraries, we have to stay dependant on Facebook to provide us the similar patches of update to be incorporated.

iii) Despite of its Maturity, React Native still lacks few of the custom modules as compared to Native Development.
