iPhone data and market share
The iPhone is a smartphone created by Apple that uses Apple's iOS operating system. The first iPhone was sold in 2007 and since then, there is a new model released every year, or even more often. iPhones can increase their functionalities by downloading apps from the App Store. The Apple’s App Store has more than 2,200,000 apps available.
The first iPhone was a GSM phone. With the iPhone 3, the 3G arrived. iPhone 4 brought the virtual assistant, Siri. The iPhone 5 started the Lightning connector trend, while iPhone 7 brought water resistance. iPhone 8 introduced camera improvements and wireless charging, but the newest iPhone X was deemed as groundbreaking thanks to the Face ID (face recognition feature), and a lens that helps take better pictures in low light conditions.
In short, we could say that iPhone quickly turned into a true game-changer within the mobile world and helped Apple become one of the main tech leaders.Why you should develop an iPhone app
iPhone is probably the most popular smartphone worldwide, and iPhone users are incredibly loyal to new updates and very used to trying new apps available on the App Store.
Following the launch of the iPhone X, iPhone sold more than 77M iPhones devices during the first quarter of 2018. Although the market share is smaller than Android’s (Apple has about 12%), iPhone users have a higher financial status and hence are more likely to install paid apps and make in-app purchases.
According to the opinion of our iPhone developers, iPhone apps are easier to develop because there are not so many devices available and the restrictions are clear. For this reason, it’s also easier to predict errors in the development process and there are fewer lines to code.
However, as apps for iPhone are known for their high quality, Apple’s validation of mobile apps on the App Store is usually strict and thorough, which means that the process is more difficult than, for example, in Google’s Play Store.What app project owners can find on the AppFutura iPhone directory
