iOS 7 Causes App Developers A Heavy Workload

Sep 21 2013, 11:13am CDT | by

Since the conference took place way back in June, it is easy to think that the developers had plenty of time to prepare, but many teams considered it a short time period and had to be in a rush.

iOS 7 has finally arrived. Its coming represents the achievement of a major goal for Apple, and the end of a long time of grinding work for developers who rushed to have their apps ready in time. It was at the June Apple developer’s conference that many had first realized they would have to return to the drawing board. Now developers have turned their work to the pushing of their new releases.

Some had found it quite overwhelming to design and then redesign their apps in the same year, but many were excited about the challenge. The need for their additional workload came from all the new features and elements iOS 7 contains. Many of the old apps are barely compatible, creating the need for a major overhaul.

Since the conference took place way back in June, it is easy to think that the developers had plenty of time to prepare, but many teams considered it a short time period and had to be in a rush. The fact that the date iOS 7 would be made available remained unknown for quite some time only compounded their issues. In order to be ready on time, some had to overcome the temptation to build in response to every new iOS 7 feature.

Through the process, many developers became huge fans of iOS 7, readily embracing the new design. They like the new, cleaner design refreshing. Developers only had the beta version to work from, meaning they would also have to prepare for any changes Apple might make on certain features. For some, this meant backtracking many steps, staying steadily at work.

Many app users might not see major changes to some of the apps they use, but other app developers, in a desire to fit in seamlessly with iOS 7’s new stylish look decided to clean up the look of their apps as well.
