Apple has officially disclosed its all-new iOS 10 for its mobile devices, with backing for a huge number of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices. For users who have yet to install the latest operating system, here’s a breakdown of its new features and enhanced implementations.
Apple is calling iOS 10 its “biggest release ever” and this is not at all shocking, given the significant updates it provides for the Mobile Apps interface and various apps and features like Messages, Maps, Apple Music, Photos, Siri and Apple Pay. It even has support for various third-party apps.
Everything you love is now even far better with iOS 10, Biggest release yet….. incorporates new APIs and services that enable new categories of apps and features.
Here are few things iOS Developer can do with iOS 10 that they couldn’t do before.
Apps that provide services in particular domains can use SiriKit to make those services available from Siri for iPhone app developers and development companies. Making your services accessible requires creating one or more app extensions using the Intents and Intents UI frameworks. SiriKit supports services in the following domains:
Coordinating with the Messages App
In iOS 10, you can create app extensions that communicate with the Messages app and let users send text, media files, stickers and interactive messages. You can also bolster interactive messages that upgrades as each recipient responds to the message. You can build two types of app extensions:
A Sticker pack provides a collection of stickers that users can add to their Messages content.
An iMessage app gives you a chance to introduce a custom user interface within the Messages app, stickers, create a sticker browser, include text and media files within a conversation, create, send, and update interactive messages.
An iMessage app can also assist users to search images that you have on your application’s connected site while they’re in the Messages app.
iOS 10 introduces the User Notifications framework (UserNotifications.framework), which maintains the delivery and handling of local and remote notifications. You utilize the classes of this framework to plan the delivery of local notifications based on particular conditions, such as location or time. Apps and app extensions can use this framework to receive and potentially adjust remote and local notifications when they are delivered to the user’s device.
Also presented in iOS 10, the User Notifications UI framework (UserNotificationsUI.framework) allows you customize the appearance of remote and local notifications when they appear on the user’s device. You use this framework to determine an app extension that receives the notification data and provides the corresponding visual illustration. Your extension can also respond to custom activities connected with those notifications.
iOS 10 introduces a unique API that supports continuous speech recognition and helps you develop apps that can recognize speech and transcribe it into text. Adopting the APIs in the Speech framework (Speech.framework), you can achieve speech transcription of both constant and recorded audio. For instance, you can get a speech recognizer and start simple speech recognition using code like this:
iOS 10 introduces a unique design for the lock screen, which now represents widgets. To ensure that your widget looks great on any background, you can define widgetPrimaryVibrancyEffect or widgetSecondaryVibrancyEffect, as relevant (use these properties rather than the deprecated notificationCenterVibrancyEffect property). In addition, widgets now incorporate the concept of display mode (represented by NCWidgetDisplayMode), which gives you a chance to portray the amount of content is accessible and allows users to prefer a compact or expanded view.
The CallKit framework (CallKit.framework) allows VoIP apps incorporate with the iPhone UI and give users a great experience. Use this framework to engage users in viewing and answering incoming VoIP calls on the lock screen and manage contacts from VoIP calls in the Phone app’s Favorites and Recent views.
CallKit also presents app extensions that allow call blocking and caller identification. You can build an app extension that can correlate a phone number with a name or tell the system when a number should be blocked.
In iOS 10, iPad can be configured to grant remote access to accessories, run automation triggers, and facilitate shared user consents. In addition, the HomeKit framework (HomeKit.framework) includes support for camera and doorbell accessories and introduces numerous new APIs that help you:
These new hooks are slowly but surely redefining the App Store. In short, iOS 10 does bring new features for iPhone developers. Well, it’s time you may want to upgrade your iOS applications.
