Cost of developing apps for iOs
There are many factors which influence the cost of iOs mobile development and app development. They include factors necessary for successful implementation of the idea, for development and design, and for post-release services.
So, let’s try to figure out what factors mobile app development depends on:
- Technical complexity
There are many features which can be implemented in mobile app development. Depending on how many features a customer wants in the app, the cost of it can vary greatly. Examples of such features are integration with third parties (libraries, services, social media accounts and so on), implementation of in-app purchases, use of hardware mobile components (NFC, Bluetooth, GPS, heart rate sensors, barometers), development of custom-made admin panel, back-end development, use of Application Programming Interface, and others.
- Compatibility with devices and OS
There are different devices and mobile operational systems with which your application has to work together. For example, in developing iOs apps it is important that the application is compatible with the latest versions of iPhone devices and support different versions of iOs operating system.
For an iOs development company, it is always easier, thus less expensive, to build standard design. Custom design is usually more complex to implement, thus more expensive.
- Post-release support
With mobile apps, it is not just about development, it is also about post-release support. This part of expenses is not always included in initial cost estimate. Some iOs app developer provide post-release support as an additional service. It may include marketing and promotion, regular updates, maintenance of back-end servers, cloud hosting, customer support, and so on.
