How we develop iOS applications

We are a full-cycle iOS app development company and do everything from planning to post-publishing maintenance. You can rely on us to plan out your app’s functionality and create a visual design. We work quickly and keep you updated through regular reports using battle-tested techniques.


Our iOS app development services start from careful research and planning. We hold a kick-off session with a client to have a shared understanding of their vision, the challenges the mobile app would solve, its features, the target audience, and so on.

Besides, our business analysts carry out comprehensive market research to ensure the application’s competitiveness in its niche. An opportunity analysis helps us find a gap between the current market offerings and the possibilities of technological advances, economic changes, or social trends. We also arrange all the requirements for the next phases of iPhone app development at this step.


Choosing custom iOS app development by Backbone, you get a goal-driven, clean-looking, and readable application. Our designers use wireframes to decide on the looks, feel, and navigation of the iOS application and also sketch out the app’s flow control and structure.

After discussion with the developers and your approval, we create mockups and prototypes (if necessary). Our experience lets us select the best fitting color scheme, fonts, types of buttons, and widgets for your application type. The resulting assets library and the mockups allow the development team to focus on code rather than shapes and colors and quickly turn visuals into a working product.


Backbone developers are well-versed in native languages for custom iOS app development, such as Swift and Objective-C. We also build cross-platform solutions using React Native. Our engineers apply cutting-edge iOS app development software, technologies, and capabilities for efficient product delivery. They constantly monitor and test new techniques and practices to build competitive applications that bring high ROI.

Following Agile principles, we work in iterations, planning the development of each unit and testing it right after completion. This allows us to maintain focus on the end goal and eliminate any errors and bugs before they become deeply incorporated into the app’s code.


Once the app is built and tested, we deploy it to the App Store. We can perform beta testing before the app deployment upon the client’s request. For this, we invite users to test Push notifications, data storage, make calls to third-party APIs, etc.

To ensure the correct performance of our application across devices, we prefer real-device testing. However, if you want to cut the cost of iOS app development services even more, we can perform cloud testing, which is a bit less accurate.

We follow a tested routine to properly submit an app to the App Store and minimize the review time. It involves assembling app information, creation of a bundle identifier, certificates, provisioning profiles, and listings.


We don’t set and forget about our products once they go live. As a reliable iOS app development company, we keep monitoring user feedback as well as the app’s performance KPIs and step in with fixes or updates as needed.

At Backbone, you can hire an iPhone app development and support team to upgrade your obsolete app to the newest hardware requirements. We will improve the application’s compatibility with the latest OS, update the interface to meet the current trends and usage patterns, refresh third-party libraries, and fix security vulnerabilities.

Additionally, our team can expand your existing app’s functionality, building new features over the old code without touching the latter.
