Apple might be facing security threats. Although, iOS is targeted less compared to Android for mobile malware Apple want to be on top when it comes to the safety and security of their devices, and apps, and keep the data of their users safe. The nature of the iOS operating system is closed which keeps it secure and under tight control for the apps developed and published on the App store eliminating the possibility of security threats. Keeping this aside, the company is creating a variety of frameworks and kits to avoid any data leaks and security breaches. CloudKit, SiriKit, ReplayKit, DriverKit, and ARKit are some of the frameworks having user privacy and built-in app security. Apple has also launched ATS (App Transport Security) a networking feature targeting a higher level of security in iOS apps, web services, and their extensions.
The way businesses and enterprises do marketing is changing significantly. With the advent of iBeacon, it has become an integral part of marketing strategies. It uses Bluetooth signals and allows the business to send information and notifications directly to the users. This makes it an effective tool for targeting local users. iPhone app developers are at the disposal of opportunities to build innovative apps with this trend. One of the ideas to use this technology is the sensor in a store automatically connects to nearby Apple Devices and send notifications about discounts, deals, and offers. Enhanced customer experience will increase sales.
