One reason why developers need to stay up on the latest trends is that major technological updates can change everything overnight. Some news reports suggest that Apple is about to make such a change to its iPhone line.
According to an article in Business Insider, some analysts are now quite convinced that Apple is planning to release a 4.7 inch iPhone 6 this fall. Currently, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C measure 4 inches, which is somewhat smaller than most major Android phones on the market.
In addition, the company appears to be considering some software changes. TechCrunch reports that Apple is planning to make important additions to the next version of its operating system, iOS 8, including a more advanced mapping app and mobile health applications. The company is also expected to make a number of tweaks to the overall design of the operating system, and while these are not expected to be as substantial as the ones that came with iOS 7, they will still be different.
Prospective app developers who focus on iOS and are seeking career opportunities in Houston must keep up with these changes. New apps will need to be designed with them in mind, be they screen size or basic system function. Luckily, with so many companies seeking to build and improve mobile apps, there will be no shortage of work for those who are qualified.
