Skills required to become an iOS Swift developer

Learning the core skills is the first step in securing remote iOS Swift developer jobs. Let's dive deep into them now.

1. Swift

Swift is an Apple-developed programming language that can be used to create iOS, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch programs. This is a valuable skill to land remote iOS Swift developer jobs. Swift is simple to use and open-source, allowing anyone with an idea to make something unique. It takes roughly one to two months to gain a basic knowledge of Swift if you study for about an hour each day. You can master the principles of Swift in a shorter amount of time if you study part-time or full-time. Swift resembles languages like Ruby and Python more than Objective-C. Swift would interest you if you learned to program in Ruby or Python.

2. SwiftUI

The second fundamental skill is SwiftUI, an Apple framework that allows you to develop Swift apps for iOS, macOS, tvOS, and even watchOS. While Swift is a programming language, SwiftUI is a set of tools for creating apps, including how to display images, text, buttons, text boxes, data tables, and more. To be clear, SwiftUI isn't a Swift substitute; it's a framework built on top of Swift that allows us to create apps. So, you'll need both Swift and SwiftUI to succeed.

3. Data and networking

Networking and data are the third and fourth skills you should have. These are a piece of cake compared to Swift and SwiftUI and are mandatory skills required to get hired as an iOS Swift developer.

Networking is retrieving information from the internet or transmitting data from a local device to a remote server. There are many ways to accomplish this, but the very minimum you need to know is how to retrieve JSON from a server.

That's where the other essential ability comes in: data analysis. You can load and save data in a variety of methods. Still, the absolute minimum you need to convert the data you acquired from a server using your network code into something your app can display.

So, the third and fourth basic skills are intertwined: get data from a server, then convert it into information shown in your app. Some developers joke that writing this type of code is half their job, and it's true that we utilize these skills frequently. You should know these skills well to get hired for remote iOS Swift developer jobs.

4. Version control

Another must-have skill is version control, which may be done with a tool like Git. Again, you don't need much here, but you must be able to post your code somewhere public, such as GitHub, so that recruiters can view it. Even if you don’t completely understand how Git works, that's alright – all you need to know is enough of the basics to save your data safely and collaborate with others.

5. Design Principles

Successful iOS apps are regarded as being extremely user-friendly. This is because these apps follow a rigid set of design rules. Data storage and presentation to the user are handled in exact ways.

You must know and comprehend these design patterns to create your intuitive apps. Design principles can assist a developer to perform well in iOS Swift developer jobs.

6. Spatial Reasoning

Successful app developers must be able to view images in three dimensions and visualize spatial relationships between objects. Therefore, you need to learn the skill if you want to work as an iOS Swift developer. You must consider how consumers will engage with your application when designing interfaces for devices like the iPhone, Apple Watch, or the forthcoming Apple TV. So you'll need to know the many types of controls/inputs accessible (and popular) for the various platforms.
