How to become a Senior iOS Engineer ?

Skills in mobile app development are in high demand. As more people utilize it, it is becoming increasingly crucial to select the most popular mobile technology. Given the popularity and demand for Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod, it's logical to conclude that iOS engineer jobs are a terrific alternative.

There are several employment opportunities in iOS development for both seasoned and entry-level professionals, with competitive pay and opportunities for progress. According to a new poll of mobile app developers performed by Vision Mobile, iOS is the best technology to invest your time and money in. Senior iOS engineer jobs are becoming increasingly popular as more people utilize the internet.

What is the scope for Senior iOS engineer?

While Android has a larger worldwide market share, Apple currently has 1 billion iPhones in use—all of which operate on iOS. As a result, the demand for iOS engineers who can design apps for these devices that are offered in the Apple App Store has risen dramatically in recent years. As of 2021, the App Store has 1.96 million apps, and mobile apps are predicted to produce more than $935 billion in sales by 2023. The typical smartphone user downloads and installs 10 applications per day and 30 apps per month. According to CIO magazine, mobile developers are among the top ten most in-demand tech occupations. App developer positions are expected to rise 22 percent between 2019 and 2029, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Senior iOS developer roles usually require dealing with larger and more complicated websites and technologies, as well as more layered stacks than previously. Rather than finding and hiring a large number of staff who are tightly specialized, many companies are giving Senior iOS engineers jobs who can work in numerous areas and do multiple duties. This not only saves money but also allows a single person to handle and comprehend all parts of a project, avoiding misunderstanding and information silos.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a Senior iOS engineer?

A Senior iOS engineer's job is to create, test, and refine apps for mobile devices running Apple's iOS operating system that are in line with their company's or client's goals and requirements.

Skills required to become a Senior iOS engineer

The first step is to gain the fundamental abilities that will enable you to secure a high-paying remote Senior iOS engineer job.

1. Swift

Swift is Apple's programming language designed exclusively for app development. This is the language that will be used for all future iOS development. So, you must be aware of it! Our experts admit that it isn't a "little" language, but you don't have to know everything to get a job as a junior iOS developer. What you must do is ensure that you are comfortable with:

  • Basic syntax
  • Optionals
  • Control Flow (If and Switch Statements)
  • Classes, inheritance & initialization
  • Error handling
  • Objective-C Interoperability

2. Spatial reasoning

Successful app developers must be able to conceive in 3-D and visualize the spatial relationships between items. Simply said, when designing interfaces for devices such as the iPhone, Apple Watch, or the forthcoming Apple TV, you must consider how consumers will interact with your program. So, you must do the following - Understand the many sorts of controls/inputs available (and popular) for the various platforms, and utilize the devices you're targeting so you can reason about them! While some people may be more naturally gifted in this area, be assured that it is an acquired talent that can be mastered with practice and by working on real-world tasks.

3. Design guidelines

Successful iOS applications are well-known and praised for being extremely user-friendly. This is due to the fact that these applications must comply to a specific set of design rules. The storage and display of data to the user are managed in very particular ways. You must be familiar with and comprehend these design patterns in order to create your own intuitive apps. As a result, if you pursue a career as an iOS developer through our iOS Developer Nanodegree programme, you will study important topics such as:

  • Swift is the programming language used to create iOS apps.
  • UIKit is Apple's front-end framework for creating sophisticated and speedy online interfaces.
  • Apple's Grand Central Dispatch and network demands (GCD)
  • Learn about basic persistence, the iOS File System, and the "sandbox."

4. Networking

To appreciate the significance of networking in app development, consider an app on your phone that does not communicate with the internet. Could you come up with one? Chances are you couldn't, or it took you a while to think of one, because practically every program we use communicates with the web in some manner. As a result, it's critical that you grasp how to send and receive data from the network. This is accomplished using a format known as JSON, which stands for JavaScript Object Notation. If you're not acquainted with the format, it may appear difficult, but it's a very standard format that's actually quite simple.

5. Core data

Here's what one of our Subject Matter Experts had to say about Core Data recently: "Learning Core Data is like working out: the first few days are agony, but after the second week, you can't believe you ever lived without it!" Core Data is, in essence, Apple's persistent framework. Consider how your data would be lost every time you used an app. This would be analogous to the early days of video games, when you had to complete Super Mario Brothers in a single run since you couldn't save your progress. The most significant foundation for storing data on Apple devices is Core Data.

6. Grand central dispatch

Grand Central Dispatch, sometimes abbreviated as GCD, is what lets you add "concurrency" to your programmes, allowing numerous processes to perform concurrently with ease. What is the significance of this? Our apps perform a lot at once: they get data from a network, show information on the screen, interpret user touch inputs, and so on. Running all of these things at once would place a tremendous load on the user's phone, causing it to either operate very slowly or crash.
