Apple executives detailed the new development tools announced at WWDC 21 and how they can create value for app builders.
During WWDC 2021, Apple announced new resources and tools for developers of the App Store which, although not attracting the attention of the general public, could have a very important impact in the coming months.
Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of developer relations, and Andreas Wendker, Apple’s VP tools and frameworks, talked about new technologies a CNET.
“All these advances in tools and technologies are the result of a vision that we have been pursuing for years. They are truly the result of an unending focus on our part to build long-lasting platforms that create value for developers and users“Said Wendker.
One such tool is Swift Playgrounds, an educational app originally intended to teach coding. At WWDC, Apple announced that developers will be able to create iPhone or iPad apps directly in Swift Playgrounds.
“Our feeling is that every child should learn to code, not because everyone becomes a programmer, but because the world around us is powered by code. We will help as many people as possible in as many walks of life as possible, from as many communities and cultures as possible, to learn to developPrescott said.
Other developer updates include a new one API SharePlay, the ability to include in-app events, a version of TestFlight per Mac and a platform Xcode Cloud which will allow for continuous integration and distribution of code among colleagues.
“There are many steps developers need to follow when developing apps, such as testing and integrating their code with their peers, and that takes a lot of time.or, ”Wendker said. Xcode Cloud, which recently became available for beta testing, allows developers to automate many tasks using Apple’s cloud services. The novelty is integrated into Xcode 13.
“And frankly, a lot of these tasks are often very mundane and developers just don’t want to do them. So, the idea behind a continuous integration system like Xcode Cloud is that it basically downloads a lot of these activities that can be automated in the cloud.“Said Wendker of this feature.
“Xcode Cloud gives developers a lot of their time back so they can really focus on their code. And that means they have more time to find bugs and problems, find them sooner and then create higher quality apps and have more time to work on new features.“Concluded Wendker.Dev
