The New iPhone + Enterprise Apps : What you Need to Know

One of the most highly anticipated tech event of the year has come and gone, much like the years before it and the years to come. The Apple iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and the iPhone XR have been revealed to the world- although they won’t be released until later in the year.  


There are many new specs, including a new A12 bionic CPU, (which promises to deliver a 15% performance boost), dual SIM support, and up to an hour and a half more battery life for some models. Storage options range from 64 GB up to 512 GB, and beyond the traditional colors of gold, silver, and space grey, the iPhone XR is also offered in black, blue, coral, red, and yellow.

While Apple introduced the new operating system macOS Mojave in June, the system update won’t actually be released to the masses until 24 September. This update will include Dark Mode, automatic file organization with Stacks, four new built in apps and a completely redesigned Mac App Store.

The new Apple features are nice, but the real question you and your colleagues should be asking is “Are our enterprise apps ready for iOS 12?”  

The new iOS 12 operating system will feature intelligent app support, with the intention to utilize the power of machine learning. Additional support for the iPad is also being made available.

In February of this year, Apple released a statement that all new app submissions must support features of the iPhone X by July 2018, and similar requirements and timelines are expected for the newly released iPhone XS and XR series.

If you’ve already updated your apps for the iPhone X, Apple suggests developers build apps with the iOS 12 SDK and test it in Simulator (which is included in XCode 10) to ensure the app looks as it should on all devices.

To update your enterprise apps:

-       Run and test the apps in Simulator

-       Enable Full Screen Native Resolution

-       Verify all parts of your apps

-       Upload through incapptic Connect to publish to App Store

Unsure of how to get started?
