The iOS developer is an engineer specializing in mobile development around Apple technologies and products (iPhone, iPad, etc.). He has the same profession as the Android developer, except that the latter programs applications based on Google’s mobile operating system.

The projects on which it intervenes can consist in programming the mobile equivalent of a web application, or to realize an application from scratch.

Specifically, everyday, it intervenes on several or all of the following phases:

  • Analysis of specifications.
  • Creating the application UI.
  • Choice of technologies.
  • Development of the application.
  • Unit tests and integration tests.
  • Deploying the application after submitting it to Apple.

He often works independently, in connection with a web software development project manager, a lead programmer and a UI / UX designer.
