Submissions for mobile apps for iOS are subject to approval by Apple’s App Review team, as outlined in the SDK agreement, for basic reliability testing and other analysis, before being published on the App Store.
Applications may still be distributed ad hoc if they are rejected, by the author manually submitting a request to Apple to license the application to individual iPhones, although Apple may withdraw the ability for authors to do this at a later date.
where Swift is overtaking Objective-C rapidly and the momentum is clear. In the
Android world, presently, the language option is not that clear.
Yes, Kotlin is
there, new, coming forward, garden-fresh, 21-century ready but it isn’t ultimately
taking off, not as expected.
Kotlin was first
introduced by JetBrains in 2011, which is the creator of IntelliJ IDEA,
PyCharm, and many other top IDEs. It got its name from ‘Kotlin Island’ in St.
Petersburg, Russia. Made to strike Java.
That said, the
dominance of Java is still immense, the number of libraries, APIs, code
generally speaking is humongous. Not to mention the readability of it, the many
algorithms and things done or thought already in Java, yeah… Simple as it
sounds, it’s hard to break a solid present for a “uncertain” bright future.

A new version of the Swift programming language is coming: Swift 5.0. It’s slated to be released early 2019, with a fair number of changes. How does this Swift update affect practical iOS development? And who’s making these changes anyway?
In this article, we’ll walk through some of the proposed and accepted changes for Swift 5.0. We’ll also discuss how the process of making changes to the Swift language works, and why that’s relevant for iOS developers.
Version 5 of Apple’s Swift language used for iOS and MacOS application development will arrive in 2019 with ABI (application binary interface) stability in the standard Swift library a primary focus.
ABI stability is half of what is needed to support binary frameworks. The other half, module stability, will be a “stretch goal” for Swift 5 and may not make it into the release, Apple’s roadmap notes.
