iOS 11 Concerns

A general concern of mine that I wanted to bring up. I know that apple is releasing iOS11 in the upcoming months. I’m genuinely concerned about what’s going to be on the new operating system. If they update their contact page to make it more efficient, or add some type of technology similar to my app it could crush my idea. Do you guys have any insights or thoughts on this?

Large companies move relatively slow. If anything get your app out fast. It’s the best barrier to people implementing a similar idea. If Apple does make your app obsolete hopefully you will have a captive audience and you’ll be able to properly pivot.

I learned this lesson from dealing with Google, we received notice that they will be rolling out something called Team Drive that will do essentially do one of the things we were doing. It took them over 3 years to actually bring to market.

Most of the time app’s are quite forward and backward compatible, it more depends on your app’s build configuration yet it’s backward compatobility that is more concerning sometimes than forward

Means, firstly app will be compatible with iOS 11 even it’s developed with tools used for iOS 10 , yet if there happens to be really aggressive change I am pretty sure Apple will contact every developer to inform about it well in time and since I am also associated with Apple Developer Program, so I not worried or concerned about any such change

Bottom line, such things can always be dealt with and that’s pretty easily… :)
