Is iOS 7 Bringing You Down?

It’s the most comprehensive operating system update Apple has issued since it introduced the iPhone. And opinions run the gamut – from it being the best thing since sliced bread to one of Apple’s most challenging and difficult platforms to maneuver and develop for. There are rumors flying, too, that 90% of apps developed to previous OS’s are crashing on iOS 7.

No matter what you believe, the reality is that many of the apps out there today have had to undergo a significant redevelopment to accommodate the new OS. Not only to avoid crashes and bugs, but also to incorporate the new UI design and maintain functionality on all the devices the new system is compatible with. Not to mention to look good on all the varying display sizes; and there’s that pesky 64-bit of business.

So while you may have already redeveloped your app to accommodate iOS 7, or have developed a new app for iOS 7, there are lots of elements that you may not have considered in your QA testing process. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to ensure that your apps are truly optimized for iOS 7 and will continue to rate highly:

  • Does my app function properly on all iOS 7 supported devices? That includes: iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPod touch (5th gen), iPad 2, iPad with Retina display, and iPad Mini.
  • Does it display correctly on all the different sizes and types of displays? iPad Mini, 4-inch display on iPhone 5 and Retina displays?
  • Do I have a version that is optimized for the 32-bit processor and one for the 64-bit processor?
  • Does my app’s UI look right in iOS 7? Does it look strange, or out of date, or just too sterile?
  • Do all my app’s pages display correctly?
