  • 2. iOS Challenges: 2012 Will Not Be an Easy YearApple has been the face of innovation in technology in last decade. iPhone andiPad saw unprecedented sales in recent past. Apple hit new heights financially in2011, with $108bn in revenues in its fiscal year ending in September – up from$65bn in 2010. Apple still maintains many of the advantages that have sustainedits growth during the past few years, iOS is definitely one of the major contributorto Apple’s success.iOS is the operating system shipped with iPhone and iPad. NPD ConnectedIntelligence analyst, Ross Rubin said part of what continues to make iOS soattractive to developers is “not only to the popularity of the platform but thevertical integration and consistency among models that the platform provides.”We even created an infographic based post as to why developers prefer iOS overAndroid for the same. ©  TechAhead
  • 3. iOS Challenges: 2012 Will Not Be an Easy YearRoad ahead for iOS though is not as smooth as many would expect, it is facing afierce competition from many competitors, majorly Android. Just like everythingelse in this world, iOS too have deficiencies. We will be covering few suchdeficiencies, which may cause speed bumps for iOS in 2012. ©  TechAhead
  • 4. Underutilized Notification CenteriOS though provides a notification center, it is not as developed as WindowsPhone. As Current Analysis, Avi Greengart explains it, one of iOS’s keydeficiencies is that even with iOS 5′s Notification Center, it still does not providea great deal of “glanceable information” the way that Windows Phone does withits constantly updating live tiles. It takes some effort to get access to the mostrelevant information via applications in iOS. ©  TechAhead
  • 5. No Native Navigation ComponentAndroid offers spoken-turn-by-turn navigation as a native component andNokia’s Drive application for Windows Phone offers a similar experience. iOS onthe other hand has no such component. Also, Android’s mapping is much moreextensive, and late last year Google added airports, shopping malls, retaillocations and other indoors destinations to its core Maps app. Apple usesGoogle’s mapping service but the updates to it are not as quick as many wouldlike. iOS certainly needs to improve on this aspect. ©  TechAhead
  • 6. Major Breakthrough InnovationApple for the last decade has clearly led the market and now the market hasproved to be very good at being a “fast follower.” Most of the iOS features(wherever possible) have already been provided by competitors, or are availableusing third-party apps. Apple needs to come up with something like Siri again, andagain. ©  TechAhead
  • 7. No Availability for Low End PhoneSo far Apple has seemed content to maintain its position as a premiumsmartphone provider. However, the low end of the smartphone market presentsa fertile opportunity for Apple, which CEO Tim Cook has acknowledged in thepast as a missing piece of the company’s strategy. iOS needs to be available forlow end phones. Till it is made available, Apple will continue to lose on the lowend phones category. ©  TechAhead
  • 8. Having said all this, we know that Apple knows about all these deficiencies, andprobably about lot more, and is working on it. Even with all these deficiencies,iOS is the famous choice for normal users, developers and businesses alike, andprobably will continue to be so for a long time to come.Do you have an iPhone Apps development idea?
