Since the day of its launch, Apple has been constantly hitting big in the technological world with its high-end devices and unique features. Apart from this, Apple has never disappointed its consumers when it comes to online services and computer software.
According to recent news, Apple may be in the process of creating a model for Xcode that works on the iPhone as well as iPad. If this is true, it could result in the development of mobile apps on their native devices that will be ultimately used in the future.
Both the iPhone and iPad are capable of performing a number of tasks. In fact, some people have started using mobile phones as fully-fledged replacements to traditional computers and notebooks. So far, Apple hasn’t covered on-device development. With the introduction of iOS14 and iPadOS14, this may also change very soon.
What makes Xcode an efficient tool for developers?
Most of the remote developers and iOS app development companies have been using Xcode due to the various benefits it offers. Apple’s latest Xcode 11 has everything that a developer needs to build amazing apps that run on multiple devices. By using Xcode 11, app developers can also reap the benefits of SwiftUl, a simple and innovative way to build user interfaces with a declarative Swift syntax that is easy to read and write. Thus, with just a few clicks, developers can make their iPads apps compatible with Mac as well. On the other hand, with the help of Swift packages, Xcode 11 allows developers of various apps to share code or use packages.
As per the leaker Jon Prosser’s Twitter post, XCode is “present on iOS/iPad OS 14.” He also claimed that he had mentioned its existence during his live stream as well. Further, he suggests that its incorporation opens up new opportunities for “pro” applicants to arrive on the iPad.
However, Apple has not given permission to iPhone and iPad users for developing apps directly on devices. The least that it has authorized is Swift Playgrounds, an application on the iPad that allows Swift development and experimentation, which stops as the development of the applications starts.
Although Prosser claimed that the implications of XCode on the iPhone and iPad are huge, it is still unclear how a full version of XCode brings “Pro” applications to the iPad. A pathway to develop a platform via a Mac also exists. Therefore, it is wise to consider this condition, as it allows users to produce applications.
Today, most iOS app designing services providers in India use a Mac or MacBook to develop iOS or iPadOS applications, while testing applications and viewing the layout is possible during the development. With application development on an iPhone or iPad, people can build apps without requiring a Mac or MacBook beforehand. This, as a result, eliminates the entry barriers when it comes to development.

Summary – The plans for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 will be fully revealed by early June via WWDC 2020. Meanwhile, let’s have a look at what iOS 14 has for Xcode.
