Last week’s post on SiriKit’s Intents UI framework was the last in this series of exploratory posts on the new features available to developers in iOS 10. With hundreds of subscribers, tweeters, and readers, iOS 10 Day by Day has been a huge success.

The overarching theme of this release has all been about ‘integration': apps built for iOS 10 can now hook into many areas of the system. From richer notifications with custom UI to iMessage Apps; a lot of the new features are based on App Extensions.

If we exclude the two topics that took a look at some new features of Xcode (Source Editor Extensions – also built on top of MacOS App Extensions – and Thread Sanitizer) then half of the features we looked at made use of the Extensions technology. It’s almost certain that we’ll see this expanded upon in iOS 11 next year, with the Intents framework being expanded to cover more domains and ever-more integration with the system itself.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
