Redefining how Apple Developers build applications

Share this post:

Digging through layers of cloud-integration documentation before even opening Xcode is precious time that could be spent building apps. To provide the fastest route to coding, we’re excited to announce the IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple, an IBM Cloud destination that offers everything you need to create a full-stack cloud native application, no digging required.

This is one of multiple new additions to the Apple and IBM partnership that was forged nearly four years ago. The announcement is taking center stage at Think 2018, showcasing the value IBM Cloud and Watson bring to the Apple developer community.

Focus on code

We’ll set everything up for you, including automatic configuration of your cloud development environment, seamless integration with a DevOps toolchain, and easy access to add AI, database and mobile services.

Minimize configuration

Automatically configure your development, test and production Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry environments. Take advantage of collaboration tools including Slack, Git, and Jenkins, as part of an open DevOps toolchain, to manage automated build, test and deployment.

Delivery Pipeline

Maximize productivity with your favorite frameworks and tools

Use your favorite tools to learn cloud development best practices. Bring your own technology stack or select from a collection of pre-configured Starter-Kits. Use the companion IBM Cloud Developer Tools CLI to create, build, test, and deploy your apps.

Starter Kits available on the IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple

Simplify integration with AI, Data and Mobile technologies

Get on-demand access to a complete collection of Cloud services tailored to accelerate app development for Apple platforms. Choose from databases, AI, push notifications, app analytics, and Blockchain, and let the IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple automatically provision and integrate these services into your app.

Multiple services and Swift SDKs available to automatically provision and integrate with an application

We are excited to help you take your idea to production in half the time.

If you’re not developing on Apple, check out the IBM Cloud App Service to build cloud apps in less than 5 minutes.
