Frequently asked questions

How is this offering unique?

This is a one-stop-shop for developers building applications for Apple platforms on the IBM Cloud. Build cloud-native, production-ready applications without the need to search through documentation to find what applies to Apple development. Virtually everything an Apple developer needs to build a cloud-native, full-stack application can be found in the console.

How are developers guided?

Using the aggregation of all related documentation, you’re guided through setting up your development environment; deploying to Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry or OpenWhisk; and using or adding SDKs. Follow the documentation and walk through a self-explanatory UI to generate and deploy a preconfigured application.

How does this make IBM Cloud different?

Other cloud platforms do not offer a comprehensive view for Apple developers. IBM Cloud makes it easier so developers can spend more time in Apple’s integrated development environment for macOS — Xcode — and less time in the deep corners of documentation.

What benefit will this provide the developer community?

Developers can instantly start coding in Xcode and innovating with IBM Cloud services like IBM Watson Visual Recognition and IBM® Push Notifications. It’s not necessary to spend days or weeks combing through documentation and setting up a development environment.

What advantage will this bring to the enterprise?

By helping developers build quicker and easier with a specifically curated experience to develop native iOS apps that connect to the IBM Cloud, enterprises reduce development costs.
