How to Become a Freelance iOS Developer

Do you have a passion for Apple products and how apps work? Do you want to work on exciting new apps and projects used by millions of people worldwide?

Then you’d love to work as a freelance iOS developer on Upwork! As a freelance iOS developer, you’ll get to choose your own work and schedule—you’re not forced to sign a contract for something you won’t like.

What does an iOS developer do?

iOS developers build apps for the Apple ecosystem. Some examples include productivity apps, video players, mobile games, banking apps, and social media apps.

An iOS developer will be familiar with Apple hardware and software. Since iOS development relies on keeping the user interface as clean as possible, software developers must write clean and efficient code in Objective-C or Swift.

Developers of iOS software have traditionally worked with the Objective-C programming language, though in 2004, Apple released its programming language called Swift. Swift has since become a popular choice for iOS app development, though jobs for both are still commonly found.

Developers will typically also be familiar with working on macOS or Linux environments and using other hardware in the Apple ecosystem.

What skills do I need to become an iOS developer?

No formal qualifications are necessary to become an iOS developer, but candidates must be expected to pass code tests or otherwise demonstrate competency with iOS development.

A strong portfolio with code samples and commits to open-source projects helps candidates to stand out.

Common skills a freelance iOS developer should possess include:

  • Thorough understanding of either Objective-C or Swift programming languages
  • Sense of modern coding standards and architectures, such as MVVM
  • Understanding of the Apple ecosystems
  • Experience with GitHub, an integrated development environment (IDE), JavaScript, iOS SDK, and SwiftUI

What are the job responsibilities of iOS developers?

iOS developers are responsible for developing and maintaining features as part of a larger software project. They often work as part of a team and toward common goals. Developers will be expected to work with third-party libraries, outside APIs, frameworks, and other tools to develop iOS device apps.

iOS developers primarily work in Xcode, Apple's integrated development environment for macOS, which is used to develop software for Apple products such as the Mac, the iPhone, iOS, the iPad, watchOS, and tvOS.

The responsibilities of an iOS developer typically include:

  • Architecting solutions and tutorials for client problems
  • Writing code to project requirements
  • Developing tests for new code
  • Finding and fixing bugs in existing code
