Salesforce Partners With Apple, Will Release SDK for iOS Later This Year and Redesigned iOS App in Early 2019

Apple and Salesforce today announced that the two companies have reached a strategic partnership in customer relationship management.


Working with Apple, Salesforce has agreed to redesign its mobile app to take full advantage of iOS features like Face ID, Siri Shortcuts, 3D Touch, Apple Business Chat via iMessage, and more. The new app, slated for release by early 2019, will also better adhere to Apple's Human Interface Guidelines.

Salesforce will also be releasing a new SDK for iOS by the end of 2018. Optimized for Apple's programming language Swift, the native SDK will enable businesses and developers to build and deploy apps for iPhone and iPad on the Salesforce Lightning Platform, and distribute them through the App Store.

To support developer learning and career growth, Apple is launching a new Get Started with iOS App Development course on Trailhead, Salesforce's free, web-based learning platform. The course, which will teach anyone how to build native iOS apps in Xcode with Swift, is available starting today.

Attendees of the Dreamforce 2018 convention can get an early look at the new Apple and Salesforce offerings in the Salesforce Campground, in the Moscone South Halls ABC, or the Trailhead Area in Moscone West Level 1.
