Apple and Salesforce are partnering to bring together the Salesforce customer relationship management platform and iOS, enabling new mobile apps for business.
Working with Apple, Salesforce is redesigning its app to embrace the native mobile platform with exclusive new features on iOS.
The companies will also provide tools and resources for Salesforce developers to build their own native apps with a new Salesforce Mobile SDK for iOS, and a new iOS app development course on Trailhead, Salesforce's free, web-based learning platform.
The redesigned Salesforce Mobile App will take full advantage of native iOS features like Face ID, Siri Shortcuts, 3D Touch and more. Salesforce has also applied Apple's Human Interface Guidelines.
Salesforce will also introduce the first ever Trailhead Mobile App, first on iOS. The partners will also deliver iOS apps for industries and small business that will serve their specific customer needs.
The Get Started with iOS App Development Trail is available today at trailhead.com/apple.
The new Salesforce Mobile SDK for iOS will be available by the end of 2018.
The rebuilt Salesforce Mobile App will be available in early 2019; the first ever Trailhead Mobile App will launch later next year.
