  1. iOS8 features inbeta version were already in the market and this is said to be the crucial time for coders understand the technology and use of new language Swift. Many companies are on hiring phase and are looking for good and experienced iOS developers. I expect this demand is ever growing as the iPhone is hugely popular and is not going to stop their feet in forward direction.
