Multi-device, true native app development
RAD Studio's multi-device app development solution means you don't have to support multiple development projects to deliver your apps natively on multiple platforms (iOS, Windows and Mac OS X). RAD Studio XE4 makes it easy to build script-free true native apps for multiple devices that expose the full range of capabilities and performance in the underlying devices. Learn More >
Develop apps for iPhone and iPad
Create mobile apps using the programming skills, knowledge and code that you already have. Your RAD Studio Delphi iOS apps will have fast native performance and better security than web-based or scripting language based apps. Use a full visual designer for iOS user interfaces with multiple device types, resolutions, and orientations. Learn more >
iOS user interface controls
With Delphi in RAD Studio XE4, you get a full range of native styled user interface controls, including buttons, listboxes and combo boxes, to incorporate into your apps. The iOS apps you create include native controls like the date picker and custom picker, different keyboard types, services like notifications, and support for Share Sheet to print and share via social media, email and direct communication with other apps.
