iOS Development involves creating and publishing apps and softwares to be posted on the Apple store. iOS developers need to write their apps using "Code X" the graphical interface of Apple Inc. Languages and tools like Swift, Ionic, Android SDK, Cordova and AP are vital to become a versatile iOS developer. There's always been a debate about the competitiveness of app development platforms, and a major rivalry has been maintained between iOS development and Android development.
And while both the platforms have their pros and cons, both are equally important app development platforms that app creators need to be familiar with, since user reachability increases if the app is available on more than one platform.

developers need to be familiar with iOS development because as of 2018, Apple holds 15.6% of worldwide market share and its among the top 5 smartphone vendors since 2009. Hence, the probability of the amount of users and potential app buyers reached significantly increases if an app is available on the Apple App Store.
Apple's app quality is undeniably much better than any other OS or app development platform, it does not allow third-party apps to overload the phone, run in the background, or reduce battery life. This creates a better user experience for iOS users and therefore app creators do not have to compromise on their app quality. In addition the Apple OS provides better user compatibility, support for USB Audio devices and a power AI tool like Siri.
Apple is definitely a great platform for every developer, and can help boost a budding developer's career faster than other OS platforms, while ensuring app quality.
