Salesforce and Apple partner up!

The collaboration is expected to streamline mobile development for customers to bring:

  • A fully native iOS app that will add key features such as Shortcuts and integration with Apple's Business Chat.
  • A Salesforce Mobile SDK optimized for Swift. Which will allow to build and deploy apps on Salesforce's Lightning platform.
  • Salesforce's education platform, Trailhead, as a mobile app. Which will include Swift education courses to help drive adoption of the mobile SDK.

This collaboration gives Salesforce another growth opportunity. Just las Bret Taylor, president and chief product officer at Salesforce, adds:
