With the release of iOS 7, Apple introduced a major update to Xcode. Xcode is an IDE (integrated development environment) that mobile application developers use for developing software for iOS and OS X. The improvements made in Xcode 5 will allow developers to write better applications that are faster and have less bugs. Developers familiar with Xcode will not see many significant changes to the user interface because the majority of the changes have been made on the backend. This latest update is not disruptive technology since this is only an update and not a release of any brand new development tools. This does not add to the field of mobile technology itself, but gives developers the ability to create better applications in less time. In fact, with the new modules mechanism, Apple has seen build times improve anywhere from a few percent all the way up to 40% faster. Finally, the new version of Xcode does not impact the overall economy of mobile technology since Xcode is a free through the Apple Developer website.
