In advance of Apple’s big event today, ZDNet notes that online training companies like Udemy have seen ten times higher enrollment in iOS 9 development courses than in similar iOS 8 courses during the first month of their respective releases.
Among the reasons noted for the high level of developer interest:
* Study after study, for example, has shown that iOS development can be more profitable than creating apps for Android, although the gap has shrunk over time.
* While sales figures for the Apple Watch haven’t been shared by Apple, several estimates have suggested that in a shorter amount of time, Apple has sold more smartwatches than Google’s partners have sold Android Wear devices
* Apple will be launching native Apple Watch app support for developers with iOS 9, providing more opportunities for programmers.
*The most cutting-edge software for phones and tablets tends to appear first on iPhones and iPads, only later coming to Android devices, if at all.
