Will iOS developers be more in demand in future?

As there is a huge crowd in android development....Is it becoming obvious that ios developers will be more demanded in future?

Android is obviously more popular, and there are a lot of statistics showing that. You can check for example this one: http://gs.statcounter.com/os-market-share/mobile/worldwide Personally, i think after Jobs' death, Apple is going to lose more market share.

I think they will both be in demand. Right now, iOS is very popular because of the attractive hardware it is used on and the great integration between iOS and MacOS. But, Android satisfies other needs. The platform is more open, the hardware is more diverse, even if the integration with desktop OSes isn’t typically as seamless. Because they each cater to different customer bases, the likelihood is that they will both remain in demand. So the question for you as a programmer may be: Which of these groups do you want to program for? Since they each serve different groups, you can pick which you like better and program for them. :)

iOS is a smaller OS used by a smaller group of people. I think Android reaches out to more people better.

You can make serious money with both, if you can cross-platform iOS and Android you, can make quite an investment 😉

I Will Not Give Up! Seems like high value clients, especially in the West still prefer Apple and that IOS development is not going to recede any time soon.

Well, if Google's Flutter programme is a hit, then it will become easier for developers to build apps that work on both Android and iOS simultaneously, and need not be developed separately.

I do not believe . Because Android is open source.so everyone can change the source code and everyone can make their own. Approx 80-90 % smartphones are based on android as well as other devices like TV,watches etc.. Every day new ideas and features are adding to android . So android become more powerfull in future . (Only my opinion 😂 )

i think Android would win on this competition as they’re more popular in this case and asHicham BOURHIL said, apple is going to lose their share of market.

I think that both will be more demanded, but I am an Android user and developer at the same time, and I don't have any possibility to do my programs in iOS at this time.

android is more popular, especially in mid- level income, but iOS Apps generate more revenue than Android apps. The other factor to consider for iOS are the watch and tvOS platforms. Will the Apple streaming service offer an opportunity for fledgling video streaming apps to rival YouTube?

I would develop for both. But it is also known that it is easier to develop for ios since their users tend to update their hardware when ever something new comes out. Android users have a far more vast variety of hardware and software that you need to make sure your program is compatible with. It just comes down to two different target audiences. :)
