Apps can be built for iOS devices either by using the native iOS SDK with Objective-C and Swift or with the various cross-platform technologies that are written against the SDK of that framework, but targeted for iOS.
For building Android apps, developers need the Android development toolkit that comes with the required SDK, debuggers, and emulators. Thus far, Java is the most widely used language for Android app development. And yet, Kotlin has become the preferred language for Android development, as per Google.
C# is an Object-Oriented programming language that was developed by Microsoft and the Xamarin framework (acquired by Microsoft) allows you to program in C# against the .NET framework. The C# code is cross-compiled and runs natively on the iOS or Android device.
Dart is an Object-Oriented programming language. Mobile Developers use Google’s Flutter framework to write mobile apps for iOS. One of the unique capabilities of Flutter is that Flutter comes with its own UI widget framework library that is based on Google Material design as well as iOS-like UI widgets.
