iOS Developer Interview Questions

Have you ever filed bugs with Apple? Can you walk me through some?

Suggested approach: This is about demonstrating you’re a good citizen of the iOS community: you file bugs with Apple when you find them, and (just as important!) they are useful bugs with details and ideally a test case. If you file these properly, walking through shouldn’t be hard. Keep in mind that if you file bad bugs with Apple it suggests you'd be pretty bad at filing internal bugs for your own company too.

  Estimated difficulty: Intermediate

Important notes

  • There are over 150 interview questions in the system. Once you've read the question and come up with a suitable answer, try reading my suggested approach and see if it helps you add more detail.
  • These questions are not designed to be hard; a good interviewer is more interested in generating discussion that lets your ability and interests shine through.
  • If you answer a question with "yes" or "no" you've missed the point – interviewers prefer you to provide reasoning, explanation, or detail, so try to elaborate with examples!
  • If you're looking for detailed technical questions about the language, you should try my Swift tests instead – there are multiple challenges that will work your brain hard.
  • For a whole series of coding challenges, I wrote the perfect book for you: Swift Coding Challenges.
