There are essential security architectures for mobile apps which must be in place before releasing the application on the app store.
Over the air (OTA) updates should be handled coherently with backward compatibility for all user. On multiple occasions, apps collect user feedback, behavior analytics etc which developers should use to improvise and roll out improved versions of the app. All the app updates must be simple and clear without disrupting the user experience irrespective of the device or platform. Apart from this, mobile app updates routinely assures the user and enhances their experience. In today’s world, outsmarting competition using innovation in mobile space can have a positive impact on business growth. Without an app update strategy, mobile applications might just become outdated on the app store.

Irrespective of internet connection, mobile apps should be able to function in a limited way. Moreover, when a user downloads and installs a mobile app, the app developer should meet certain basic expectations of the user. Simultaneously, provisions should be provided so that the mobile app can function even in an offline or airplane mode, which helps in user retention.
