React Native Development: How is it Different for Android and iOS?

  • Differences between React Native development for Android and iOS
  • Operation system — It is advisable to use a MacOS device compared to Windows for your React Native app. The reason is Windows does not allow you to test the iOS app. For the Android app, we have an official testing tool, “Android Studio.” But we do not have iOS testing tools for Windows.
  • Styles — The React Native elements for iOS and Android have a specific fashion. For example, shadowing in both looks different. However, it does not mean developers used different styles. The developer styled the shadow once using JavaScript. It displays in a specific way on each platform.
