Apple has recently acquired developer support company buddybuild in an apparent effort to make iOS app development easier. The news was first spotted by iMore.

According to its site, buddybuild provides “continuous integration, continuous delivery and an iterative feedback solution into a single, seamless platform.”

Here’s more from the company’s blog post:

We’re excited to share that the buddybuild team has joined the Xcode engineering group at Apple to build amazing developer tools for the entire iOS community.

We’ve always been proud to be a Canadian company, so we’re also pleased that we will be staying right here in Vancouver — a hotbed of developer and engineering talent.

The buddybuild service will remain available to existing customers to build, test, and ship iOS apps to testers through

As of today, we are no longer accepting new customers. Existing Free Starter plans and Android app development will be discontinued on March 1, 2018.
