More than two months after its Android counterpart was released, DJI has finally made the Mobile SDK version 4.16 for iOS available to developers. The highly-awaited update enables third-party automated flight planning apps such as Litchi and Maven to add features not natively present in DJI Mini 2, DJI Mini SE, and DJI Air 2S drones.

What is DJI Mobile SDK (MSDK) for iOS?

The DJI MSDK for iOS is a software development kit that gives developers easy access to the latent capabilities of DJI drones. Essentially, the SDK simplifies the application development process for developers by automatically handling lower-level functionalities such as flight stabilization, battery management, signal transmission, and communication.

This way, third-party developers for DJI drones can straightaway get down to making apps more useful for operators without worrying about the nitty-gritty of robotics and embedded systems.
