The goal of this book is to teach the skills necessary to create iOS applications using the iOS 10 SDK, Xcode 8 and the Swift 3 programming language.

How you make use of this book will depend to a large extent on whether you are new to iOS development, or have worked with iOS 9 and need to get up to speed on the features of iOS 10 and the latest version of the Swift programming language. Rest assured, however, that the book is intended to address both category of reader.




For New iOS Developers

If you are entirely new to iOS development then the entire contents of the book will be relevant to you.

Beginning with the basics, this book provides an outline of the steps necessary to set up an iOS development environment. An introduction to the architecture of iOS 10 and programming in Swift 3 is provided, followed by an in-depth look at the design of iOS applications and user interfaces. More advanced topics such as file handling, database management, in-app purchases, graphics drawing and animation are also covered, as are touch screen handling, gesture recognition, multitasking, location management, local notifications, camera access and video and audio playback support. Other features are also covered including Auto Layout, App Store hosted in-app purchase content, Sprite Kit-based game development, local map search and user interface animation using UIKit dynamics.

Additional features of iOS development using Xcode 8 are also covered, including Swift playgrounds, universal user interface design using size classes, app extensions, Interface Builder Live Views, embedded frameworks, CloudKit data storage and TouchID authentication.

The key new features of iOS 10 and Xcode 8 are also covered in detail, including Swift 3, designing adaptive user interfaces using trait variations, iMessage apps, CloudKit sharing, speech recognition, and Siri integration.

The aim of this book, therefore, is to teach you the skills necessary to build your own apps for iOS 10. Assuming you are ready to download the iOS 10 SDK and Xcode 8, have an Intel-based Mac and ideas for some apps to develop, you are ready to get started.

For iOS 9 Developers

If you have already read the iOS 9 edition of this book, or have experience with the iOS 9 SDK then you might prefer to go directly to the new chapters in this iOS 10 edition of the book.

All chapters have been updated to reflect the changes and features introduced as part of iOS 10, Swift 3 and Xcode 8. Chapters included in this edition that were not contained in the previous edition, or have been significantly rewritten for iOS 10 and Xcode 8 are as follows:

• Using Trait Variations to Design Adaptive iOS 10 User Interfaces • An Introduction to CloudKit Sharing • An iOS 10 CloudKit Sharing Example • iOS 10 Animation using UIViewPropertyAnimator • An iOS 10 Local Notification Tutorial • An Introduction to Building iOS 10 Message Apps • An iOS 10 Interactive Message App Tutorial • An iOS 10 Speech Recognition Tutorial • An iOS 10 Real-Time Speech Recognition Tutorial • An Introduction to SiriKit • An iOS 10 Example SiriKit Messaging Extension • An iOS 10 SiriKit Photo Search Tutorial

In addition, the following changes have also been made:

• All chapters have been updated where necessary to reflect the changes made to Xcode 8. • All chapters and examples have been rewritten where necessary to use Swift 3 syntax. • The CloudKit chapters have been updated to use the new CloudKit API calls.
