  • We assume you are already familiar with iOS development and have done some coding on this platform in the past.

In this Fast Start course we'll look at some of the new features of iOS 7 and Xcode 5.

In less than 2.5 hours, you'll get up to speed and get a bird's eye view in what lies under the hood in Apple's biggest iOS update in 7 years!

The iOS 7 update makes significant changes to the look and feel of apps running on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.

As a developer, you need to be prepared for these changes.

In this course, we assume you are already familiar with iOS development: we will only cover the most important changes and new features of the iOS 7 version of the operating system.

There are a total of 14 videos and each session will have a small quiz and assignment at the end of it. Source code, examples and power points for reference are provided for reference.

Section 1 - In the first session we'll cover the changes that have been made to the look and feel of iOS, along with a discussion of why these changes were made. We'll also take a high level view of the topics covered in the remaining three sessions.

Section 2 - Will cover Airdrop, a new API that allows file sharing between iOS devices. We'll also take a look at some of the changes made to the multitasking APIs.

Section 3 - This will be all about SpriteKit, an exciting new API that simplifies game development using a native 2D graphics engine. We'll also look at some of the changes in the GameKit framework as well as Game Controller integration with apps and devices.

Section 4 - In the final session we'll look at changes made to the Camera APIs: the ability to scan barcodes as well as the capability to shoot 60 FPS video at 720p resolution.
