iPhone Development Course

What’s New in IOS 11, Swift 4 and Xcode 9

In this course you are going to learn some of the new features added to iOS 11 and Xcode 9. We are going to create multiple apps that focus on each of the new features. Some of these new features include;

New Xcode Features

Xcode has lots of new features and we’ll be taking a look at some of the new exciting features and how to take advantage of them to make you a better coder. These features include structure highlighting, method extraction, easy renaming, github integration etc.


Artificial Reality app used to take thousands of lines of code and complex algorithm to achieve but with the new iOS 11 ARkit, it takes only few lines of code to make an AR app.

Machine Learning

Machine learning is gaining traction in the computer industry and there’s no better time to learn machine learning and how to develop an app that take advantage of it. We’ll develop a simple app that can recognise dominant object in a photo and an app that can recognise the faces of the people in a photo

Drag and Drop

iOS 11 allows user to drag and drop content within one app and also between two different apps. We’ll develop a basic app that allows dragging text from one part to another part.


We’ll develop an app that allows you to track real world object directly through your phone’s camera. This is a nice feature.

Many more.

We’ll be diving into Natural Language Processing, SiriKit, PDFKit, Apple Music integration, new camera APIs, new Files app and so on…

Now’s the best time to learn iOS 11, Swift 4 and Xcode now before the official release of the public version to the users.

Freelance Developer with over 120 Apps Developed

Dee has developed over 120 apps for clients, including both individuals and start-ups, from around the world. The apps range from basic to very complex, some of which can be found on his website. Dee’s passion for computer programming began in 2006 with his first contact with Java programming language. He continued to learn different languages, including Microsoft ASP.NET, Ruby on Rails, C#, some PHP and HTML and CSS. Dee briefly pursued a MCSE (Microsoft Certified System Engineer) certification before he decided he wanted to become a full-time programmer. He achieved a Microsoft Certified Professional status. For the last 4 years, Dee has been programming the iPhone using Objective-C and Swift language

In 2013, Dee decided to further his education in Software Development by earning a distinction in his Masters of Software Engineering degree from Queen Mary University. He graduated with a 1st class in BSc Computing in his first degree. 

One of Dee’s passions is tutoring. His first YouTube channel video tutorial was uploaded in 2007 where he was teaching PHP, but he later created Microsoft ASP.NET video tutorials and Visual Studios. He has a genuine interest in ensuring that learners understand whatever topic is being presented. 

Dee currently resides in the UK as a freelancer. He prides himself on his creativity in taking customers ideas from the paper to the app store. Two of the apps he developed received funding from angel investors and he is a co-founder of a New Zealand start-up currently valued at over $1 million. 

You can be assured of Dee’s courses and credentials. His dedication and commitment to his work and support will be of exceptional quality and he can teach you how to become an app developer. See you inside.

Lead Software Engineer, Dev Trainer (17 courses,12k reviews)

With nearly 20 years of programming and software development experience, I started out teaching myself programming while in High School. I put myself through college working for a local Internet Service Provider as a programmer. Before finishing college, I developed and sold an award winning website to a Dot-Com start-up. After college, I have worked at several companies ranging from start-ups to large enterprises focusing on Java and client-side technologies (HTML/CSS/JavaScript). Throughout my career, I have opportunity to learn many software development best practices and exposure to several version control systems.
