One thing about being off wandering while everybody else is getting up to speed on a new iOS, hey they’ve got all their writeups ready for you to read when you get back. And my my, there are quite a lot this time around!
TL;DR – Head over to chez Wenderlich and pick up iOS 7 by Tutorials. This series has been a great one-stop for not overlooking anything worth attention since iOS5, and this latest 823 page magnum opus keeps up that tradition. (Or, if you feel like freeloading, check out the free samples: UIKit Dynamics Tutorial, What’s New in Objective-C and Foundation, Text Kit Tutorial, How to Update Your App for iOS 7.)
Still here with lots of time to read? Well, good. You’ll need it!
First up, these objc.io guys are getting better every issue — most attempts along these lines peter out well before issue #5 — and October’s issue is an iOS 7 collection:
- Getting to Know TextKit
- UICollectionView + UIKit Dynamics
- View Controller Transitions
- From NSURLConnection to NSURLSession
- Multitasking in iOS 7
- iOS 7: Hidden Gems and Workarounds
- Re-Designing an app for iOS 7
And if you’re looking for design tips, there’s plenty in that UI Design for iOS 7 collection we started back when that was new.
