iOS (iPhone and iPad Development – Apple) in Swift for iOS 12 and Xcode 10 – Swift 4.1 Training Course Training Course


This 5 day course is for developers who want to learn how to develop applications for iPhone and iPad running iOS 11. Xcode 9, Swift 4 and iOS 11 introduced significant changes in the way applications are written.

The course is hands on and shows how to develop applications from scratch using the Swift programming language and the Xcode 9 IDE.

During the course a fully functional application will be developed from scratch using Swift.

This course can only be run on Apple hardware such as a MacBook Pro or a Mac Mini.

Delegates need to have registered with Apple and have an Apple ID which is required to download software – Xcode.

Delegates wishing to run the applications developed during the course on an iPhone or iPad using a USB cable will need to register their device with Xcode.

Delegate must be able to understand all basics of Swift after this and course and should be able to make any kind of application in iOS and dig into more complex applications on iOS


You must have at least one programming language experience in the past.
