Welcome

Hi, I'm Simon Allardice and this is iOS 7 SDK New Features. If you're a current iOS developer, this will bring you up to speed on the things that you need to know about this latest version of the SDK. And the first thing we'll see is the major new release of X Code, X Code 5. Very easy to start using with a simplified interface, but it has a few features you might miss if you don't know where to look. But the biggest change in iOS 7 is of course the complete overhaul of the iOS user interface. We'll see how to create simpler designs with different options for layout and focus on clarity.

And while iOS 7 looks flat, that's a little deceptive. We'll examine using translucency and layering to add depth so your app can really look and feel like it belongs on iOS 7. So we'll cover some great new options in multitasking. Cover new features in Objective C. Talk about 64-bit support, new with the iPhone 5S. And we'll go over the new and improved frameworks in iOS 7. >> Not much longer now. >> So let's get started.

There are currently no FAQs about iOS 7 SDK New Features.
