Web Views display web content. They can be used to load a web page, or even load and render an HTML string. This movie shows how to create and layout Web Views in Xcode 7, and how to use them to display remote web pages. The movie also explains security issues that arise when using web views, and how to grant your app the appropriate permissions to load remote data.
