(exciting music) - [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Simon Allardice and this is iOS 6 SDK New Features. If you've been developing for iOS devices, but working with the features in iOS 5 and before, this course will quickly bring you up to speed on what is available in iOS 6 and how to use it. We'll see the changes to user interface controls in this version of iOS, particularly collection views and what they offer. We'll also explore the changes and improvements in Xcode, things like using Auto-Layout for your user interfaces and the current best practices when creating classes and properties in Obective-C.

You'll see how to create apps that use Apple's new Maps features or how to use Passbook in your own applications for managing passes, tickets, or coupons, see what the social framework offers for Facebook integration. So, let's get started with our look at the new features of the iOS 6 Software Development Kit.
