In this book, we take you on a fun, hands-on and pragmatic journey to learning iOS13 application development using Swift. You’ll start building your first iOS app within minutes. Every section is written in a bite-sized manner and straight to the point as I don’t want to waste your time (and most certainly mine) on the content you don’t need. In the end, you will have the skills to create an app and submit it to the app store.
