First things first: start by mastering Swift, the programming language for native iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS apps.



The Fundamentals

Now that you’re familiar with Swift, let’s go through the basics of iOS development. First, get an overview of the app structure, memory management, and how to use the IDE. 



The User Interface

To develop the UI of your iOS app, you can use UIKit and/or SwiftUI. UIKit is a well-established framework that has been around for many years and has a large community. SwiftUI is a newer framework focusing on declarative, interactive, and dynamic user interface design.

The choice between them will depend on the specific needs of the project & the experience and preferences of the developer.

Dependency Injection

When it comes to large-scale iOS apps, you need to make the codebase more modular, maintainable, and easier to test. Check out this guide to dependency injection for iOS.



Networking Using URLSession

Next stop: learning about networking in iOS. Almost every app needs to retrieve and/or update data from the backend. The best way to handle this in iOS is using URLSession.



Data Persistence Using Core Data

This section will focus on data persistence. Learn how to make your iOS apps work offline using a powerful framework called Core Data.



Concurrency & Combine

Moving on, let’s tackle concurrency in iOS development. In this section, you will learn how to write declarative, asynchronous code using the Combine framework.



Notifications Using OneSignal

The majority of app owners value local & push notifications very much. The guides below will teach you how to display & schedule notifications via One Signal, one of the most popular solutions available.




As you make changes to your app & add more features, how do you ensure that nothing is broken? Yes, it’s time for testing.



Version Control Using Git

Development is an ongoing process & your app will undergo lots of changes. This course will teach you how to track & manage these changes using Git.



App Release

Are you ready to release your app? Awesome! Find out how to optimize, test, and publish your app. Make sure you abide by the App Store guidelines.




We hope this learning path helps you become a skilled iOS developer. Most importantly, we hope you enjoy the learning process & building awesome mobile apps.
