It's not just about the theory or syntax of Swift. Just like our beginner book, this intermediate book (over 450 pages) will help you learn the new APIs introduced in iOS 8/9/10 in a practical way. You will learn by writing code. As you follow the book to build apps, you will learn the new features of Swift and iOS SDK along the way.
Learn how to build a full-screen camera and barcode/QR code scanner.
Each chapter covers a feature (or two) with in-depth code samples and hands-on exercises.
Learn how to display banner ads using Google AdMob.
We'll teach you how to implement a video camera, and record/playback audio.

The book is fully up-to-date for Xcode 8 and Swift 3. We understand Swift is still evolving. Whenever Apple releases a new version of Xcode (e.g. 8.x), you will receive a 1-year free update of the book.

I love the new book Intermediate iOS Programming with Swift. I feel it is the best way for experienced Objective-C developers to jump in and learn Swift. The book is beautifully designed and easy to understand.
