iOS 17 App Development Essentials is a comprehensive guide that blends theory with practice to teach you how to develop iOS 17 apps using Xcode, the Swift programming language, and SwiftUI. It covers everything from the basics of Swift programming to the nuances of app development using SwiftUI and Xcode and even guides you through publishing your completed app on the App Store. Whether a beginner or an experienced programmer, this is the reference book you need to become a proficient iOS app developer.

This book is a comprehensive guide to developing iOS 17 apps using Xcode 15, the Swift programming language, and SwiftUI. It’s aimed at both beginner and experienced programmers and covers all the essential aspects of iOS programming, including detailed tutorials to help you put theory into practice.

For those with limited programming experience, the book starts with chapters on the basics of Swift programming and how to install and use Xcode before moving on to more advanced topics.

The book follows a modular approach, covering fundamental concepts such as creating simple custom views and working with layouts and lists and more advanced topics, including Swift structured concurrency, data persistence using SwiftData and Core Data, working with CloudKit, and building Live Activity widgets.
