The hype surrounding the hotly-anticipated iOS 12 has simmered down a bit, but only because it's finally been released and people are too busy tinkering with their iPhones to tweet. (We're guessing.)
Unlike the previous iOS updates, tech critics and casual users are touting iOS 12 as the fastest yet, and get this — even on older phones. Yup, after what seemed like an eternity, it looks to be that the iPhone slowdown fiasco is finally over.
This only means that developers can use this moment as an opportunity to ramp up on app development and take advantage of the enhanced speed and feature upgrades of the new operating system. If you want to get in on the frenzy, these training bundles will help you get familiarized with iOS 12 update so you can start writing your own apps:
Led by top-rated instructor Rob Percival, this 167-lecture course will guide you through the essentials like Swift 4 and Xcode 10 and help you develop practical skills by letting you build several projects for iOS 12, including clones of Uber and Instagram. You'll explore programming fundamentals like variables, arrays, and loops, and dive into iOS 12's AR features with ARKit. Even if you have no idea what those terms are and have never written a line of code before, the easy-to-follow lessons could very well help you become a programming master.
Not only does this learning suite arm you with the skills to develop programs for the iPhone, but it will also teach you how to create apps for watchOS *and* macOS. There are also courses dedicated to UX/UI design, so you can make your apps look beautiful, functional, and user-friendly. After you've finished the training, you'll have all the tools needed to craft apps for different Apple platforms from scratch.
You didn't think we'd let you build an app meant for iOS 12 and not give you the chance to test it on the newest iPhone now did you? We're not rude.
