This chapter introduced the concept of storyboards as a sequence of scenes that are connected with segues, which can either be wired with the GUI or driven programmatically. Finally, Auto Layout can be used to build applications that respond to differences in screen orientation or size, as well as respond to changes in view size or other properties.

The next chapter will present how to create custom views in Swift.
