In this chapter, we will talk about a very interesting topic in iOS development, which is working with interface builder. Being an iOS developer requires being professional in dealing with interface builder to build your UI and application flow. Even today, I meet iOS developers who don't know anything about interface builder and still build all screens and components programmatically. Using this method wastes your time and makes your Xcode project huge with hundreds of lines of code just to draw the screens. Within time, Apple introduces new devices every year and sometimes with totally new screen sizes. Without using interface builder and Autolayout, your app will not work properly with these screen sizes, and you will have to write new code to handle these new screens. If you're still not convinced about interface builder magic, stay tuned with us in this chapter to see the magic that we can do in UI without writing a single line of code.
