In the previous section, we saw how animation works with CoreAnimation. iOS provides us with another mechanism for animation, which is the animation with UIKit framework. Animating UIViews can be done by animating their layers with CoreAnimation or animating the view itself using the animation APIs provided in the UIKit framework, especially in the UIView class.

How to do it...

To animate UIViews, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a new Xcode project with the Master-Details template and name it UIViewAnimation.

  3. We will change the native animation of the navigation controller that you see when you push and pop between view controllers.

  4. Now, let's create a new Swift file. Name the file NavigationFlipAnimator to create a class with the name NavigationFlipAnimator...
