Overview of this book

Released by Apple during WWDC 2019, SwiftUI provides an innovative and exceptionally simple way to build user interfaces for all Apple platforms with the power of Swift. This practical guide involves six real-world projects built from scratch, with two projects each for iPhone, iPad, and watchOS, built using Swift programming and Xcode. Starting with the basics of SwiftUI, you’ll gradually delve into building these projects. You’ll learn the fundamental concepts of SwiftUI by working with views, layouts, and dynamic types. This SwiftUI book will also help you get hands-on with declarative programming for building apps that can run on multiple platforms. Throughout the book, you’ll work on a chart app (watchOS), NBA draft app (watchOS), financial app (iPhone), Tesla form app (iPhone), sports news app (iPad), and shoe point-of-sale system (iPad), which will enable you to understand the core elements of a SwiftUI project. By the end of the book, you’ll have built fully functional projects for multiple platforms and gained the knowledge required to become a professional SwiftUI developer.

We have come a long way and, hopefully, by now you are comfortable with designing. In this chapter, we will follow along with another design, but you will have plenty of challenges to complete before you get to your biggest design challenge in the book. We will work on making our iPad app work at any orientation and see how we can make our lives easier by prototyping our layout first.

In this chapter, we will be working with the following:

  • Sidebar navigation
  • Resizable content
  • The video player
  • A multi-tasking iPad app

As we have discussed in every design chapter, you can find all of the design specs in the project files:
