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.

Next, we have our submenu, which contains quick links to other services. Finally, we have basic account information, and this information is based on whether it's a credit card or debit card. Let's get started by opening the starter project.

Home header

You can find the starter project for this chapter in the Chapter06 folder called starter. To get started, open HomeHeaderView. Update the variable previews inside of HomeHeaderView_Previews with the following:

    .previewLayout(.fixed(width: 600, height: 80))

Now, inside of this file, add the following inside of...
