Introduction To SwiftUI | Learn SwiftUI


In this SwiftUI series, we are going to learn all about SwiftUI. Here I will give some information about this SwiftUI series, Why I am creating this SwiftUi series, what we are going to learn, and the structure for this series.

What is SwiftUI?

In SwiftUI, UI stands for User Interface, a framework Apple developed for creating screens on an app for any Apple platform like iOS, macOS, watchOS, or tvOS. SwiftUI is actually new for iOS development. It was released in 2019, and since it's been released, Apple has made tons of updates and improvements and added new features. They have made it pretty clear that SwiftUI is going to be the future of iOS App development. I am telling you this because there is a debate on the internet about whether new developers should learn SwiftUI or UiKit.

Uikit vs. SwiftUI

These are both frameworks developed by Apple for creating iOS applications. We can build the same app using UiKit or SwiftUI, but the code we will type will differ. It is important to understand the one we want to use to create our iOS app. In this series, we will not cover UiKit, but this framework was introduced in 2008 with the release of the App Store. If we talk about apps on the App Store, the majority of apps are developed in UiKit, however, if we look at the future, there will be more SwiftUI jobs because newer apps are going to be in SwiftUI. We are discussing it because we must know both iOS development frameworks. 

Future of iOS Development

I know both of these frameworks, and I can confidently tell you that SwiftUI is much easier to learn and much faster to implement. I have created the same app in UiKit and then SwiftUI. In SwiftUI, it takes only one-third amount of the time as UiKit. That's why apple is pushing iOS development to SiwftUI. It is super powerful and easy to use. SwiftUI is very important to learn iOS development, especially if we are looking at the future of iOS development.

Master the basic SwiftUI

This series will be beneficial in mastering the basic foundation of SwiftUI because in SwiftUI if we are good at grasping the basics, we can excel very quickly. We will run into many errors if we start developing apps and complex screens. It is better to get a solid understanding of the basics than create applications in SwiftUI.

SwiftUI series overview

In this series, we are not going to create an iOS application. In this series, we will complete one specific component of SwiftUI. By the end of this series, we will be masters of all individual components in SwiftUI. If we create an iOS app in this way, we will have an understanding of how these components work then we will be only adding these components together to create beautiful apps.


SwiftUI is a very powerful framework and will be in very high demand in the future, so if you are interested in learning SwiftUI, follow this SwiftUI series. I hope you will enjoy it a lot.
