A few weeks ago we launched RW Community Care, which is a series of office hours, livestreams, bootcamps, and more, with the goal of supporting the mobile development community at this time.

Today we’re happy to announce that we’re added something brand new to RW Community Care: free online access to our flagship book for learning iOS development, the iOS Apprentice!

The iOS Apprentice available to read online for free until August 22nd. You can read the book right in your browser — all you need is a free account.

iOS Apprentice teaches you everything you need to know, from complete beginner, right through to building and ship your first iOS apps, in the step-by-step tutorial style you’ve come to trust.

About the iOS Apprentice

The iOS Apprentice is a series of epic-length tutorials for beginners where you’ll learn how to build four complete apps from scratch. Each successive app is a little more advanced than the one before, and put together, they’ll show you everything you need to know to make your own apps and publish them to the App Store!

If you’re new to iOS and Swift, or to programming in general, learning how to write an app can seem incredibly overwhelming. That’s why the iOS Apprentice starts at the very beginning. The first tutorial assumes absolutely zero programming knowledge, but by the end of it, you’ll have built an entire game from scratch.

The iOS Apprentice not only shows you how to build apps the traditional way with UIKit, but it also shows you how to build apps using SwiftUI, Apple’s new declarative way to build app interfaces. You’ll get the best of both worlds: the tried and true old way to build apps, as well as the new, cutting-edge way to build cutting-edge user interfaces for your apps.

And not only that — you’ll get full access to the complete source code for all projects in the book!

If you’ve found yourself with some unexpected extra time on your hands, this might be a great time to finally build your first dream app, or to get started building modern apps using SwiftUI.
