It’s been some time since I posted an update to the iOS 5 tutorial section areas on this site.
This latest update includes a complete course on the basics of iOS development, some very straightforward storyboard tutorials great for beginners, and a good guide on the problems you can run into when migrating your code to ARC when using the migration feature in Xcode.
1. The course is from Apple and Stanford that recently ended in late December so if you checked it out previously all the lectures are now available. Stanford has placed several versions of this course on iTunes. This latest edition utilizes iOS 5 and covers the same basics covered within the previous course, but utilizes the new Xcode Storyboard tool, and covers new iOS 5 features such as iCloud.
You can find the course on iTunes here.
2. The new added Storyboard tutorials include a good set of guides from Matt Campbell. What I like about these tutorials is that they are very easy to follow. If you’re new to Storyboards and having trouble following other tutorials the screenshots in these tutorials can be very helpful.
You can find Matt’s tutorials here.
3. The latest automatic reference counting (ARC) tutorial added was created by Mugunth Kumar. If you’ve tried migrating existing code to use ARC then you’ve likely run into numerous problems. I’ve mentioned tutorials on using the migration tool in the past, but this tutorial goes into more specifics on the different issues that you can run into.
You can find Mugunth’s tutorial here.
You can visit the iOS 5 SDK tutorials page for all tutorials. I added several more, but those three were my favorites.
