With the introduction of iOS 7 I mentioned a nice set of tutorials covering many new aspects of the iOS 7 SDK from Sam Davies of Shinobi Controls.

Now with the introduction of iOS 8 here’s another large set of mini-tutorials and code snippets from Sam on many of the new and updated features of the iOS 8 SDK.

The tutorials explain many aspects of Swift, Xcode 6, and the basics of new APIs such as HealthKit and UIVisualEffects, and the source code has been updated to work with the latest iOS 8 SDK releases.

Some of the topics covered in the tutorials include:

A quick Swift beginners guide
Xcode 6 Playground Basics
Using HealthKit
Creating sharing extensions
Creating Photo editing extensions
Setting up a XIB as a launch screen

In total there are 27 tutorials at the time of this writing.

You can find the tutorials over on the Shinobi Controls website.

Thanks to Andrew for the submission.
