Learn how to build apps using Apple’s native APIs for the Internet of Things, including the Apple Watch, HomeKit, and Apple Pay. You'll also see how to interface with popular third-party hardware such as the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and the FitBit family of devices.Program the Internet of Things with Swift and iOS is an update to the previous version and includes all new Swift 4 code. This book is a detailed tutorial that provides a detailed "how" and "why" for each topic, explaining Apple-specific design patterns as they come up and pulling lessons from other popular apps. To help you getting up and running quickly, each chapter is framed within a working project, allowing you to use the sample code directly in your apps. The Internet of Things is not limited to Apple devices alone, so this book also explains how to interface with popular third-party hardware devices, such as the Fitbit and Raspberry Pi, and generic interfaces, like Restful API’s and HTTPS. You'll also review new API's like Face ID and new design considerations, and look more closely at SSL and how to make IoT connected apps more resistant to hackers. The coverage of Apple Watch has been expanded as well. The Internet of Things is waiting — be a part of it! What You'll LearnUse Apple's native IoT Frameworks, such as HealthKit, HomeKit, and FaceID Interact with popular third-party hardware, such as the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and FitBit Work with real projects to develop skills based in experience Make a smarter IoT with SiriKit and CoreMLWho This Book Is For The primary audience for this book are readers who have a grasp of the basics of iOS development and are looking to improve their Internet of Things-specific skills. Intermediate to Advanced level. The secondary audience would be business decision makers (managers, business analysts, executives) who are looking to gain a rough understanding of what is involved in Internet of Things development for iOS.

Build full-stack shopping list applications from scratch for web and mobile platforms using Xcode, Vapor, and Swift Key Features Build, package, and deploy an end-to-end app solution for mobile and web with Swift 4 Increase developer productivity by creating reusable client and server components Develop backend services for your apps and websites using Vapor framework Book Description Making Swift an open-source language enabled it to share code between a native app and a server. Building a scalable and secure server backend opens up new possibilities, such as building an entire application written in one language—Swift. This book gives you a detailed walk-through of tasks such as developing a native shopping list app with Swift and creating a full-stack backend using Vapor (which serves as an API server for the mobile app). You'll also discover how to build a web server to support dynamic web pages in browsers, thereby creating a rich application experience. You’ll begin by planning and then building a native iOS app using Swift. Then, you'll get to grips with building web pages and creating web views of your native app using Vapor. To put things into perspective, you'll learn how to build an entire full-stack web application and an API server for your native mobile app, followed by learning how to deploy the app to the cloud, and add registration and authentication to it. Once you get acquainted with creating applications, you'll build a tvOS version of the shopping list app and explore how easy is it to create an app for a different platform with maximum code shareability. Towards the end, you’ll also learn how to create an entire app for different platforms in Swift, thus enhancing your productivity. What you will learn Get accustomed to server-side programming as well as the Vapor framework Learn how to build a RESTful API Make network requests from your app and handle error states when a network request fails Deploy your app to Heroku using the CLI command Write a test for the Vapor backend Create a tvOS version of your shopping list app and explore code-sharing with an iOS platform Add registration and authentication so that users can have their own shopping lists Who this book is for This book is for developers who are looking to build full-stack web and native mobile applications using Swift. An understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript would be beneficial when building server-rendered pages with Vapor.

If you want to become an iOS developer, you have made an excellent choice with this book. Swift holds a significant position in the iOS industry because of the long list of features it serves. It is user-friendly, has great community support, and offers a greater extent of customization. As a result, we can observe a sharp increase in the market demand for developing Apple mobile applications, and with that, companies search for smart developers with the right skill set. Mastering Swift introduces Apple’s excellent Swift standard library style and incorporates usage feedback across multiple Swift projects. However, it should be regarded as a living, changeable document and the basis upon which the programming language is implemented. Before going further into the details of the Swift programming language, the book briefly explains the basic information about the language. It is a high-level language created to develop multifaceted iOS applications that cater to diverse needs of different social and business domains. It is meant to develop high-end apps with multiple complexities. But since it is very close to Objective C, it is easy to code and understand. This feature also makes it incredibly friendly to beginners. Moreover, it is equally compatible with the iPhone, the iPad, Apple Watch, MacBook, and Apple TV, and it can be applied to develop equally efficient and scalable apps for them. This book in the Mastering series encircles all the essential aspects of Swift and explores why this programming language is the future for iOS app development. Different from other languages, it requires fewer lines to activate any feature. This paves the way for a shorter development cycle and saves a lot of precious resources. Further, as one of the most reliable iOS programming languages it supports dynamic libraries that indicate executable bits of code that you can link to an application. Because of such support, Swift apps can interoperate with the newest version of the language to make the app irreplaceable. Swift is a language that was not designed but deliberately made open source so as to invite community input, allowing the product to grow and to mature over the years. This could possibly be the most crucial aspect of Swift. As people become more aware of its potential to be used in servers, web frameworks were more willing to support the demand. Owing to its popularity and significance, its adoption rate in Apple’s rivals remains very high. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, if you are planning for iOS app development through Swift, this book can help with the high-domain expertise and experienced resources. Without a doubt, the developers that create native apps are not going to abandon Swift anytime soon. However, it seems like something must evolve for it to keep growing constantly. We believe that Swift is indeed the future for iOS app developers. And if you are convinced and want to start learning the programming language right away, then this book is what you’re looking for.
