All books in this series are updated to the latest version of iOS and Xcode. Updates are available free of charge!
Most of the books I scanned, even the “Dummies” series, assumed a basic knowledge of computer programming even for iOS beginners. What I like about Kevin’s writing is that he doesn’t make any assumptions – he just takes you there – step by step. - Lorraine Akemann, moms with apps
This second book in the series from Kevin McNeish, winner of the Publishing Innovation Award, highly acclaimed iOS trainer and conference speaker, and award-winning App Developer, is specifically designed to teach non-programmers Objective-C; the language used to create Apps for the iPhone and iPad. This book series assumes you know nothing about programming.
Book 2: Flying with Objective-C builds on what you learned in Book 1: Diving In. In the first two chapters, the author helps you understand basic concepts, such as "what is a class?" and "what is an object?" You then learn how to pass messages to objects, and then create your own custom classes.
As you go through the book, concepts become more advanced until you reach the final chapters on Advanced-Objective-C and Advanced Messaging. Each concept is accompanied by step-by-step instructions to build an App that shows the real-world use of Objective-C programming features. This is a tremendous aid in helping non-programmers grasp even more advanced concepts.
The information in this book is up to date with the latest iOS technologies and the latest version of Xcode!
Includes Step-by-Step Instructional Videos!

I searched a lot to find a book or course to learning Xcode and these series of books are the best one I found.
Without a doubt!
I have struggled for months trying to understand Objective-C, and this book has made it so easy to understand.
Easy to Learn Objective C!
I really like Kevin's teachings in this book! He's given a whole knew take on learning in an easy to understand and unique teaching approach to understanding Apple's native computer language, Objective C, for building apps. This iBook is a must have! Start learning Objective C the way it was meant to be taught. Thanks Kevin.
