This is just a quick note to let you guys know that our Introduction to MapKit on iOS Tutorial has been fully updated for iOS 5!

This update was made by one of our newest iOS Tutorial Team members, Malek Trabelsi. He added support for the latest iOS 5 APIs such as Storyboards and ARC, and fixed an issue with the data set used by the prior tutorial.

As you guys know, we have a ton of tutorials on this site written prior to iOS 5, and we’re trying to get them up-to-date one small bit at a time :]

Thanks and enjoy the updated MapKit tutorial!
