Good news – Matthijs Hollemans has updated The iOS Apprentice Series yet again – for Xcode 6.1.1!

Xcode 6.1.1 changed UITableViewCell‘s textLabel and imageView to regular optionals (i.e. ?) rather than the former implicitly unwrapped optionals (i.e. !), so they now require unwrapping with ! or if let.

This change was confusing to beginners, so Matthijs made this minor update so everything still works OK.

Here’s how you can get the update:

  • If you’re an iOS Apprentice PDF customer, you can download the update for free on your My Loot page (version 3.2).
  • If you haven’t picked up a copy of the iOS Apprentice yet, grab your copy now.

Matthijs and I hope you enjoy this update!
