This is just a quick note that our How To Create a Simple iPhone App tutorial series is now fully updated for iOS 5.

It has the following updates:

  • Uses Storyboards instead of XIBs
  • Uses new Xcode shortcuts to create outlets, set icons/screenshots/etc.
  • Uses ARC instead of manual reference counting
  • Uses GCD and blocks for asynchronous tasks
  • Uses new project templates
  • Switched out HUD library with the one we use in iOS 5 by Tutorials

This tutorial is a good introduction to those completely new to iOS development, who want a quick taste of what’s involved in making an app.

A good follow-up to this tutorial is Matthijs Holleman’s iOS Apprentice Series, or some of the many other tutorials on this site.

Hope you (or your friends trying to learn iOS development) enjoy! :]
