The App Development with Swift curriculum teaches the programming skills needed to design and build a fully functioning app. App Development with Swift is available as a free download on Apple Books. It’s also now freely available in Canvas Commons, so educators to pull that content into their courses within the Canvas Learning Management Platform.
