The problem is only exacerbated in iOS development because the environment (read UIKit) actually discourages clean dependency injection principles (we’ll get to what this means and how to work around it). In reality dependency injection is incredibly simple. In reality, its the type of thing that anyone who has been coding the “wrong” way for any…
