Hello guys, how are you doing? Are you thinking about learning iOS and Swift to become an iOS App developer and create that next app or game that rocks the world? If that’s true then you have come to the right place.

In this article, I am going to share some of the very best online courses to learn iOS 15 and Swift in 2024 and become the start iOS App developer you always wanted to be.

Last Year, I focused mainly on the Web Development side and spent time learning React, Angular, and Node JS but this year one of my goals is to explore the mobile world, particularly iOS and Android.

At least that’s a thought for now and I am not sure how long I can go given the limited time I get to upgrade myself but I’ll try my best.

Btw, if you also have the same goal and want to become an iOS developer in-depth then you should start your journey by learning iOS 15, the latest version of Apple’s Operating system which runs on iPhone and iPad, and Swift 4, Apple’s programming language for creating iOS apps.

One of the important things in achieving goals is making a plan and having the right resources to achieve them. So, I started doing some research on the best way to learn iOS 15 and found that there is no better way than joining a good online course.

I first thought about in-person boot camps but the cost and time commitment was high and I don’t know I could make it. Online courses address both those issues, first, they are way more affordable than classroom training or an in-person Bootcamp class (Compare 1000$ to $10, yes they are that cheap), and second, there is no time commitment.

You don’t need to travel to attend any class at any particular time. You can learn whenever you have some time. If you have a smartphone and a good internet connection, you can even watch these courses while commuting, well that’s what I do and it works really great for me.

You can also learn from the comfort of your office and home and that’s why I thought that online courses are the best way to learn not just iOS 15 or Swift 5 but any new technology.

Though, the biggest challenge with online courses is choosing the right course.

The Internet is full of online courses both free and paid but not all of them are of good quality.

If you end-up enrolling into a mediocre course then you will waste a lot of your time and sometime even may get bored and discouraged to learn.

That’s why in this article I am going to share some of the best online courses to learn iOS 15 and Swift 5. You can choose any of these courses, my personal favorite is iOS Bootcamp to kick-start your journey.

Top 5 iOS and Swift Online Courses for Beginners

Before I share online courses to learn iOS 15 and Swift 5, let’s talk a bit about iOS 15 itself.

The iOS 15 is the latest major release of the iOS mobile operating system developed by Apple which runs on their iPad and iPhone.

The best thing is that it comes with some really cutting edge technology and API which allows you to create some really impressive and awesome apps like Pokemon Go. The technology I am talking about includes Core ML 2 and ARKit 2, Apple’s machine learning and Augmented reality API.

It’s important to choose the course which explains these two key API in good detail, particularly, if you want to create an awesome modern app.

1. The iOS 15 & Swift 5 — The Complete iOS App Development Bootcamp by Angela Yu

In one word, this is probably the world’s best iOS developer course out there. It’s so good that it even inspires me to create a course, that’s another story but it’s a damn good course.

The instructor Angela Yu is very experienced and enthusiastic. She teaches iOS development on Bootcamp and this course is an online version of those Botocamps which cost anywhere between $8000 to $12000.

This course is very well structured, well explained, and well delivered. Content is awesome and excellent use of animation and graphics makes it easy to understand new iOS concepts like Core ML 2 and ARKit 2.

The course is also very comprehensive with 524 lectures and over 55.5 hours of material, but don’t worry you won’t get bored. It’s also very hands-on and you will develop almost 25 apps, yes, you read it right 25 apps which include your own Pokemon go, a Harry Potter-style Newspaper app, and a lot more.

They also provide free graphics and other material worth $5000 which you would need to create some professional apps and I got all this in just $13, would you believe that.

Well, that’s why I like Udemy. You get the online version of a Bootcamp course which costs around $12000 in just $10 and that too for a lifetime.

Talking about the social proof, the course has got 4.7 ratings from close to 41000 students which are really impressive. In short, the best course to learn iOS 15 and Swift 5 in-depth and you probably won’t need any more courses if you complete this. Her course on Web Development “The Complete 2024 Web Development Bootcamp” is also equally good and if your focus is on the web dev side, you will love that as well.
