Before you begin to write code, you need to understand why security is so essential in today’s modern mobile app. In this course, you will learn about the most common security mistakes developers make when creating apps. You will learn which mobile app vulnerabilities are considered the most dangerous, and what can be done to defend against those dangers. You will explore iOS security architecture, and learn what controls Apple implements at the hardware and software level to protect its platforms. You will also be introduced to Swift, Apple’s new programming language. You will be introduced to the new security features Swift brings to iOS development. You will then wind up this course with an overview of iOS development security best practices.
