Meanwhile, my other book, Programming iOS 10, is about 3/4 revised for iOS 10 and Swift 3, and you can get the PDF on Early Release. I'll report back here as I finish up the final chapters.

My book, Programming iOS 9, is now finished in Early Release form. That means you can get the complete draft at a lowered price, in electronic form (e.g. PDF), right now. If you get it or have it, please proofread the heck out of it — as I am doing at the moment — and post any issues to the book's Errata page. I expect we'll start final production two weeks from today, so hurry the heck up and find those typos!

Hi Matt! I couldn't even begin to explain how important is your book to me - it has helped me understand so many things, that I could not even have think of. But I was wondering if you could help me understand this excerpt, 

“When a function with an inout parameter is called, the variable whose address was passed as argument to that parameter is always set, even if the function makes no changes to that parameter”

Excerpt From: Matt Neuburg. “iOS 8 Programming Fundamentals with Swift: Swift, Xcode, and Cocoa Basics.” iBooks. 

-- I tried my best to understand this sentence, but i could not understand what you mean by "always set", set to what?

Now revised up through Chapter 17. I can't believe how much of my Photo Kit code Apple managed to break by incorrectly tweaking the Optionals in the APIs; do the people they hire to do this ever use the APIs they are so glibly messing with?
