Attributed strings can be a pain to configure the way you want them. The attributes dictionary has always been a dictionary comprised of String-Any pairs. There have been some nice enhancments in iOS 11, though.
If you have played with iOS 11 either on a simulator or on a real device, you have probably noticed that most of the first party apps, such as Mail and Settings, use large titles in the navigation bar. We are going to look at how to implement the same navigation bar behavior in our apps.
The keyboard is an enormously important piece of hardware. The keyboard lets us increase efficiency while using an app by typing faster. It also gives iOS apps the ability to support shortcuts, which increases productivity even more. Common tasks for apps would be greatly benefited by allowing shortcuts, especially on an iPad, by allowing the user to keep their hands on the keyboard.
SiriKit was created for developers in iOS 10. However, there were, and still are, a limited number of intent domains with which you can integrate an app. An intent domain is simply a category of app that can take advantage of Siri. With the release of iOS 11, a few new domains are being made available. This tutorial will walk through implementing SiriKit with the “Lists and Notes” domain, although, the core concepts can be applied to any domain.
At WWDC Apple announced that iOS 11 will now support Drag and Drop. This works not only within an app, but also from one app to another. Dragging between apps is only supported on iPads. This tutorial will walk through how to implement exporting data via Drag and Drop.

Handoff is a neat feature that was introduced in iOS 8 and macOS (then OS X) v10.10. This capability allows an app to pass data across macOS and iOS devices so that a task started on one device can be completed on another device. In this tutorial we will implement Handoff on both iOS and macOS platforms.
