With yesterday's release of Xcode 9, all 11 books in the Hacking with Swift series have been updated for Swift 4. These updates are available free of charge thanks to the Hacking with Swift lifetime update policy, which guarantees you Swift updates for the life of each book.

If you bought through Gumroad: The book updates are available immediately using your original email receipt. Look for the product download link from Gumroad, and that should take you straight to the updated editions.

If you bought through iBooks: The updates have been submitted to Apple for review and will hopefully be live in the next few days.

  • Pro Swift has been expanded to cover fatalError(), Never, and Swift 4 dictionary improvements.
  • Hacking with watchOS now teaches how to enable auto rotation and Water Lock in your apps.
