Learn UIKit or SwiftUI

Forums > Swift

Most videos and articles I see are on SwiftUI, is UIkit getting redundant? Which should we pick up?

Go for SwiftUI when learning; start adding UIKit as and when you need it.


This depends a lot on whether you want to find iOS dev job or not. Most "pro" apps are in UIKit and no one is going to pay to throw them away and rewrite in SwiftUI.

If this is hobby, then SwiftUI is fine choice.
