Using Core Location to Build a Workout Tracking App

  • Ahmed Bakir


In the first chapter, you learned how to use Xcode and Interface Builder to set up the project for the IOTFit workout app and create its user interface. However, dueto the complicated setup process, you did not have an opportunity to make it a true Internet of Things (IoT) app by accessing the GPS hardware on the phone. In this chapter, you will learn how to take advantage of Apple’s Core Location framework to request location permission from the user, receive periodic updates on the user’s location, and plot those locations on a map.
