Status of iOS Programming 7e

Hello everyone!

I wanted to provide an update on the status of iOS Programming 7e. COVID-19 continues to have impacts on stocking and shipping, which has impacted the release of our 7th Edition. Here’s the good news: the eBook is currently available from InformIT here!

The not-so-good news: because Amazon is (rightly, in my opinion) prioritizing health care items and other essential home goods, our book may not be available in print or for Kindle for some time. We are in contact with Amazon, but we unfortunately do not have a timeline for when they will make the book available. Further, we’re not totally sure when the print edition will be available from InformIT, but it’s likely it will be available there first.

All that said, we continue to be really excited about this edition, as it represents the culmination of a lot of hard work, care, and thoughtful craft. I’m happy to try and answer any questions you might have.

Happy coding!


Great news, thanks! At least one good piece of info in such a situation.

I pre-ordered from InformIT for the ebook/print combo in early April. The printed book shipped on Wednesday and now says on UPS vehicle for delivery today. The ebook still says pre-order when I log in to informIT. Hopefully the ebook will be available soon!

That’s great news @bitmaker . Strange about the eBook. I checked this morning, and it looks like the eBook is available.

Update: Good news! It looks like the print book is now available via InformIT.

Still no update on a timeline for Amazon.

Happy coding!

Amazon sent me a shipping notice today, the book should be arriving Wednesday. Their web site is showing it as In Stock now.
