The two detail views' life cycle


During the testing I did for the challenges, I noticed that the two views only get instantiated once and loadView only seems to be called once. Is this accurate or am I not understanding the events properly?

Also, does one ever subclass splitViewController to manage the application? Not sure if this would even help or make things easier. I suppose I’m asking because I just don’t have a good feeling for the SVC. Maybe I just need to play around a bit.
