Add a Scene Delegate to your existing project with Storyboard in Swift

To add a scene delegate, first, create a new Swift file that you’ll call "SceneDelegate" containing a subclass of UIResponder, just like the AppDelegate, and that conforms to UIWindowSceneDelegate. 

As your app might supports other versions than iOS 13, make this class only available for iOS 13. This is what you should have :

If you are working a project that is storyboard based,

please set storyboard initial view controller


import UIKit

@available(iOS 13.0, *)

class SceneDelegate: UIResponder, UIWindowSceneDelegate {

    var window: UIWindow?

    func scene(_ scene: UIScene, willConnectTo session: UISceneSession, options connectionOptions: UIScene.ConnectionOptions) {


        let storyboard = UIStoryboard(name: "Main", bundle: nil)

        let initialViewController = storyboard.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "ViewController")

        let mainNavigationController = UINavigationController(rootViewController: initialViewController)

                self.window?.rootViewController = mainNavigationController


                 guard let _ = (scene as? UIWindowScene) else { return }


                if let windowScene = scene as? UIWindowScene {

                    self.window = UIWindow(windowScene: windowScene)


                    self.window!.rootViewController = mainNavigationController




    func sceneDidDisconnect(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called as the scene is being released by the system.

        // This occurs shortly after the scene enters the background, or when its session is discarded.

        // Release any resources associated with this scene that can be re-created the next time the scene connects.

        // The scene may re-connect later, as its session was not necessarily discarded (see `application:didDiscardSceneSessions` instead).


    func sceneDidBecomeActive(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called when the scene has moved from an inactive state to an active state.

        // Use this method to restart any tasks that were paused (or not yet started) when the scene was inactive.


    func sceneWillResignActive(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called when the scene will move from an active state to an inactive state.

        // This may occur due to temporary interruptions (ex. an incoming phone call).


    func sceneWillEnterForeground(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called as the scene transitions from the background to the foreground.

        // Use this method to undo the changes made on entering the background.


    func sceneDidEnterBackground(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called as the scene transitions from the foreground to the background.

        // Use this method to save data, release shared resources, and store enough scene-specific state information

        // to restore the scene back to its current state.





import UIKit


@available(iOS 13.0, *)

class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate {

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {

        // Override point for customization after application launch.

        return true


    // MARK: UISceneSession Lifecycle

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, configurationForConnecting connectingSceneSession: UISceneSession, options: UIScene.ConnectionOptions) -> UISceneConfiguration {

        // Called when a new scene session is being created.

        // Use this method to select a configuration to create the new scene with.

        return UISceneConfiguration(name: "Default Configuration", sessionRole: connectingSceneSession.role)


    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didDiscardSceneSessions sceneSessions: Set<UISceneSession>) {

        // Called when the user discards a scene session.

        // If any sessions were discarded while the application was not running, this will be called shortly after application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions.

        // Use this method to release any resources that were specific to the discarded scenes, as they will not return.



Just go in your info.plist file and add these lines :

                    <string>Default Configuration</string>

                    <key>Storyboard Name</key>

How to Use Multiple Sections in UITableView iOS Swift !

Multiple sections in UITableView iOS Swift. UITableView is very important part of iOS ecosystem. So we split tableviews in sections. Then its easier to find right information.  1. First let’s create a project as usual. Create a new single view application X code project. Set project name to UIViewController.  2. Go to main storyboard & select view controller & use UITableView 3. Select tableview & make it initial view controller  4 Create a custom Sections Class like Name => TableSections, create register cell static return “ getCellNibs ” method. Then create  4 section enum “TableItems” then after append all sections to an array model. import UIKit struct CellNib {      static func getCellNibs () -> [ String ] {          return [ "Cell1" , "Cell2" , "Cell3" , "Cell4" ]     } } enum TableItems : Int {      case TableSections1      case TableSections2      case TableSections3      case TableSections4 } class TableSec
