Animating Views in Swift

Updated 30 November 2023


Animation is a method in which elements of a scene are used as moving images for viewers. If you need good design in the app then, it is the mandatory part of the app.

To animate your changes, create a UIViewPropertyAnimator object and use its handler block to change the values of your view’s properties.
