Episode 3 - Auto Layout and iPhone X Safe Areas

Running time: ~26 minutes

Author's Description:

Safe Areas inside the iPhone X are meant to help you layout your views correctly so they don't fall underneath the notch areas of your screen. Today we discuss the technique of anchoring on our UIViewController's safe areas using layout guides. In addition, I'll go over how to use a UIStackView to make our lives a lot easier in terms of adding in buttons at the bottom. Have fun.
