Developer program not nessecary anymore

Not a question but: At this moment it is not nessecary to enroll the program anymore to run to app on your iPhone. You can always run your app on your iPhone! You just need it when you will submit your app. Idea to put it in the teachers note?

I think what you mean to say is that the iOS Developer's licensing is no longer necessary to have your own personal iOS apps that you have developed to run on your iPhone(or other Apple device). The Xcode IDE does allow you to transfer the app directly to the phone. The only reason you will need the iOS Developers license is when you want to submit the app to Apple's App Store to make it available to consumers. This is mentioned in the in the Course: iOS Development with Swift 2.0, Tutorial: Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift 2.0. Also I found this section on the support page which might be more helpful when making suggestions for changes to content in treehouse itself instead of posting to the community:

How do I recommend new content/new suggestions?

At this time you can email us at help@teamtreehouse.com with the subject line "Content Suggestion". We review all emails and make note each month of what our students are wanting to see. This helps shape our decisions about content and features in the near future!
