Frameworks and Swift

Hi. I'm new to IOS development. I want to know more about frameworks in IOS development and what they're used for. I do have a little bit of web development background so please try to use web dev. for examples. For example there are JavaScript frameworks such as AngularJS and whatnot. Thanks

Frameworks in Swift are exactly the same concept as frameworks in JavaScript. They're a collection of useful code to make it easier for you to get stuff done faster. For example, you know how Angular is meant to help you build UIs faster and better? So are frameworks like UIKit and PureLayout on iOS. Same concept, different language
