iOS Frame vs. Bounds

Observation for users of Xcode8 Beta/Swift 3

Wanted to share an observation that may save others some time that had me scratching my head. For some reason both my imageView frame and bounds size (width and height) were returned as (0, 0) using a print command. This also occurred with the project files. i eventually fired up Xcode 7 as a comparison and the issue did not occur.

I don't know if this a temporary detail related to Beta but it seems that viewDidLoad() sequences/reads the view hierarchy differently than Xcode7 (?). As a workaround I used viewDidAppear() and the print/log showed the proper dimensions for the imageView frame and bounds properties.
