What should I do about the sub-class?

Mr. Turner said in this video to name the sub class in the new file you make "Shapes" but in the version i'm using (5.1.1) they give you 3 options to choose from and you can't name your own . what do I do?

I'm using the same version. Right click the project folder and select "New File.." and then select "Objective=C class" from the iOS section. Click next, and in the first field, call it "Button" or whatever shape you're making. In the second field, type in "Shape" because Button will be a sub class of Shape.

Click next and create, and you're all set.

1st field would be Class Name 2nd field would be which class it inherits from (i.e. what subclass it is of)
