Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Why are some iOS courses outdated?
This is my first day using treehouse and I am using the trial version. I am currently going to use this for learning iOS development. I have noticed that the blog reader is still for iOS 6. Why aren't they updated to iOS 7? I thought treehouse keeps updating these regularly. Thanks!

with only a few iOS teachers, its probably hard to go back and update every course available for iOS 7 and produce new content on top of that. the build a simple iphone app and self destructing message app were updated, they may have plans to update the blog reader sometime. But honestly you can do the blog reader app course using iOS 7 just fine. you may run into a few small hiccups but almost everything is the same
Ok, thanks for the very quick reply. Now completely forget about the library videos. I am looking forward to doing the tracks for iOS development. If I pay the subscription, I will get access to the tracks. My question is, On the tracks for iOS, are all those videos updated to iOS 7?

I figured that they still need to record, edit and upload the new iOS 7 videos as there could be some new stuff added into the development tools (Xcode), and when iOS 8 comes out this fall (rumored) they will need to record videos for Apple's new development language, Swift, which I believe is like Java? (Not confirmed.)
Those are my theories on why some iOS courses here are outdated.
Thank you all for your answers. I guess all the courses are updated except the blog reader. Since the first course I checked out was that one, it gave me the impression that all the videos were going to be like that but that's not the case.
