Apple "In 2007, software developer Laurent Sansonetti launched an open source software project called MacRuby. It aimed to build a Ruby interpreter on top of the Objective-C runtime, providing a seamless bridge between Ruby and OS X "Cocoa" ecosystemâ€"and it succeeded. Now Sansonetti hopes to do something similar for iOS."

Interface builder generates XIB files, which are external to your code. There's no real advantage to hard coding the UI in your exe. The XIB and compiled NIB live in their own world, and being able to independently edit them (well, maybe not in XCode 4+) is a real advantage. In all of my years using Project Builder, XCode and Interface Builder, I've never felt the need to hardcore the UI. Actually, as my other main dev roe was in Delphi for 8+ years, I pretty much love the idea of externally defined UI. This was the thing I also loved about Qt 3.x when I played with it, and why I always gravitated towards Glade with GTK+

Hahaha! All hardcode all the time!!

Is Apple trying to tell us something when hardcode is corrected to hardcore by the iOS autocorrect?
