Drag and Drop has arrived in iOS 11! Learn the fundamentals behind the new iOS Drag and Drop – architecture and APIs. This session will go over the design goals, architecture and key components of the API to allow you to quickly adopt Drag and Drop in your App.
Drag and drop seems like a boring feature, but on iOS 11 and the iPad, it’s actually quite interesting and implemented in a novel way. This WWDC session starts with a demo, showing off how you can use multiple fingers to drag multiple things, combine different dragged objects, while still being able to interact with other touch UI elements. Sadly, Apple decided to cripple drag and drop on the iPhone, restricting it to only being able to drag and drop within a single application.
