When we are working with Integrated Development Kit(IDE) like Xcode, Eclipse, PyCharm etc, Short cuts will help you a lot and increases productivity. So here are the some of the short cuts which will be very useful for the Xcode. When developing iOS application these Xcode short cuts will help you a lot

Xcode is organized into four blocks as below

1. Navigation Area: where all the project files will be displayed in hierarchal order 
2. Editing Area: Where we can add/edit our source code to the files and this will be always visible most of the time, and no need to hide this area.
3. Debug Area: Where we can check the logs/message and stack frames when using break points
4. Utility Area: where we can find the properties of the UI elements and widgets etc.

Special keys on Mac Laptop: Short cuts are combination of multiple keys mostly special keys and characters and numbers.

⌘ - Command, Cmd
⌃ - Control, Ctrl
⌥ - Alt, Option, Opt
⇧ - Shift
