Now it is time to look at a new view:
PhaseAnimator. If you have been playing around with this new toy, you may have noticed there is also a

SectorMark represents a slice of the pie and comes with various properties for configuring the visual look of it. What we’ll be building is a pie chart on which we can tap, and then the sector or slice is animating to a larger size.
Reusability and duplication are tough to balance. What if I told you that, sometimes, you don’t have to? In this article, we are going to get philosophical about the purpose of components. This allows you to deliver features that are more reusable with little risk.
TipKit is a framework introduced by Apple at WWDC 2023 that allows you to easily display tips in your applications. It can be used to introduce new features to users, help them discover hidden options, or demonstrate faster ways to accomplish tasks, among other scenarios.
In this article, we will discuss some advanced topics related to TipKit, such as how to fully customize the Tip view (without using TipView and popoverTip), how to use TipKit in UIKit, and how TipKit can share data between different applications. Finally, we will try to answer some common questions related to TipKit.
