What is the hardest stage in developing an app?

The amount of dealings and constrictions that need to be incorporated in the interface builder is quite perplexing in nature. Learning to use Xcode and iTunes Connect is not achievable without pulling your hair up. While developing Xcode, Autolayout is the most difficult to do.
