Add a new file to a project or workspace using the File Template library. This library offers a convenient way to create files in your project or workspace.
The video illustrates using a template from the File Template library to add an Objective-C class to a project. Note that the library button is labeled with a file icon.

.m) file and the header (
.h) file for the new Objective-C class.
