    First you will be programming in objective c, not Xcode.

    Second read the stickies at the top of the forum.

    Third use the search feature, I'm going to guess there are a few hundred post just like yours.

    Fourth learning to program for the iPhone will require extensive reading.

    Hope this helps.

    I have fourteen apps on the App Store and I haven't read one book. I just looked through some basic sample code, explored Xcode myself, and followed tutorials on YouTube. So basically... I taught myself until I understood how everything worked and then I watched some more advanced tutorials. I realize that that's not everyone's style, but it works best for me, and I can move at my own pace.

    That's like going to the doctor and him saying, "I don't have my degree but I've seen every episode of House." ;) Read the books. Your local library should have some. You might learn some useful stuff you didn't even know you needed. Since you're already in to coding, you'll tear through them and enjoy every bit of it.

    Beginning Mac Programming by Tim Isted is a pretty good book for teaching yourself the basics of Objective C and Cocoa.

    Any book or course from The Nerd Ranch is an excellent start vis-a-vis fundamentals. Maher Ali's book is also an excellent applied book. Finally, learn how to find things in Apple's documentation ... it's good stuff if you don't mind their reinventing of English and it will be like traversing a jungle ... no kidding.
