It seems that the new iOS layout stuff is getting in the way and our automatic re-arrangements aren’t working (or at least we were previously locked to a simple compatible view). It is likely to take some time to get this better, but the simulator works well (as does storyboard), so I am working on it…

But these are warnings, so we may get away with them for some time. Mostly deprecated function interfaces that are still working (but maybe dropped at some point in the future). Some date back to IOS 6, so a little scary...

Adding the tab was relatively easy (despite changes in storyboard), but the ‘drop in framework libraries for chat bubbles’ all seem incredibly convoluted. Not 'drop in' at all. I was expecting something to draw the screen for me, and simply give me a method to call to add a chat text message. But, no; these libraries want me to do all the drawing myself. Literally copy-and-paste half a dozen classes from example code, then try to remove dependencies on yet more third party libraries. Good grief… So much more complex than I had hoped, but I am working on it.
