How can I automatic size Collection View cell containing text in iOS 10

I want to make a Collection View like the one made by Apple in this video ( where each cell contains a word of a text in a UILabel, like in the following image.

In the video they use the new

constant for
Collection View with text

What is the best way to do this in iOS 10? How can I use
with Storyboard?


You have to create your own subclass of UICollectionViewFlowLayout and set the Flow Layout object of your Collection View in your Storyboard to this custom class, then write this code in your custom class:

override init() {
    estimatedItemSize = UICollectionViewFlowLayoutAutomaticSize

required init?(coder aDecoder: NSCoder) {
    super.init(coder: aDecoder)

Obviously you have to set the target of your app to iOS 10
