Add a Custom Method addLabel

    UILabel *aLabel = [[UILabel alloc]initWithFrame:
    CGRectMake(20, 200, 280, 80)];
    aLabel.numberOfLines = 0;
    aLabel.textColor = [UIColor blueColor];
    aLabel.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
    aLabel.textAlignment = UITextAlignmentCenter;
    aLabel.text = @"This is a sample text\n of multiple lines.
    here number of lines is not limited.";
    [self.view addSubview:aLabel];

Update viewDidLoad in ViewController.m as follows −

- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];
    //The custom method to create our label is called
    [self addLabel];
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
