Add custom methods addSwitch and switched:

-(IBAction)switched:(id)sender{

}
-(void)addSwitch{
    mySwitch = [[UISwitch alloc] init];
    [self.view addSubview:mySwitch];
    mySwitch.center = CGPointMake(150, 200);
    [mySwitch addTarget:self action:@selector(switched:)
    forControlEvents:UIControlEventValueChanged];    
}

Update viewDidLoad in ViewController.m as follows

(void)viewDidLoad
{
   [super viewDidLoad];
   [self addSwitch];
}
