I see the material on functions, variables, constants, and such, but I did not come across anything on other major subjects, such as user input in an app, playing sounds and perhaps wav files in an app, and similar subjects that are required in many apps and certainly in games. Where can I learn about how to code these types of items.  Is there a more comprehensive guide?

I would look for resources (books, blogs, etc.) on iOS game programming; much of it will already be in Swift, and even the stuff in Objective-C or C++ will teach principles you can apply to Swift game development.
