You should look at Size Classes concept. For example, watch this video on youtube to understand how it works.

Also you can setup your constraints programmatically after rotation:

override func viewWillTransitionToSize(size: CGSize, withTransitionCoordinator coordinator: UIViewControllerTransitionCoordinator) {
        super.viewWillTransitionToSize(size, withTransitionCoordinator: coordinator)

        if (UIDevice.currentDevice().orientation.isLandscape) {
            // ------ Landscape -----
            // Setup constraints

        } else {
            // ----- Portrait -----
            // Setup constraints

I am also developing an iOS app, so I understand your problem.

The application doesn't get resized.

The buttons/labels won't be put wherever they should be as Xcode doesn't know where to put them. This is because the screen size varies with each device.

You should use constraints (really good tutorial) to put your buttons/labels wherever you want them to be. Another good tutorial

Make sure to place the constraints exactly to your view controller size, here is more how to do so video
