Use XCTest, which Apple provides out of the box with XCode, to test all networking and model layers and plan classes. This is your opportunity to test against several different edge cases since it’s easy to simulate different conditions. Unit testing your controllers is complicated because controllers rely on the UIKit controller life cycle that's not available in the test environment. Therefore, it’s easier to use UI Testing (also provided by Apple with XCode) to write integration tests. Write a few of them covering your happy paths.
Adding your tests on CI and running them automatically on every commit to your mainline branch will help you avoid timely manual tests or a failing app. Your tests will always be up to date and work for you instead of getting in the way.
