This caused me some initial issues (mostly to do with a critical warning about the context equaling 0,0) but I finally got a nice tiled background in Sprite Kit. Here’s the code, and just note, that for some odd reason I had issues using the size of the device for the CGSize values in the first line below (maybe big round numbers are preferred, who knows)….

Anyone enrolled in the sequel to my Role Playing Games with Sprite Kit video tutorials will see this code in use (and modified to be used with a Property List).
