Yes it is possible with the method:
- (void)setViewControllers:(NSArray *)viewControllers direction:(UIPageViewControllerNavigationDirection)direction animated:(BOOL)animated completion:(void (^)(BOOL finished))completion;`
That is the same method used for setting up the first view controller on the page. Similar, you can use it to go to other pages.
viewControllers is an array, and not a single view controller?
That’s because a page view controller could have a “spine” (like in iBooks), displaying 2 pages of content at a time. If you display 1 page of content at a time, then just pass in a 1-element array.
An example in Swift:
pageContainer.setViewControllers([displayThisViewController], direction: .Forward, animated: true, completion: nil)
