Apple manages to earn nearly 87 percent of the entire revenue. Therefore IOS has always proved its worth in the market of smartphone technology. WWDC 2014 held in June marked an important event in the history of Apple as the Cupertino rooted company launched an important programming language that had a clear aim of rendering user friendly apps with the least loopholes presented with the Objective-C language. The language takes features from Java and Python. The code is simple and dense. That is what there are less chances of bugs as more effort is required to put the code into pieces. A blog has also been launched to discuss the merits and demerits of the language. Also the code can further be modified. Several libraries will be added by developers and all such changes can be discussed over the blog to improve as well as popularise the language.

There are still several utilities to be fixed so that the old apps made in Objective C are able to run along with those using the language, Swift. All such changes need to be deployed by the developers. The first page on this blog was regarding compatibility of application created using Xcode versions and Swift, and also the third party frameworks. Swift is potentially deemed to be better than Objective C as it has taken several features from Python. There is extensive use of native methods and access to Cocoa methods frameworks is also another extended feature.

There are several other features associated with the language :

  • It takes features from C as well as Objective C without being compatible to C programming language. Also it is easy to learn and code. Also it has backend support to Cocoa and Cocoa Touch Frameworks that makes it more fun to work in.

  • It has simplified memory management with Automatic Reference Counting (ARC). Also it is new to programmers where there is compatibility of system programming along with scripting capabilities. Therefore there is added interest and zest dwelling in the language.

Xcode comes with an inbuilt debugging console where the code module can be tested with the running app. The testing environment could be the coding screen or the terminal can be used for seeing results. This REPL ( Read- Eval- Print – Loop ) is an important feature of Swift that it inherits from many of the most successful industrially incorporated languages. The language is overall deemed to be one of the most successful language to be implemented for Apple products development. Rest several libraries must be added by developers for the enhancement of this language. New apps will come along with IOS 8, therefore a close integration with the OS as well as the existing apps are required. Many changes will come over as developers delve deep into its implementation for creativity as well as commercial purposes. Developers who love brevity are very much in favor of Swift and look forward to Apple witnessing greater business heights with the right use of the language.
