The new programming language from Apple is being released

Swift is what many Apple developers are going to be switching to now, with much of Apple’s official support making the move and encouraging users to take advantage of the new features that it has to offer, but what do programmers think?

There were sighs during the announcement, as many people are always wary of having to learn a new language for such a specific purpose, but there is reason to think that it will be highly beneficial. It is going to be able to work in a similar way to Objective C, although it is its own code. In fact, it is much simpler overall and will save a lot of code, due to the ability to chain commands together in a single line, compared to creating different commands for every process. This is something that has programmers hopeful.

They are optimistic about the overall goal of Swift especially. Making things simpler and more secure at the same time is the goal of any new programming language, so there will be complaints there. This is especially helpful since there will be so many interconnected features in the next iOS update, which could potentially come with their own security threats.

Swift won’t be immediately replacing Objective-C entirely, although it is expected to be phased in over the next couple of years.
