Swift in Simple Terms
Swift is a compiled programming language developed by Apple. Utilized in iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and Linux, Swift was released in 2014 and is replacing Objective-C as the primary Apple programming language.
Apple (and Swift’s creator Chris Lattner) wanted Swift to support many core concepts associated with Objective-C while making it easier to catch bugs, a core problem they recognized in their legacy platform. Most believe that Swift has accomplished through "protocol-oriented programming" which Apple still promotes as a real change in traditional programming paradigms.
For example, Swift is a type-safe language, meaning the language itself aids clarity about around code’s interaction with certain types of values. Type safety helps you catch and fix errors as early as possible in the development process.
Untold uses Swift on all our new iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, macOS X, and CarPlay software development. Whether that’s enterprise-wide communication tools, augmented reality (AR) prototypes, or community-based apps, our team uses Swift to deliver solutions to clients of all sizes.
