In the year 2014 Apple introduced a new programming language called “Swift”.
Some of the reasons for the Apple to introduce this particular language was because Swift is fast, safe, modern, and enables a level of interactivity in development. One of the best companies which deliver high quality iOS mobile applications in the UAE are Meridian Solutions UAE, which also possess some of the best Web Designers in UAE. The below discussed points are exerted from the interview with the iOS experts of the best Mobile Apps Development company in Dubai.
The number one advantage to choosing Swift is its clean syntax, which makes it easier to read and write. The number of code lines needed to implement an option on Swift is a lot fewer than for Objective-C.
It’s not possible for Objective-C to evolve without C evolving first. Contrarily, Swift does not have these dependencies, which makes it a lot easier to maintain.
- Safer Platform
Swift language is more stable, so that there will be only fewer crashes and cases of problematic behaviour.
- Less Code & Less Legacy
Swift provides code that is less error-prone because of its inline support for manipulating text strings and data.
Swift also provides various speed advantages during development, in turn, saving on costs.
- Swift Supports Dynamic Libraries
Dynamic libraries feature allows current Swift apps to link against newer versions of the Swift language as it evolves over time.
- ‘Playgrounds’ Encourages Interactive Coding
Playgrounds is a feature that enables programmers to test out a new algorithm without having to create an entire app. Apple has added inline code execution to Playgrounds to help programmers create a chunk of code or write an algorithm while receiving feedback along the way.
Swift was made open-source in 2015, which opens up the language to the potential to be used across a variety of platforms and for backend infrastructure!2
