Swift is a general-purpose, compiled programming language developed by Apple Inc. for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and Linux. Swift is designed to work with Apple's Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, and it's intended to be more resilient and readable than Objective-C.
Swift is a modern, type-safe, and object-oriented language, and it is designed to be easy to read and write, with a focus on performance. It is often used for developing iOS, iPad, and macOS applications.
Swift has a growing popularity in the industry, and its features are becoming more and more powerful, like SwiftUI, a framework for building user interfaces across all Apple platforms, and Swift Package Manager, a tool for managing the distribution of source code.
