IOS is one of the most popular and used mobile platforms across the world. With over a billion devices in use worldwide as of January 2016, it undoubtedly has the focus of so many business apps. Objective-C has been a name associated with IOS development for decades now. But we have a new rival on the block now and that too from Apple itself – SWIFT!


SWIFT was first introduced to the world by Apple at Apple’s 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). SWIFT is powerful and intuitive programming built with LLVM compiler framework and has been added in XCode6 and onwards.

Initially, it was really just me messing around and nobody knew about it because it wasn’t anything to know about. But eventually, it got a little bit more serious […] So I started talking to my management and some of the engineers that were working on Clang, and they seemed excited about it. We got a couple people working on it part-time and I convinced my manager that it was interesting enough that we could have a couple of people work on it.

Swift works with Apple Cocoa and Cocoa Touch Frameworks and existing Objective-C code is already written. It makes use of Objective-C runtime libraries which makes it possible for C, Objective-C, and Swift code modules to run simultaneously.

Swift provides developers with a new innovative and intuitive way to work with code which makes the onboarding much smoother and helps them accomplish much more in much less time. This is probably the reason why there is a widespread buzz around Swift and the indices like TIBOE (March 2017) shows Swift within the monthly top 10 popular programming languages. Considering Swift’s duration on the floor, this was remarkable.

Swift is not a platform, it’s a TREND. Despite being new on the block, it has generated a lot of confidence in its users and business houses.

Early on, we regarded this as somewhat of an experiment, and very risky,

Chris Lambert, LYFT CTO.
